The Las Vegas Raiders continue to regain their health as they activated backup quarterback Marcus Mariota from the injured reserve on Tuesday.
Mariota spent 43 days on the injured reserve. He was surprisingly put on the IR with a pec injury six days before the start of the season. Mariota still may not be the backup this coming Sunday when the Raiders host the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, however.
Nathan Peterman has backed up starter Derek Carr all season and last week, when asked about Mariota’s timeline to return, Jon Gruden brought up Peterman and heaped praise on him.
