Raiders cornerback DJ Hayden had surgery for stress fracture, opens camp on PUP

Cornerback DJ Hayden had surgery to repair a stress fracture following the team’s mandatory minicamp and will open training camp on the physically unable to perform (PUP) list, coach Dennis Allen said Thursday.

The Raiders will open training camp with Carlos Rogers and Tarell Brown working with the first team as starting cornerbacks. Rogers will slide inside in the nickel defense, with Chimdi Chekwa and rookie TJ Carrie playing corner.

Hayden hurt his right ankle during the first organized team activity in May, at which point Allen said he was “light years ahead’’ of the pace set as an injury-wracked rookie season.

Initial tests showed no problems, Allen said. However, when Hayden failed to show progress, a second MRI detected a stress fracture and Allen said a surgical procedure was done approximately a month ago.

“I wish I had a time frame, I really don’t know what it’s going to be,’’ Allen said. “It’s disappointing for him and for me because he’s a guy we were counting on being able to step up and help us this year and he’s a young player and he needs the reps.’’

Allen said he has seen players return from such procedures in as little as four weeks but sometimes as long as eight. In any event, there is a chance Hayden could not be available for any of the 13 training camp practices in Napa.

A rookie first-round pick out of Houston, Hayden missed much of his rookie training camp and workout time after surgery to remove scar tissue related to his trauma surgery in college. He was out after eight games last season and had sports hernia surgery.

Other players who will not be able to practice for the Raiders during their first workout Friday are tight end Nick Kasa (hip flexor), and guard Lucas Nix (knee). Safety Usama Young (quad) and cornerback Keith McGill (ankle) were injured during the team’s conditioning drill Thursday and may join those players on PUP.

Players who were injured away from the team while training included defensive tackle Stacy McGee (thumb) and defensive tackle C.J. Wilson (hamstring), who will open camp on the non-football injury list.

Outside linebacker Kevin Burnett, a starter last season, is expected

    Why would you buy season tickets to sell them to someone else?

    Don’t be scared Jame Gumb its only beer…

  • http://ggeden.blogspot.com/ GG

    Anyone else agree we’ll only keep 2 QBs on roster?
    We have a number of worthwhile players for depth at many other positions.

    It’ll be easy to tell if she really sold them. Look for missing teeth – the telltale sign of meth addicts.

  • Sir Raider Duck, OMS

    I think it depends on how much promise McGloin shows. We know he’s better than Pryor, but that’s about it.

  • http://cosmicdanceband.com/ SilverandBlack666

    No because we used all three last year and I suspect we will this year again.

  • Sir Raider Duck, OMS

    Hey, I was wrong and I admit it.

  • http://cosmicdanceband.com/ SilverandBlack666

    and you see the backpedaling starting right now?

  • RaidingTexas

    Lol that wasn’t a shot at you. Nevermind.

  • Elliot

    Hey bro that was me elraidmanhatan. Seriously when they changed the format I just used my actual real first name not to deceive just wanted to log on…I am 6’2 Btw and I never said I had a Porsche. But I am real and bleed silver and black

  • Purvisman/Eternal Optimist

    Well, Duh! I let Ghostery allow Twitter and there we are! Thanks, guys.

  • Purvisman/Eternal Optimist

    His arm and accuracy were never in question. Pressure in real game scenarios was the worry.

  • http://batman-news.com 559 Raider 87

    We need 3 QBs on roster, but dont need to activate all 3 on game day

  • http://ggeden.blogspot.com/ GG

    And if he doesn’t we have Rivera.
    TE depth of Ausberry and Rivera is ok.

  • Elliot

    I live in Long Island City now…I am also past our ridiculous garbage. ..I want to avoid the baiting and stick with my team getting back to some sort of relevance. .are we cool with that..

  • http://batman-news.com 559 Raider 87

    True, guess we should find out more in live action preseason. Id let them split time against 1′s if it is that clsoe. Similar to the Seattle Wilson/Flynn situation. Flynn brought it as starter, but diddnt make it out as the starter

  • http://ggeden.blogspot.com/ GG

    We should know by now Camp is camp. When pre-season comes around, is a much better gauge.

  • http://cosmicdanceband.com/ SilverandBlack666

    Yes I am cool with that. I am sorry by the way

  • Elliot

    I see Olson using bboth for quick ins and then using their speed turning upfield..

  • RaidingTexas

    Matty!!!

  • http://cosmicdanceband.com/ SilverandBlack666

    I like McGloin

  • Elliot

    hey I appreciate that man. I think most of that crap was out of frustration over this team…I am dying for them to be good again, like you

  • Purvisman/Eternal Optimist

    if Carr is #2, which is likely, I really think it’ll be more like co #2′s and QuickDraw will get a lot more work than your average #3.

  • disqus_yeZNegncsV

    let him learn w/out pressure–that’s how stabler became good

  • disqus_yeZNegncsV

    we’ll keep three

  • Purvisman/Eternal Optimist

    Were you the one that said you could solve quadratic equations in your head while eating a ham sammy/

  • http://cosmicdanceband.com/ SilverandBlack666

    yeah I agree its been depressing the last couple of years.
