Raiders place DT Neil Farrell Jr on Non-Football Injury list

Among those not in attendance for the first day of Raiders training camp was defensive tackle Neil Farrell Jr.

The second-year lineman joins rookie first round pick defensive end Tyree Wilson on the NFI. While rookie DT Byron Young starts camp on the Physically Unable to Perform (PUP) list.

Farrell appeared in nine games last season as a fourth round pick out of LSU. In those appearances he combined for 12 tackles and two QB hits.

With two DTs sidelined, players like second-year DT Matthew Butler, rookie seventh round pick Nesta Jade-Silvera, and newly re-signed Kyle Peko to move up the depth chart.

There are no surefire starting DTs on this team, making for somewhat of an open competition at the position. The projected starting rotation as of now is Bilal Nichols, John Jenkins, and Jerry Tillery.

If Neil Farrell hopes to make a jump in his second season, he will need to return to the practice field soon.
