Facyson (shin) is active for Monday's game against the Chiefs.

The cornerback was questionable after being activated from injured reserve Saturday, but he was a full participant in practice all week. Facyson has not yet played this season after injuring his shin during the preseason and being placed on injured reserve Sept. 8. The sixth-year pro should enter Monday's game as a depth cornerback.

Activated from IR

Facyson (shin) was activated from the Raiders' injured reserve and is questionable for Monday's game against the Chiefs.

Facyson sustained a shin injury during the preseason and was placed on the Raiders' injured reserve list Sept. 8. He was designated to return from IR on Dec. 6 and has a chance to make his 2023 debut on Christmas Day.

Facyson (shin) was designated to return from injured reserve and he was a limited participant at the Raiders' practice Wednesday.

Facyson has been out the entire season so far while nursing a shin injury and the team will now have a 21-day window to add him to the active roster or revert him to IR for the remainder of the year. The cornerback appeared in 16 contests with the Colts in 2023, recording 28 tackles and six pass deflections.

The Raiders placed Facyson (shin) on injured reserve Friday.

The veteran corner has been dealing with this shin injury for over a month, as he was carted off the field during training camp on Aug. 1. Facyson agreed to terms with Las Vegas this offseason after spending 2022 with Indianapolis. The 29-year-old will now be forced to miss at least the first four games of the coming season.

Will sit out at Denver

Facyson (shin) is listed as out Friday for Sunday's game at the Broncos, Paul Gutierrez of reports.

After missing practice Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, Facyson being ruled out for Week 1 doesn't come as much of a surprise. Until he's ready to play again, fourth-round rookie Jakorian Bennett could be in line for more snaps than he would have been otherwise.

Sidelined Sunday

Facyson (leg) is not in uniform for Sunday's contest with the 49ers, Tashan Reed of The Athletic reports.

Facyson is dealing with a leg injury he suffered Aug. 2, which will force him to miss the Raiders' first preseason game. The cornerback returned to Las Vegas this offseason after spending the 2022 campaign with the Colts and once healthy, he appears set to be a top reserve option behind Nate Hobbs and Marcus Peters.

Injury likely not serious

Facyson (leg) did not practice Wednesday, Mark Anderson of reports.

Facyson had to be carted off the field Tuesday, and although he was unable to return for practice Wednesday, the injury is not believed to be serious. Head coach Josh McDaniels added, "I don't think it's going to be too long-term." Facyson spent last season with the Colts, after being a Raider for the 2021 campaign, compiling 28 tackles and six passes defended. He'll return to trying to earn a depth role in the Las Vegas secondary once he's fully recovered.

Carted off during camp

Facyson (leg) was carted off during Raiders practice Tuesday after suffering an apparent leg injury, Adam Hill of the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports.

Facyson was standing out at camp before suffering this leg injury, but head coach Josh McDaniels doesn't believe he'll be out for a long period of time. He told reporters Wednesday that there's no update on the veteran cornerback's injury, but "it won't be too long term." Once he returns to full health, expect the 28-year-old to serve as a rotational corner for the Raiders ahead of the coming season.

Heading to Las Vegas

Facyson and the Raiders agreed to terms on a contract Monday, Vincent Bonsignore of the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports.

Facyson played in a rotational role at cornerback for the Colts last season, recording 28 tackles (26 solo) over the course of 16 games. Coming to Las Vegas, its likely the 28-year-old will continue to serve as a depth option as a member of the Raiders' defensive backfield.
