Raiders-Browns Injury Report: P.J. Hall Back at Work After Two Weeks Away

ALAMEDA -- The Raiders' defensive line finally got some positive injury news Wednesday when P.J. Hall was cleared to resume practice.

The rookie defensive tackle and second-round draft pick missed two weeks after spraining an ankle in the season-opening loss to the Los Angeles Rams. His loss, plus Justin Ellis being placed on injured reserve, left the Raiders precariously thin at defensive tackle.

The Silver and Black signed veterans Clinton McDonald and Johnathan Hankins to fill voids, but Hall will be a welcome presence rushing the passer if he can play Sunday against the Cleveland Browns.

There is confidence that right tackle Donald Penn can go Sunday despite being evaluated for concussion-like symptoms. He was active in Wednesday's practice, a sign that he has advanced a solid distance in the league's concussion protocol at the least.

Safety Karl Joseph didn't practice, though that was expected. Raiders coach Jon Gruden said Joseph will miss a game at least.

Also, kicker Mike Nugent was placed on injured reserve with a hip injury. That decision made room for new kicker Matt McCrane on the 53-man roster.
