D.J. Hayden: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

Hayden (foot) was officially activated to the Raiders' 53-man roster Saturday, Vic Tafur of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Interim coach Tony Sparano indicated earlier in the week that Hayden had a chance to play against Cleveland, and it would seem he indeed showed enough in practice this week to warrant a return to action. The second-year corner figures to play a significant role right off the bat for Oakland, though he may very well be on a snap count in his first couple games back.
Hayden (foot) is expected to be activated for Sunday's game against the Browns, NFL.com reports.

Hayden (foot) will begin the regular season on the Raiders' PUP list, NFL.com reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Hayden appeared destined for this roster move, since a bevy of injuries have hampered his progress throughout the offseason. Following an eight-game rookie season, Hayden sprained his ankle this summer and underwent surgery to repair a stress fracture in his foot just before training camp. The oft-injured cornerback is currently rehabbing his foot, but the Raiders want to ensure their 2013 first-rounder is fully healthy once he's activated. With that goal, Oakland will keep Hayden sidelined for the first six games of this season before he becomes eligible to join the team in practice. Until that happens, offseason signings Tarell Brown and Carlos Rodgers will comprise the Raiders' starting cornerback duo.
Hayden (foot) appears poised to begin this season on the PUP list, which would force him to miss Oakland's first six games, NFL.com reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Hayden's brief NFL career has been marred by injuries. Following abdomen surgery, as well as hamstring and groin problems during his rookie season, Hayden sprained his ankle this offseason and needed surgery to repair a stress fracture in his foot just before training camp. As such, Hayden played only eight games last season and will begin his second year on the Raiders' PUP list. Although the 2013 12th overall pick has increased his workout activity of late, it sounds like Oakland is comfortable easing him back to action to ensure he's finally completely functional once he returns. If Hayden misses the start of the season, Tarell Brown and Carlos Rodgers would be the Raiders' starting cornerback duo.

2014

Less than a month after being drafted by the Raiders with the 12th overall pick in 2013, Hayden was forced to undergo surgery to remove scar tissue from his abdomen, an issue directly related to the November 2012 procedure he had to repair a torn heart vain. He was cleared to practice prior to the start of training camp, but a hamstring injury popped up in August and a groin issue ultimately cut Hayden's rookie season short after eight games. When on the field, Hayden's performance was a mixed bag, as he showed flashes -- such as his interception in Week 5 to seal a win over the Chargers -- but was also torched on several occasions. His latest health issue, a sprained right ankle, has sidelined Hayden since early in minicamp, but coach Dennis Allen doesn't expect it to limit him much in training camp. If healthy, Hayden should start on the outside opposite Carlos Rogers.

2013

Life-saving surgery to repair a torn heart vain last fall wasn't enough to scare the Raiders away from taking Hayden with the No. 12 overall pick in April's draft. The second-guessing started almost immediately, however, as the 23-year-old had to undergo another procedure less than a month after being drafted to clean out scar tissue around his abdomen, which was a result of his prior surgery. Much to the delight of the Raiders, Hayden was cleared to practice ahead of the start of training camp, and he projects to start right away for Oakland, assuming his health holds up. Not only did Hayden show lock-down ability at the University of Houston, but he also displayed a great nose for finding the ball, creating 12 turnovers (6 interceptions, 6 forced fumbles) in his two years at the school.
