Raiders | Derek Hagan will have to earn playing time

Despite leading the team in receiving yardage during the preseason, Oakland Raiders WR Derek Hagan was inactive for Week 1. Head coach Hue Jackson said Hagan will have to earn playing time. "What he did in the preseason gave him an opportunity to be on this football team," Jackson said. "It did not make him the starting receiver on this football team. So, let's make sure we understand where I was with Hagan ... Performance is what matters, and that's what got him on the team. That's where it starts first. Then, he has to continue to perform and beat some of these guys out and then he'll play."
