Today was the first day that Raiders’ quarterback Marcus Mariota was eligible to return to practice and return he did. He had been placed on injured reserve just prior to the start of the season, and with 2020 rules, the minimum time out is three weeks.

Mariota’s return opens a 21-day window for them to activate him to the roster, but his availability meant the team no longer had a need for quarterback DeShone Kizer on the practice squad, so he was subsequently released.

With the release of Kizer from the practice squad, the team brought back wide receiver De’Mornay Pierson-El onto the practice squad.
