Raiders news: Takk McKinley will not play Sunday


The #Las #Vegas #Raiders made a clever decision on defensive end #Takk #McKinley several weeks ago, but, in the end, it did not work out for the team.

#Wednesday, #Raiders coach #Jon #Gruden said the pass-rusher will not be able to play #Sunday in the season finale at the #Denver #Broncos. A couple of weeks ago, the #Raiders began the process of getting #McKinley back from a groin injury, but he is simply not ready to play.

#It’s been quite a journey for the former first-round pick since the #Atlanta #Falcons waived him last month. #He was claimed by the #Cincinnati #Bengals, #San #Francisco 49ers, #Cleveland #Browns and the #Raiders. #He was awarded to the #Bengals based on them having the worst record of the claiming teams. #However, #McKinley failed his physical and he was waived again. The other three teams claimed him again and the 49ers were rewarded the #Bay #Area native. #Yet, he failed that physical as well.

The #Raiders and #Browns claimed #McKinley again and he went to the #Raiders, who put him on the injured reserve. #Gruden said he expected #McKinley to be ready to play this season, but the never happened. #So, the #Raiders are on the hook for the end of #McKinley’s 2020 salary.

#McKinley will be a free agent this offseason. #Perhaps the #Raiders will have a head start in re-signing him since he spent time with them. #But the fact that he was so popular on waivers will likely prompt #McKinley to test the open market in free agency to drive up his price tag.

#Also, #Gruden said defensive end #David #Irving, who is on the practice squad, won’t play #Sunday, either. #He played two games with the #Raiders.
