  • Raiders' Darien Butler: Placed on IR

    The Raiders placed Butler (undisclosed) on the injured reserve list Tuesday.

    Butler was set to compete for a depth role in the Raiders' linebacker corps after posting 11 tackles in 15 games last year. He'll miss the 2023 season unless he reaches an injury settlement with Las Vegas.

  • Raiders' Darien Butler: Back for minicamp

    Butler (concussion) is slated to compete for a role in the Raiders' linebacker corps this season, Hondo S. Carpenter Sr. of Sports Illustrated reports.

    The 23-year-old suffered a concussion during Week 17 of the 2022 NFL season but has since had the offseason to move past the issue. Butler appeared in 15 games last year and totaled 11 tackles for Las Vegas. Barring any setbacks, the Arizona State product is slated to backup Robert Spillane at weakside linebacker.

  • Raiders' Darien Butler: Sitting out regular-season finale

    Butler (concussion) has been ruled out for Saturday's game against the Chiefs.

    Butler was forced out with a concussion during the Week 17 loss to the 49ers. The 22-year-old did manage to log a limited practice Wednesday, though it appears he's yet to fully clear protocols after finishing Week 18 prep as a non-participant Thursday. Butler recorded 11 tackles as a core special-teamer across 15 games this season, and his absence will leave Las Vegas with three available linebackers Saturday versus Kansas City.

  • Raiders' Darien Butler: Will not return

    Butler will not return to Sunday's game against the 49ers after suffering a concussion.

    Butler will now enter the league's concussion protocols, which will potentially end his season early, and at least leave his Week 18 status in question. In his absence, Harvey Langi will likely see extra opportunities at outside linebacker.

  • Raiders' Darien Butler: Active in Week 16

    Butler (ribs) is active for Saturday's game at Pittsburgh.

    After he departed last Sunday's win against the Patriots early with a rib injury, Butler was contained to limited sessions during Week 16 prep. Now that he's been cleared to play through the issue, he'll resume a role on special teams in which he's tallied 10 tackles in 13 contests this season.

  • Raiders' Darien Butler: Questionable versus Pittsburgh

    Butler (ribs) is deemed questionable to play Saturday against the Steelers.

    Butler exited Sunday's win over the Patriots with a rib injury, and he was limited in each practice during Week 16 prep. The 5-foot-10 linebacker has logged 10 tackles while serving as a core special-teamer over 13 games this season.

  • Raiders' Darien Butler: Injured in win

    Butler was forced out with a rib injury during Sunday's 30-24 win over the Patriots.

    Butler did not record a statistic before exiting, and it's unclear when or how this injury first arose. His status during the Raiders' first practice Week 16 should provide more clarity on his status heading into Saturday's game against Pittsburgh. Butler recorded 10 tackles while almost exclusively playing on special teams heading into Sunday's win.
