Raiders' CB DJ Hayden still not healthy, may open training camp on the active/PUP list

It looks like Oakland Raiders cornerback D.J. Hayden still isn;t heealthy and fully recovered from an ankle injury. It might cause him to start the season on the active/physically unable to perform list, according to former NFL scout John Middlekauf.

Things seemed good earlier this year when Contra Costa Times’ Steve Corkran reported that Hayden was out of his walking boot and expected to be ready for the start of training camp.

Hayden has had more than his fair share of injury woes, battling a heart issue in college before undergoing abdominal surgery after the Raiders drafted him. He also missed eight games and was put in injured reserve last year for a groin injury.

The Raiders have Carlos Rogers, Tarell Brown, and fourth-round rookie Keith McGill on the roster at the position.
