AFC Notes: Raiders, Steelers, Texans


Raiders HC Jon Gruden says he’s hoping to bring LT Donald Penn back from injured reserve before the end of the season.

“He has been downstairs rehabbing and we are hoping he can come back and help us,” Gruden said, via Scott Bair of NBC Bay Area. “I don’t know how close he is officially, but he is making progress. Hope to have him on the field before the season is over.
