Vanderdoes (knee) will remain on the Reserve/Physically Unable to Perform list for the remainder of the 2018 season.
Oakland's deadline to activate Vanderdoes to the 53-man roster came and passed Monday, relegating the second-year defensive tackle to the PUP list for the remainder of the season. It remains to be seen whether the decision to keep Vanderdoes on the PUP list came due to a setback in his recovery, or another undisclosed reason. Vanderdoes played all 16 games during his rookie year with the Raiders, and will set his sights on a return during the 2019 season.
Vanderdoes (knee) will not suit up during the 2018 season, Matt Schneidman of The San Jose Mercury News reports.
Vanderdeos returned to practice last week, but the Raiders have ultimately elected to put the second-year defensive tackle on season-ending injured reserve rather than activate him to the 53-man roster. The former third-round pick will set his sights on the 2019 season.
Vanderdoes (knee) will not play against the Chargers on Sunday, Michael Gehlken of the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports.
As expected, Vanderdoes will not make his 2018 debut Sunday. The Raiders will need to decide whether to promote the second-year pro to the 53-man roster or place him on injured reserve before Week 11 kicks off, since Vanderdoes first returned to practice on Oct. 22. Vanderdoes is expected to be promoted to the active roster, giving him a good chance of suiting up against the Cardinals on Nov. 18.
Vanderdoes (knee) likely won't play Sunday against the Chargers, but is more probable to make his 2018 debut against the Cardinals in Week 11, Matt Schneidman of The San Jose Mercury News reports.
Vanderdoes reported to practice for the first time in 2018 on Oct. 22, thus beginning the three-week period in which the team can evaluate him for a return to the 53-man roster. The UCLA product was a long shot to be activated for last week's contest against the 49ers, and it doesn't appear that he will be activated for this week's matchup with the Chargers either. That three-week period will end after this week, and it seems likely that Vanderdoes will be activated after Week 10 and will play Week 11 against the Cardinals.
Vanderdoes (knee) is a "long shot" to be activated in time for Thursday's matchup against the 49ers, Matt Kawahara of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Vanderdoes returned to practice last week, beginning the three-week period in which he can be activated to the active roster. The 24-year-old can be activated at any point, but it doesn't appear that he has progressed well enough to be activated in time for Thursday's contest against the 49ers.
