So much has understandably been made about the email controversy regarding Jon Gruden, who resigned as head coach of the Las Vegas Raiders on Monday night, that some may have forgotten Gruden and company likely violated NFL rules about teams reporting injuries last month.  

Raiders backup quarterback Marcus Mariota aggravated a previous quadriceps issue in the team's Week 1 overtime win over the Baltimore Ravens and has been out of action since. As Charean Williams noted for Pro Football Talk, the Raiders designated Mariota to return from injured reserve Wednesday ahead of Sunday's matchup at the Denver Broncos that will feature a pair of 3-2 clubs facing off less than a full week after Gruden stepped down.
