The Oakland Raiders made three roster designations Monday, just three days before training camp is slated to begin in Napa, Calif.
General manager Reggie McKenzie placed running back Roy Helu, Jr. and defensive end Greg Townsend, Jr. on the physically unable to perform list. They also placed rookie guard and 7th round pick Vadal Alexander on the non-football injury list.
The fact that rookie safety Karl Joseph is not listed on the PUP or the NFI is good news as he continues to recover from the torn ACL that he suffered during his final season at West Virginia.
Another notable name not on either list is second-year tight end Clive Walford who has not been a full-participant this offseason due to an ATV injury during the offseason.
All players report to training camp on Thursday, with the first practice happening Friday morning.
