Lynch (shoulder) remained limited at practice Thursday.
We'd expect Lynch to be a go for Sunday's game against the Dolphins, a notion that would be confirmed by his return to a full practice Friday and subsequent removal from the Raiders' Week 3 injury report.

Lynch (shoulder) was a limited practice participant Wednesday, Matt Kawahara of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Lynch was also listed with a shoulder injury last week, managing a limited practice Wednesday before upgrading to full participation Thursday and Friday. There isn't any reason to believe he's in danger of missing Sunday's game in Miami.

Lynch rushed 18 times for 65 yards and a touchdown and added three yards on two receptions in Sunday's 20-19 loss to Denver.
Lynch plunged into the end zone for a one-yard score to give Oakland a 12-0 lead just before halftime. His twenty touches are an excellent sign after the 32-year-old battled illness in Week 1 and a subsequent shoulder injury leading up to the matchup with Denver. The Cal product also saw two-thirds of the carries as Doug Martin and Jalen Richard rushed just nine times combined. Lynch will continue to be the Raiders' bellcow Week 3 at Miami.

Lynch (shoulder) practiced in a full capacity Thursday, Matt Schneidman of The San Jose Mercury News reports.
For the second week in a row, Lynch was included on the injury report. Sandwiched between those appearances, he came down with an illness during Monday's loss to the Rams. It's been an interesting run of the health, or lack thereof, for Lynch, but he's set for a Week 2 divisional matchup in Denver this Sunday. However, it's unclear if he'll retake his spot at the top of the Raiders' running back heap after Jalen Richard ran for 79 yards from scrimmage on 14 touches in the regular-season opener.

Lynch (shoulder) is listed as a limited participant on Wednesday's injury report, Matt Schneidman of The San Jose Mercury News reports.
Lynch reportedly felt ill during Monday's 33-13 loss to the Rams, perhaps explaining why he only took 11 carries, though a large deficit after halftime was probably the larger factor. He's now dealing with a shoulder injury as the Raiders begin preparation for Sunday's game in Denver. Lynch's ability to participate in any capacity suggests he's on track to play, but it will at least be worth monitoring when the Thursday and Friday injury reports are released.

Raiders head coach Jon Gruden said that Lynch "had a little bout of sickness" after the team's initial offensive drive in Monday's 33-13 loss to the Rams, Paul Gutierrez of ESPN.com reports.
The unspecified illness at least partially explains why Lynch handled only 11 carries in the season opener, less than half of the team's total of 23. Assuming he makes a full recovery from the ailment, Lynch will most likely take on a larger portion of the backfield workload in Week 2 against the Broncos, but due to the limited time off between games, it wouldn't be surprising if his practice reps were managed carefully early in the week.

Although Lynch (groin) was limited at Saturday's practice, he is absent from the injury report heading into Monday's season opener against the Rams, Matt Kawahara of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Lynch's limited role at Saturday's practice is likely the result of the Raiders looking to ensure he is at full strength come Monday night. His matchup against the Rams' rugged defensive line does not figure to be advantageous, but he is expected to see a healthy workload assuming he avoids any setbacks.

Lynch (groin) remained limited at practice Friday.
While a groin issue is cited on the Raiders' injury report, Paul Gutierrez of ESPN.com noted Thursday that Lynch "has been practicing of late while wearing a resistance band around his quads." That the veteran running back has practiced both Thursday and Friday suggests that he'll tough things out in Week1 , but it's possible that he could go into Monday's game against the Rams carrying a "questionable" injury tag. In the event that Lynch is cleared Saturday or suits up Monday despite an injury designation, he's looking at pretty rugged matchup, given quality of Los Angeles' defensive line. With DeAndre Washington dealing with a knee injury, Oakland's healthiest running backs at the moment are Doug Martin and Jalen Richard.

Lynch was limited in Thursday's practice due to a groin injury, Matt Schneidman of The San Jose Mercury News reports.
Like he did for most of his time in Seattle, Lynch avoided the injury report in his return to football last season, so an appearance Week 1 this year is curious considering he logged four offensive snaps during the preseason. On positive notes, he was able to practice in some capacity Thursday and has two more chances to elevate to a full participant. With Doug Martin in the fold and Jalen Richard available, it remains to be seen if Lynch will uphold his standard of 15.1 touches per game from 2017.

Lynch drew the start during last Friday's preseason win over the Packers, but logged just two offensive snaps and didn't record a touch.
The 32-year-old running back's limited preseason workload shouldn't be a cause for concern, as the Raiders don't have any reason to force him through essentially insignificant reps at this stage of his career. Lynch remains slated to lead Oakland's backfield Week 1, but the team's final preseason game Thursday against the Seahawks involves the last chance for Jalen Richard, DeAndre Washington (knee), and Chris Warren to battle for a roster spot given Doug Martin also makes the squad.
