Oakland Raiders rookie defensive back DJ Hayden will miss the team's Friday preseason opener against the Dallas Cowboys, according to Scott Bair of ComcastSportsnet.
Hayden reportedly pulled hamstring during the practice on Monday, but that's not the reason he'll be out for the game. He has not yet been cleared for contact after his surgery to remove scar tissue left from his previous heart surgery.
"Really the only injury update is D.J. Hayden who's got a little bit of a hamstring," head coach Dennis Allen said. "We'll see where he's at when we come back to work on Wednesday. . . DJ won't play in the game against Dallas so we'll kinda reevaluate where we're at with him after that.
"It's really more of a relation to the surgery he had this off-season as opposed to the heart condition."
Hayden officially ruled out of Friday's game. Had a hamstring flareup today, but offseason surgery will keep him out.

Former backup running back Taiwan Jones is looking like an NFL cornerback so far at Oakland Raiders training camp in Napa. The hometown kid has become a favorite of the Raider Nation even though he has not seen the field nearly enough.
During the 2011 draft, Reggie McKenzie actually had Jones pegged as a cornerback not a running back when he was in the Green Bay Packers draft...
The Oakland Raiders have released their first depth chart for the upcoming season via the team’s official website, which can be seen here or in the picture above. Although training camp has just about a week and half since its opening, it is always a good opportunity to take a look at how the positional battles are developing, with eyes set […]
According to San Francisco Chronicle, rookie quarterback Tyler Wilson is now fourth on the Raiders depth chart behind Matt Flynn, Terrelle Pryor and Matt McGloin.
At Sunday’s practice, Matt Flynn, Terrelle Pryor and then undrafted Matt McGloin took turns in the two-minute drill, driving the team downfield. Fourth-round pick Tyler Wilson watched and when the buzzer sounded, jogged...
The Oakland Raiders once had one of the best defenses in the league, but that hasn’t been the case for a while. This offseason, general manager Reggie McKenzie did his best to fix that problem by bringing in some veteran players who can help the Raiders new and improved secondary in more ways than one.
Last year the Raiders were ranked 23rd in interceptions as they only had 11...
Raiders CB D.J. Hayden is out for their preseason opener against the Dallas
Cowboys, according to Michael Wagaman of the Associated Press. Hayden had
noticeably pulled up with a tight hamstring during Monday’s practice, but head
coach Dennis Allen said that was not why Hayden was out for the opener.
According to Allen, the Raiders new cornerback will miss their game against...
When it comes to big-risk running backs, there are none bigger than Raiders' Darren McFadden and Cowboys' DeMarco Murray. McFadden's current average draft position is recorded as No. 29, 32, and 30. Murray is given the slight edge at No. 27, 31, and 25. If you're looking at either of these big-bodied backs it's probably to fill the role of RB2 or Flex.
Reviews for Raiders rookie cornerback DJ Hayden from training camp have been generally positive, kinda like that new movie with a roided up Matt Damon about Occupy Wall Street in space or something. That’s good considering he was virtually absent for all of the team’s offseason activities after undergoing abdominal surgery related to his near-death injury last fall.
We all will...
Last off-season, I had the Raiders as one of the worst teams in the NFL going into 2012, as so many years of poor roster management by Al Davis and the previous regime left new GM Reggie McKenzie pretty powerless in his first off-season with the team, in terms of cap flexibility and draft picks. Hue Jackson’s trade for Carson Palmer left them without a 1st round pick...
