According to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network,  Raiders rookie cornerback D.J. Hayden has been cleared for contact.

The Raiders took a gamble by drafting Hayden in the first round of this year’s draft after he almost died during a University of Houston football practice last season after colliding  with a teammate.

Hayden had to undergo offseason surgery to deal with a complication that occurred due to the life-saving surgery he underwent last year.
