11/11/14 - CB DJ Hayden did not finish the Denver game with a groin injury and his status is uncertain going in to the week of preparation for San Diego.
11/09/14 - CB DJ Hayden made his first start of the season Sunday against Denver and picked off his first pass of 2014. On his second play from scrimmage, Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning threw deep over the middle to WR Emmanuel Sanders, but Hayden knifed in to make the interception. Hayden, the Raiders' top pick in the 2013 NFL Draft, left the game in the fourth quarter with a groin injury.
10/29/14 - CB DJ Hayden felt great about playing his first game in almost a calendar year.
The 2013 first-round draft pick played only five snaps on defense -- he was on the field for a 6-yard touchdown pass from Brian Hoyer to Andrew Hawkins -- and played 14 snaps on special teams.
"I'm just glad I'm even out there," Hayden said. "I'm glad I'm out there suiting up. That's all that matters to me."
Hayden reiterated what he said after being taken off the physically unable to perform list and placed on the 53-man roster.
"If they need me to play every snap, I can play every snap," Hayden said. "Whatever they need me to do, I'm there."
Sparano sounds as if he'll hold back on the full-time option with Hayden.
"I thought DJ did a good job in the game," Sparano said. "He competed hard and he really played fast. Little by little, we'll get him more involved."
