Raiders left tackle Donald Penn is expected to end his 25-day holdout and return to practice this week, as early as Tuesday, Vic Tafur of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Penn missed all of training camp in Napa, seeking a substantial raise from his 2017 salary of $5.95 million.

That isn’t going to happen — not yet, at least, as negotiations might pick up once Penn returns — but he probably will get that salary guaranteed for at least this season. Penn, 34, made the Pro Bowl last season and is entering his fourth year with Oakland, his last on his second two-year deal.

Raiders Safety Keith McGill to Need Surgery After Fracturing Foot on Saturday

Raiders safety Keith McGill suffered a Jones fracture on Saturday and will require foot surgey, Michael Gehlken of Las Vegas Review-Journal reports.

The exact timetable of his recovery will gain clarity after further evaluation, but it is possible he won’t be ready for Week 1. McGill is a core special teams contributor who was competing in camp for a rotational role in the secondary.

A Jones fracture relates to the foot’s fifth metatarsal.

McGill was on crutches after practice, his right foot in a protective boot.

He played 281 special-teams snaps in 2016, second-most among all returning players. The Raiders already were facing significant turnover in that department. Of the seven players who appeared in at least 240 special-teams snaps last year, only fullback Jamize Olawale and McGill are still on the 90-man roster.

Raiders first-round pick Gareon Conley will not be charged in connection to a rape allegation made against him in April, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Michael C. O’Malley, Cuyahoga County Prosecutor, issued the following statement regarding the case:

After a thorough investigation by the Cleveland Police Department, the facts and circumstances surrounding the allegations of sexual assault against Gareon Conley were presented to a Cuyahoga County Grand Jury. The Grand Jury returned a No Bill on all possible charges.

“He is vindicated. He looks forward to contributing in the National Football League,” Conley’s attorney, Kevin Spellacy, told Rapoport on Monday.

Conley, 22, had vehemently denied the allegations. He told Cleveland police in May he had a consensual sexual encounter with the woman who accused him of rape and denied assaulting her, Spellacy told Rapoport.

BleacherReport

The Raiders have released running back Taiwan Jones, a player who has had only 44 carries in his six years with the club.

Jones was mostly known for beinga special teams player, but last season didn’t even get that much playing time on special teams.

Overall he returned 26 kicks for the Raiders in 2013 and 31 kicks in 2015. Last year, he did just eight kick returns with a lackluster 14.0 yards per attempt average.

He was selected in the fourth round of the 2011 draft. The team had him switch to cornerback for a time, but he was moved back to running back for the 2015 season.
