Mariota, who has not played since a quadriceps injury in Week 1, has been activated but his status to play is uncertain with Derek Carr entrenched as the starting quarterback for the Las Vegas Raiders. The Raiders will take on the Broncos at 10:30 a.m. HST in their first game without head coach Jon Gruden, who resigned due to a series of offensive emails made public.

The Dolpins are currently 1-4, while the Raiders are 3-2.
