Raiders placed RB Marshawn Lynch (groin/core muscle) on injured reserve.
Lynch is officially out of commission until Week 16 at soonest, although he has undoubtedly played his final down in Oakland. The tanking Raiders had no use for Lynch, and will move forward with Doug Martin, Jalen Richard, and DeAndre Washington. Lynch's tenure in Oakland certainly fell short of his personal hopes, but his on-field performance was quietly excellent. He was the Raiders' best offensive player from midway through the 2017 season up until his 2018 core muscle injury. We suspect Lynch will retire for good at age 32. He is not under contract for 2019.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports injured reserve is a "strong possibility" for Marshawn Lynch.

Lynch is expected to miss at least a month with his groin injury. He'll rehab for now, but surgery hasn't been ruled out. Going on IR would effectively end Lynch's season. Doug Martin will replace Lynch on early downs, with Jalen Richard and DeAndre Washington playing change-up roles.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Marshawn Lynch will miss at least a month with his groin injury.

It's another blow to the Raiders' offense. Lynch has been a bright spot for Oakland this year, averaging a respectable 4.2 yards per carry with three touchdowns through his first six games. Without him, the Raiders will turn to a committee featuring some combination of Doug Martin and Jalen Richard. Perhaps Oakland will scour the free agent market to see what running backs are available.

Raiders coach Jon Gruden admits the team is concerned about Marshawn Lynch's groin injury, and that it could be a long-term issue.

Yikes. It sounds like Lynch will be seeing some doctors during the Raiders' Week 7 bye. Ageless Lynch has a been rare bright spot for Jon Gruden's unmitigated disaster of a team so far this season. His loss would be massive on offense. Although Jalen Richard is catching a ton of passes, Doug Martin is the next man up for Lynch's role.
Oct 16 - 4:06 PM

Marshawn Lynch rushed 13 times for 45 yards and caught 3-of-5 targets for 14 yards in the Raiders' Week 6 loss to Seattle.

It was a frustrating day for the entire Raiders' offense, which would have gotten shut out if not for a garbage-time field goal to "cut the deficit" to 27-3. Lynch has been Oakland's best offensive player, but he has been boom or bust in fantasy because the Raiders have too often found themselves in negative game script. Lynch now draws a Week 7 bye to rest his 32-year-old legs.
Oct 14 - 4:00 PM

Marshawn Lynch (hip) was limited at Wednesday's practice.

It's a new injury for Lynch. The Raiders like to manage his practice reps, so this isn't a Week 6 concern. Lynch is an RB2 for Sunday's matchup with Seattle.
Oct 10 - 6:57 PM

Marshawn Lynch rushed nine times for 31 yards, adding two catches for 10 yards in the Raiders' Week 5 romping by the Chargers.

Lynch's volume goes as the Raiders' game script goes, and the Raiders' game script got completely out of hand in this one. Jalen Richard even got involved late with Oakland in full-on catch-up mode, finishing with six catches on the day. Lynch is still averaging 15.4 carries and has received at least 18 in Oakland's three competitive games this season. With Seattle next up, Lynch should resume the RB2-usage we're accustomed to.
Oct 7 - 8:58 PM

Marshawn Lynch (abdomen) wasn't listed on the Raiders' final injury report for Week 5 against the Chargers.

Lynch was limited by an abdominal injury at Thursday's practice, but there was never any doubt about his status for Sunday's game. When asked about the possibility of scaling back Lynch's workload, coach Jon Gruden said, "We’ll just keep feeding him Skittles and keep sending him out there as long as he can." Coming off a 157-yard eruption last week against Cleveland, Beast Mode is a worthy RB2 in all formats.
Oct 5 - 3:33 PM

Marshawn Lynch was limited in Thursday's practice with an abdomen issue.

Lynch was previously listed with his shoulder. Lynch will be a high-end RB2 for Sunday's matchup with the Chargers.
Oct 4 - 8:11 PM

Marshawn Lynch (shoulder) returned to practice on Thursday.

Lynch was just getting a breather on Wednesday. He'll be fine to play his normal snaps Sunday against the Chargers. The 32-year-old has already put up 300 rushing yards this year, which ranks fourth in the league behind only Ezekiel Elliott, Todd Gurley and Matt Breida.
Oct 4 - 4:34 PM

Marshawn Lynch (shoulder) didn't practice Wednesday.

The Raiders have been managing Lynch's practice reps all year. Lynch is a high-end RB2 for Week 5 at the Chargers. Daily Slant: Raiders/Chargers is up to the second highest game total this week at 53.5, and Lynch is still cheap enough in DFS to consider in cash games. He's gone for 100 yards or a TD in every game this year and should keep it rolling against LA.
Oct 3 - 5:16 PM

Marshawn Lynch rushed 20 times for 130 yards and caught 3-of-5 targets for 27 yards in the Raiders' Week 4 win over the Browns.

Lynch's highlight came on a pitch play where he got to the perimeter of the Browns' defense and followed an impressive downfield block by Martavis Bryant to gain 59 yards. Lynch failed to score due to repeated goal-line stuffs, but this was his biggest rushing-yardage performance since 2014 with Seattle. Lynch now has 20 or more touches in three straight games. In an improving Raiders offense, he will be a high-end RB2 play in Week 5 at the Chargers.
Sep 30 - 8:22 PM

Marshawn Lynch (shoulder) wasn't listed on the Raiders' final injury report for Week 4 against the Browns.

Lynch has been following this pattern most of the season, practicing on a limited basis throughout the week before being removed from the injury report on Friday. Beast Mode will be safe to fire up as an RB2 Sunday against Cleveland.
Sep 28 - 5:00 PM

Marshawn Lynch (shoulder) remained limited at Thursday's practice.

The Raiders have been limiting Marshawn's practice reps all year. He's in no danger of missing Week 4 against Cleveland.
Sep 27 - 8:00 PM

Marshawn Lynch (shoulder) was limited at Wednesday's practice.

Lynch may not get in a full practice all year. At age 32, he doesn't need to. Beast Mode will be ready to rock and roll against Cleveland in Week 4. He'll be taking a three-game touchdown streak into that matchup.
