On the Monday after the team’s win in Indianapolis to stay in the playoff chase, the team got a rude awakening. Standout rookie cornerback Nate Hobbs was arrested at around 4 am Monday morning on DUI charges. The negative implications for the team — which has already seen two other players charged with DUI this year alone — there were questions as to whether Hobbs would be immediately available as the Raiders head into their crucial season finale against the Chargers.

Interim Head Coach Rich Bisaccia says Hobbs is in line to play in the game.

“As far as Nate Hobbs is concerned obviously we take that extremely serious organizationally and certainly within our team,” Bisaccia led out with. “Based on what we’ve learned, at this time we expect Nate to play. It’s a legal matter. Other than that I have nothing else. We’ll leave it at that.”

It can be tough to secure convictions for DUI and clearly the Raiders are in a wait-and-see approach in that regard. While the case plays out, or if and until the league steps in, Hobbs will continue to play.
