01:24 PM ET 08.06 | Wearing the red, no-contact jersey throughout training camp, the status of Raiders' first-round draft pick D.J. Hayden has been one of the most discussed storylines out of Napa this summer. Dennis Allen confirmed with the media that Hayden would appear at some juncture of the preseason as a guarantee, but up until Monday there was no official word on whether that would be Week One against Dallas or at a late point of the preseason schedule. Now it is confirmed that Raider fans will have to wait a little while longer to see a player who has the potential to be the cornerstone of the Raiders defense for years to come. There was a bit of a scare with Hayden Monday at practice when the corner came up lame in no contact coverage drills. He was taken out of drills to work with a trainer but returned minutes later when the team went into team sessions.
