Held out of minicamp Drake (ankle) didn't practice during June minicamp, Vic Tafur of The Athletic reports.
Impact Drake broke his ankle in early December and had surgery a few days later, finishing with 545 total yards over 12 games in the first season of a two-year, $11 million contract with the Raiders. It's unclear if he'll have a role under the new coaching staff led by Josh McDaniels, but an injury guarantee on his 2022 base salary means Las Vegas doesn't have a financial motive to release the 28-year-old running back, incentivizing them to at least give him another look once he's available for practice. It remains to be seen if Drake will be ready for the start of training camp in late July. Josh Jacobs (undisclosed) also missed minicamp, either with a minor injury or as a precaution against one, leaving Brandon Bolden, Ameer Abdullah and rookie fourth-round pick Zamir White as the top RBs.
