Raiders linebacker Aaron Curry Tweeted that he wasn’t activated today, which means that he won’t play Sunday against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Raiders have three more days to decide how to proceed.
Curry returned from the physically unable to perform list Oct. 17. That started a 21-day clock in which the Raiders can activate Curry at any point or wait until the evaluation period ends before placing him on season-ending injured reserve or waiving him outright.
Given the Raiders are paying Curry this season, one way or the other, it would seem to make the most sense to activate him and use him on special teams and as a backup, at least.
However, it’s possible that the Raiders are content with the players they have on their 53-man roster right now and don’t want to cut a player to make room for Curry.
The Raiders have to make a move before Wednesday, so time is running out.
