The Raiders have dealt with several COVID-19 issues since the start of the regular season and they put a player on the reserve/COVID-19 list on Thursday.

The Raiders have placed linebacker Cory Littleton on the reserve/COVID-19 list. Littleton joins right tackle Trent Brown on the list.

Players go on the list after testing positive or after being deemed a close contact of someone who has tested positive. There’s no word on the reason for Littleton’s placement, but he would be out five days as a high risk close contact and that would seem to put him at risk of missing Sunday’s game against the Broncos.

Littleton has started every game in his first season with the Raiders. He has 48 tackles and three tackles for loss.

  1. Littleton has been a major liability at the LB spot. Getting him out of there may actually be a blessing in disguise. Time to call up Javin White and see what he can do.

  2. Gruden and Mayock’s FA hauls have been awful. Joyner for 40+ mill, Tyrell for 40+ mill, Littleton for 36 mill, Nassib for 24 mill, Collins for 6 mill, Trent Brown for 60+ mill. Riot and Incognito have worked out. But they also lit two 3rd rounders on fire this season drafting Bowden and Tanner Muse. How’s Damarous Randall working out? How about jason Witten? Agholor has been okay. How’s Jeff Heath? What’s Marcus Mariota doing? I mean, seriously. Not to mention all the terrible trades for WRs (AB, Trevor Davis, Zay Jones). The pick we traded for AB was Diontae Johnson, who’s balling for the Steelers right now.

  3. To be fair in the 5 games Tyrell was actually healthy for us he scored 5 TDs, but the best ability is availability. For the most part though i agree weve over spent on average talent though. Trent seems to find away to stay off the field (obviously not counting this past time a doctor tried to kill him).

    Joyner and Littleton are both Rams that had decent years because of how good their Dline was and now with an average at best Dline their true character has shown. Nassib is just starting to get hot with the more playing time now that Arden Key is out (shouldve been benched anyway)

    Id say youre off on Jason Witten and Heath so far though, Jason has been huge with blocking for us in heavy sets and Heath is key on special teams and rotationally.

    My biggest disappointment so far is in Mo Hurst, he just hasnt taken the next step yet. Hankins is great at being a bolder in the middle but we need Mo to get after the QB and it just hasnt worked out.

  4. If this was the only way to get Littleton out of the starting rotation I’ll take. Nothing personal against the guy, but he was horrific against the chargers. He can’t tackle, especially in space and he can’t cover. I mean the guy had a holding call on the goal line trying to cover the TE and still got beat on the play even though the pass wasn’t completed. I mean if you are going to hold you shouldn’t get beat on a pass pattern.

    To think they have no other LB that can play better is scary. I think the Rams defense covered a lot of his individual weakness that are being exposed now, because the Raiders defense is still in rebuilding mode.
