Raiders to decide in next couple days if Donald Penn will return or head to injured reserve

Donald Penn returned to practice a couple weeks ago and could be nearing a return for the Oakland Raiders. Just in time to save Derek Carr’s body from further punishment. On October 3, Penn was Designated for injury reserve but eligible for return with a groin injury. Once eight weeks had passed the Raiders made the decision to take him off of IR and have had three weeks to activate him per head coach Jon Gruden. “There is a chance that he could be up this week,” Gruden said of Penn. “We’ll address that here in the next couple of days.

Raiders vs. Bengals: 4 Winners, 4 Losers

Like most games played in the morning in the Eastern Time Zone, this one did not go the Raiders way. Oakland’s offense was ineffective throughout and the injuries suffered by virtually the entire offense line made this game an absolute unwatchable slog. I’m not sure what this win does for the Bengals other than put them in a worse draft position where they can select yet another mediocre corner, but they gotta do them. WINNERS 1) Joe Mixon Mixon has been one of the only bright spots for the Bengals this season, and he’s pretty much the only reason they held on to win this game. Mixon...

AFC North standings: Steelers beat Patriots; Bengals only team in division eliminated from playoffs

Every team in the division won this week, and in doing so eliminated the Bengals from playoff contention. As one could predict, wins at the end of this season for the Cincinnati Bengals are too little, too late. Marvin Lewis’ team, which was depleted with injuries, played admirably against the struggling Oakland Raiders. Joe Mixon, Tyler Boyd and Geno Atkins reached various milestones in the game, as the Bengals beat the Raiders for the fourth time in the last five contests. Mixon had his third 100-yard rushing game of the year, while Boyd surpassed the 1,000-yard receiving mark with...

Bengals Injury Roundup: Tyler Boyd and Jordan Evans miss second half vs. Raiders

Cincinnati suffers yet another setback to their offense that is already low on threats. The Bengals knocked the Raiders back to the dirt and won for the first time since late October. However, the roster from that win in Week 8 looks drastically different than the one finishing the Bengals’ home finale in Week 15. Players like A.J. Green and Andy Dalton are on injured reserve, and now Cincinnati is holding its breathe they don’t have to add anyone else to that list after two talented young players left the game against Oakland.

Sunday the Seattle Seahawks suffered a significant blow when they fell to the San Francisco 49ers in overtime of Week 15, however, what could prove to be an even bigger blow to the team’s postseason aspirations moving forward was the loss of right guard Jordan Simmons. Simmons was claimed off waivers from the Oakland Raiders at the end of training camp, and he has filled in admirably for D.J.

Bengals snap count takeaways: Cincinnati’s offense asserted control over Oakland

For once this season, the Bengals flipped the script and dominated the number of snaps for offense. The Bengals snapped a five-game losing streak on Sunday when they defeated the Raiders, 30-16. Winning without A.J. Green and Andy Dalton in the lineup has never been easy for Cincinnati, and they didn’t even have Tyler Boyd for most of the game as well, but the defense stepped up despite getting hit with a few injuries, and the offense finally has found an identity.
