Per ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter, Khalil Mack will not report to the team before its second preseason game Saturday, per source, meaning he will be fined another $814,000, bringing his two missed preseason game total to $1.628 million. More important for both sides: there is no end in sight, per source.

How's this for a training camp farewell gift...Jon Gruden gave the Raiders the day off from practice to close out camp on Thursday, after 21 days in wine country. Oakland faces the Rams Saturday at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, which the Raiders called home from 1982 through 1994.

Raiders camp Day 20 rookie report: Linebacker Jason Cabinda is a darkhorse candidate to make the team's initial 53-man roster as an undrafted rookie out of Penn State. Cabinda has been solid in camp and has had some run with the first-team nickel defense. “He's right in the mix, said coach Jon Gruden. “Derrick Johnson and Marquel Lee are the one and two on the depth chart. Cabinda is what we thought he was. He's a complete middle linebacker. He can make all the calls. He is instinctive and tough. He plays physical. Special teams will have a big part.”

Raiders Camp Day 20 Play of the Day: Martavis Bryant took off down the left sideline in 7-on-7 drills with Gareon Conley on his hip. Derek Carr launched a deep ball and Bryant momentarily appeared to have a step, until Conley launched himself up, touching Brant on the helmet, to knock the ball away. And maybe, just maybe, coach Jon Gruden held his breath…until both players, who have lengthy injury histories, got up, shook themselves off, and ran back to their respective huddles. “You just have to hope for the best,” said coach Jon Gruden. “Our guys did a great job today and throughout camp maintaining a really good edict – taking care of each other, trying to avoid piles of bodies being on the ground…now that I think of it, I'm glad both of them got up.”

Raiders camp Day 20 Quote of the Day II comes from CB Gareon Conley, who returned to practice this week after suffering a hip strain on the first day of camp, when asked how close to being ready he was to playing in a game: “I'm ready.”

Raiders camp Day 20 Quote of the Day comes from coach Jon Gruden, when asked about WR Martavis Bryant re-emerging after missing two practices with migraines: “We're calling Martavis ‘The White Tiger.' I used to go to Busch Gardens in Tampa…you know you go to Busch Gardens, and they got a white tiger? You go 12 times, 13 times I went to Busch Gardens and the white tiger was always in his cage. Well, the white tiger came out today. Bryant came out. I don't know if you get that analogy but, sometimes he comes out to play, and sometimes he doesn't. And it's good to see him because he's really special, like the white tiger.” Gruden laughed.

Derek Carr hooks up with Amari Cooper on a simulated 4th down play with time running down. Yes, that is Gruden's voice with the countdown.

Indeed, WR Martavis Bryant is back at Raiders practice after missing the past two days with what was described as migraines. The Raiders are not padded up today and close out training camp in Napa on Thursday and play at the Rams on Saturday. It will be the Raiders' first game at the Los Angeles Coliseum since the 1994 season finale.

Raiders camp Day 19 Quote of the Day II comes from QB Derek Carr, on rookie RB Chris Warren getting some in-game inspiration during Friday's exhibition opener against Detroit: "Marshawn's mom called down to the sideline and gave him a pep talk and he played real well for us…he started to run physical as a rookie. You guys can ask Marshawn about that, if that's true or not. Make sure you guys bug him with that one. Next time you talk to him, make sure you ask him. She called him during the game. Love you, Mama Lynch."

Raiders camp Day 19 rookie report: Undrafted kicker Eddy Piñeiro continues to impress. In Tuesday's practice, he nailed five of his six field-goal attempts on the skinny goal post, just hooking wide left his lone miss, and converting one from 50 yards. He also ended practice with a 40-plus yarder.

Raiders Camp Day 19 Play of the Day: Connor Cook has been impressive in camp with his stinginess with the ball – he had only thrown one interception in camp, to Shaquille Richardson on Day 1. But linebacker Emmanuel Lamur got Cook on Tuesday in 11 on 11's. Dropping into coverage from the weakside, Lamur saw a receiver coming across the middle on a slant and jumped it, the ball hitting him in the chest and Lamur had the pick and was gone. Who was Lamur covering? Didn't matter to him. “I knew the route already,” he said. Oh, and the 6-foot 4, 245-pound Lamur also had an acrobatic INT of Lions QB Matthew Stafford in a joint practice last week. Lamur has two career picks in his five NFL season.

Raiders camp Day 19 Quote of the Day comes from quarterback Derek Carr, on his right guard: “Gabe Jackson is, for sure, probably the most underrated person in the NFL. Because of the other three, and their accolades, right? And now you have another first-round pick on the line, too, and poor Gabe is just left in the wind. But yes, we know how special he is, we know how important he is and I will say this, every time I see his ‘Madden' rating I get mad. Because it doesn't do him justice.” The ‘other three' Carr was referring to are Pro Bowl offensive linemen Donald Penn, Kelechi Osemele and Rodney Hudson, while Kolton Miller is the first-rounder.

Raiders' Penn activated off PUP, moved to RT

Three-time Pro Bowl left tackle Donald Penn was activated from the physically unable to perform list by the Raiders and moved to a new position -- right tackle.

Paul Gutierrez ESPN Staff Writer 

Donald Penn is dressed and ready to practice. A day after agreeing to a contract restructure, the three-time Pro Bowl left tackle has been activated off the PUP list. Interestingly enough, he was working at right tackle in pre-practice drills, with first-round draft pick Kolton Miller remaining at left tackle. Penn has played right tackle in a game once in his 11-year career, due to injuries to Menelik Watson and Vadal Alexander in the 2016 season opener at New Orleans. Per Pro Football Focus, Penn played 24 snaps at right tackle that day and did not allow a QB pressure in 18 pass-block snaps from the right side.

Reports: Raiders' Penn agrees to restructure deal

Three-time Pro Bowl left tackle Donald Penn has agreed to a restructured contract with the Raiders, according to multiple reports, after the team requested a pay cut less than a year after giving him a two-year, $21 million extension.

Raiders Camp Day 18 Injury Report: Receiver Martavis Bryant missed practice with what coach Jon Gruden called “a headache somewhere. He's in his room, he's got a headache and hopefully he gets well soon.” Right tackle Breno Giaccomini remains out with a knee injury while receiver Seth Roberts missed practice with an unknown ailment. Second-year safety Obi Melifonwu is “still being evaluated” and left tackle Donald Penn's situation is “an ongoing process.” Defensive back Marcus Gilchrist also sat out. Gruden said he hoped to have Gareon Conley and defensive end Arden Key, both of whom practiced on Monday, suit up in Saturday's exhibition at the Rams, as well as third-round draft pick Brandon Parker at right tackle.
