Raiders Place Marcus Mariota On IR, Add DeShone Kizer To P-Squad

The Raiders have placed quarterback Marcus Mariota on injured reserve, per a club announcement. For added insurance, the club has added one-time Notre Dame star DeShone Kizer to the Raiders’ practice squad. 

Mariota’s strained pectoral muscle will keep him out for at least three weeks, per the league’s modified rules for 2020. Without him, the Raiders are rolling with two QBs on the active roster – Derek Carr and Nathan Peterman. Mariota’s temporary absence may take a little bit of pressure off of Derek Carr, who has certainly heard the footsteps. Mariota, who was leapfrogged by Ryan Tannehill in Tennessee, finished the year with a career-low 59.4% completion rate and just 1,203 yards.

Kizer has been on the workout trail ever since he was cut by the club in May, but those tryouts didn’t land him a deal. Now, the 2017 second-round pick will stick around in Las Vegas as he waits for his next opportunity. Kizer, 24, has made 18 appearances over the course of his NFL career, most of which came during the Browns’ winless season. All in all, he’s got eleven touchdowns against 24 interceptions.

Here’s the full rundown of the Raiders’ practice squad after Monday’s move:

Jaguars Sign CB Parry Nickerson

Days after trading their top cornerback to the Rams, the Jaguars have made an addition to their defensive backfield, announcing today that they’ve signed free agent cornerback Parry Nickerson.

Jalen Ramsey hadn’t been in the Jaguars’ lineup since Week 3, meaning Jacksonville had been turning to second-year pro Tre Herndon to play outside cornerback opposite A.J. Bouye. Herndon hasn’t been very successful, grading out as a bottom-10 corner league-wide per Pro Football Focus.

Nickerson was well-regarded before becoming a fifth-round pick of the Jets in 2018, so there’s a chance he could see significant action by season’s end. However, the results of his rookie campaign weren’t anything special, as Nickerson ranked as the fourth-worst cornerback among players with at least 200 defensive snaps, per PFF.

A Tulane product, Nickerson played in all 16 games (two starts) for the Jets last season before being dealt to Seattle this offseason. He spent time with the Seahawks’ practice squad before being cut loose earlier this week.

Before signing Nickerson, the Jaguars also auditioned fellow corners Jordan Brown, Kenneth Durden, Arrion Springs, according to veteran NFL reporter Howard Balzer (Twitter link).
