Carroll was particularly optimistic about the possible return of Carpenter, who looked good working with the trainers before the game. “The guys were all fired up about him,” Carroll said. “He got out there, and he was just thrilled to be in the uniform for game day.

First Down/Fourth Down: D.J. Hayden was Friday’s best story | Audibles -
It’s all well and good to say that preseason games don’t mean a lot, but don’t tell that to Oakland Raiders rookie cornerback D.J. Hayden. Less than a year after suffering a tear in his internal vena cava (the primary vein to his heart) in practice and nearly dying as a result, Hayden was on an NFL field for the first time. It was my belief that the Houston product was the best pure cover cornerback in this draft class, and when he ran a 4.33-second 40-yard dash at his pro day in March, the NFL was ready to believe again. The Raiders took him with the 12th overall pick in the 2013 draft, and waited while he underwent surgery in May to deal with scar tissue in his abdomen — this was related to the emergency heart surgery that had saved his life.
