  • Raiders' Denzel Perryman: Heads to IR

    Las Vegas placed Perryman (shoulder) on injured reserve Wednesday.

    Perryman was expected to miss the final two games of the regular season after dislocating his shoulder during last week's loss to Pittsburgh, so his move to IR was simply transactional. The veteran linebacker will end the season with 83 tackles, two interceptions and one sack across 12 appearances.

  • Raiders' Denzel Perryman: Will be shut down

    Perryman (shoulder) won't play during the final two games of the regular season, Jordan Schultz of reports.

    Perryman dislocated his shoulder in Saturday's loss to Pittsburgh, prompting an early end to his campaign. The linebacker couldn't come close to matching the career-best mark of 154 tackles he posted last season, but he was still leading Las Vegas with 83 stops prior to being shut down. Perryman's starting role could be assumed by Curtis Bolton, who has yet to log a defensive snap in the NFL. Meanwhile, it's likely the Raiders will place Perryman on IR in the coming days.

  • Raiders' Denzel Perryman: Likely out for season

    Perryman isn't expected to return for the remainder of the season after dislocating his shoulder in Saturday's 13-10 loss to the Steelers, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

    Perryman is now anticipated to miss the rest of the season due to the dislocated shoulder he sustained in Week 16 against Pittsburgh. If that's indeed the case, then the veteran linebacker will finish the 2022 campaign with 83 tackles, one sack and two interceptions across 12 games. Curtis Bolton should be in store for additional defensive snaps should Perryman eventually miss time.

  • Raiders' Denzel Perryman: Leaves with shoulder injury

    Perryman left Saturday's loss to the Steelers with a shoulder injury.

    Perryman picked up four tackles (two solo) and an interception in Saturday's contest, but his night came to an early end due to the injury he picked up in the fourth quarter. He had to be helped off the field, but the extent of his injury is not yet known.

  • Raiders' Denzel Perryman: Logs nine tackles against Patriots

    Perryman tallied nine tackles (eight solo) in Las Vegas' Week 15 30-24 victory versus New England.

    Perryman continues to post solid but unspectacular tackle numbers, recording between six and 10 stops in each of the nine games in which he has played since Week 5. While the consistency is nice, the veteran linebacker hasn't come close to the career-best numbers he posted last season, when he finished third in the NFL with a career-high 154 stops. Perryman is trending up, however, as he has played on 100 percent of the Raiders' defensive snaps over the past two weeks after failing to do so in any of the team's first 12 contests this season.

  • Raiders' Denzel Perryman: Active for Sunday

    Perryman (hip) will be available to play against the Patriots on Sunday.

    Perryman was limited during each practice Week 15 while dealing with a hip injury. While the exact nature of this issue is still unclear, it won't keep him from suiting up Sunday. Perryman is also played every defensive snap for the first time this season versus the Rams last week, so it's possible he could see similar usage against New England.

  • Raiders' Denzel Perryman: Considered questionable

    Perryman (hip) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Patriots, Vic Tafur of The Athletic reports.

    Perryman was limited at practice all week and appears to be trending towards a true game-time decision. Curtis Bolton would be the likely candidate to replace him at middle linebacker should he ultimately be unable to go.

  • Raiders' Denzel Perryman: Second-leading tackler Sunday

    Perryman recorded seven tackles (two solo) in Sunday's 27-20 victory versus the Chargers.

    Perryman played a season-high 60 defensive snaps after logging back-to-back limited practices with a wrist injury to end Week 13 prep. While this ultimately represented his usual share of playing time, the eighth-year linebacker still finished right on pace with his per-game average for tackles. Perryman was also estimated as a full participant on the Raiders' first injury report of Week 14, according to Vincent Bonsignore of the Las Vegas Review-Journal, so he should be set to play a similar role against the Rams on Thursday Night Football.

  • Raiders' Denzel Perryman: Set to play Sunday

    Perryman (wrist) has been ruled active for Sunday's game against the Raiders, according to the Raiders' official Twitter account.

    Perryman popped up with a wrist injury that kept him limited in practice Thursday and Friday, though he'll still manage to suit up for this matchup against his former team. The 30-year-old has been one of the Raiders' top tacklers when healthy this season.

  • Raiders' Denzel Perryman: Deemed questionable for Sunday

    Perryman (wrist) is questionable for Sunday's matchup against the Chargers, Anthony Galaviz of The Fresno Bee reports.

    Perryman landed on the injury report Thursday as a limited participant due to a wrist injury and remained limited Friday. If the Raiders' starting middle linebacker is unable to suit up, Curtis Bolton, who's yet to see a defensive snap in the NFL, could be in store for a hefty workload in Week 13.

  • Raiders' Denzel Perryman: Paces team in stops, interceptions

    Perryman recorded nine tackles (four solo) and one interception during Sunday's 40-34 overtime win over the Seahawks.

    Perryman snagged his first interception since Week 13 of the 2019-20 campaign, while he also logged a team-high nine tackles in the Raiders' Week 12 victory in Seattle. The veteran will look to continue being an integral part of Las Vegas' defensive unit in this weekend's divisional matchup versus the Chargers.

  • Raiders' Denzel Perryman: Six stops Week 11

    Perryman recorded six tackles (five solo) during Sunday's 22-16 overtime victory versus the Broncos.

    Perryman played 71 percent of Las Vegas' defensive snaps after sitting out last week's loss to Indianapolis due to a lingering hip injury. The 29-year-old also paced the Raiders' linebackers in stops, tying defensive end Maxx Crosby for the team's second-most tackles against Denver. Perryman has now recorded 24 tackles while playing 140 defensive snaps over his past three games, and he should continue to slot in as one of his team's top tacklers while Divine Deablo (forearm) remains out on IR.

  • Raiders' Denzel Perryman: Will suit up Sunday

    Perryman (hip) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Broncos.

    Perryman was ruled inactive with a hip injury ahead of last week's loss to the Colts, leaving him questionable to play Week 11. However, the issue appears to have improved after a week off, and the middle linebacker should reprise his starting role between Jayon Brown and Luke Masterson on Sunday.
