On Friday, the Oakland Raiders announced they'd be releasing Hard Knocks standout Luke Willson. Not even 24 hours later, the team announced they'll be letting go another key member from HBO's show.

The next member of the Raiders that will not make their 53-man roster is Keelan Doss.

Doss is an undrafted rookie wide receiver from UC Davis. He quickly impressed the coaching staff in the preseason, totaling 17 receptions for 162 yards and one touchdown.

Unfortunately for Doss, the Raiders have so much depth at wideout that he wasn't able to crack the Week 1 roster. NFL Network insider Mike Garafolo broke the news that he'll be waived by the team.

It's likely that Hard Knocks will air the moment where Doss learns about his fate, which could be heartbreaking for those watching.

Doss could return to Oakland's practice squad if he clears waivers.

Considering that Doss had a strong preseason and is only 23 years old, the former UC Davis star should garner interest from other teams on the waiver wire.

As for the Raiders, it's becoming clear that Antonio Brown, Tyrell Williams and Hunter Renfrow will anchor their receiving corps.

Expect Oakland to make a few more tough decisions this afternoon as teams have to cut their rosters down in time for the regular season.
