Draft Scout D.J. Hayden News
10/15/14 - CB DJ Hayden was back on the field Wednesday for the first time since late May following a foot injury and subsequent surgery in early June. Hayden spent training camp on the physically unable to perform list and was moved to regular-season PUP at the cut to 53 players.
Hayden intercepted a pass and was delighted to be back on the field.
"I felt like I was 100 percent probably three weeks ago, running and cutting," Hayden said. "I just had to wait my time. I waited and now it's my time."
While Hayden proclaimed himself ready to go, interim head coach Tony Sparano was taking a wait and see approach.
"I anticipate taking it day by day and evaluating it with the coaches and Reggie (McKenzie) and kind of seeing kind of where we are right now with him," Sparano said.
Hayden, a first-round draft pick in 2013, played in eight games last season before being lost to sports hernia surgery. The Raiders have a 21-day window to put Hayden on the active roster or keep him PUP for the rest of the season.
