Las Vegas Raiders cornerback Nate Hobbs has been designated to return from injured reserve.

Nate Hobbs was placed on the IR after he broke a bone in his hand during the Week 5 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs.

During Wednesday’s press conference, coach Josh McDaniels said Hobbs would “be back working today” and the team will determine later this week whether or not to active Hobbs.

Teams have 21 days to activate a player from IR. If the player does not return by the end of the 21-day window, that player returns to IR.

Before the injury, Hobbs logged 110 tackles, two sacks, two forced fumbles and one interception.
