Murray (toe) is listed as questionable ahead of Sunday's game against the Jaguars, but he is expected to play, CSN Bay Area's Scott Bair reports.
Murray has missed Oakland's last two tilts due to turf toe, and although he was limited during practice this week, he's still slated to suit up Sunday. While the Raiders have frustrated fantasy owners with their mixture of running backs lately, Murray still leads the team with 43 rushing yards per game and three touchdowns on the ground. In fact, prior to his disappointing Week 4 performance, Murray scored in each of Oakland's first three contests.
The Raiders' offensive line took a big hit Sunday, when starting right tackle Menelik Watsonruptured his Achilles tendon in the first half. He will miss the entire 2015 season, per the San Francisco Chronicle.
Smith (suspension) has entered a treatment center, ESPN reports.
Smith's reason for seeking treatment is unclear, but it comes just days after a Periscope video titled "Fire up session" surfaced of an unidentified man, suspected to be him, talking about a hand-rolled cigarette shown on screen. In wake of that video, which appeared under an account previously used by Smith, the NFL has launched an investigation into whether he violated protocols required of a suspended player seeking reinstatement from a substance abuse violation. While that investigation continues, Smith's move to now enter a treatment facility hardly seems coincidental, and more details regarding his situation should surface soon.
Though Charles is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Saints, coach Andy Reid downplayed the running back's knee issue Friday, BJ Kissel of Chiefs.com reports. "Jamaal was limited today," Reid noted Friday, while adding that the running back's knee "had a little bit of swelling in it (on Thursday) and we were just taking it down for today. We think everything will be alright as we go."
While Reid's words offer encouragement that Charles could give it a go in Sunday's 1:00 ET kickoff, that shouldn't be considered a lock. Moreover, with a knee that is still acting up, even if Charles does play this week it's hard to imagine him overtaking fellow RB Spencer Ware in the snaps/carries department in Week 7.
