    08/14/16DLMario EdwardsHipQUESTIONABLEEdwards (hip) will not need surgery on his sprained hip, Scott Bair of CSN California reports.

    Edwards injured his hip while tackling Cardinals' running back David Johnson during Thursday's preseason contest. Edwards was given a four-to-six week timetable, but it was questionable if he needed surgery or not. Now that it's clear he just needs time and not surgery, he'll likely be able to return sooner than he otherwise would've, though his status for the regular season opener is still in question.

    08/14/16TEGabe HolmesAnkleDOUBTFULThe Raiders placed Holmes (ankle) on the IR Tuesday, Jimmy Durkin of the Bay Area News Group reports.

    Holmes suffered a severe high ankle sprain in Monday's practice, which has resulted in his placement on the IR. Holmes projected to be the fourth tight end on the team's depth chart this season.

    08/14/16RBJalen RichardKneeQUESTIONABLERichard rushed seven times for 35 yards and caught two passes for seven yards in Saturday's preseason game against the Titans.

    Richard got a couple of carries with the Raiders' starting offense, but managed only four yards from those touches. Instead, most his production came after half time, particularly on Oakland's opening second half series. Starting quarterback Derek Carr was still in the game at that point, which is encouraging for Richard, as is the fact that fellow rookie DeAndre Washington had a fumble returned for a touchdown to end that drive. While Washington was otherwise impressive, his error, along with Richard's solid production, keeps Richard in the mix for backup touches behind Latavius Murray going forward.

    07/11/16LBAldon SmithSuspensionSUSPENDSmith (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.

    04/27/16RBMarcel ReeceSuspensionSUSPENDReece has been suspended four games for violating the NFL's policy on performance enhancing drugs, CSN Bay Area reports.

    Reece, who will sit out Sunday's season finale against the Chiefs, is thus eligible to return to action after the Raiders' third game of the 2016 season. In the meantime, he can participate in all of the team's offseason and preseason practices and games.

    07/30/16WRCordarrelle PattersonShoulderPROBABLEPatterson had two receptions for 17 yards in Thursday's preseason win over Seattle. He missed Minnesota's first preseason game with a shoulder injury.

    Patterson got time with the first-team offense and got to passes in the flat where he was able to use his speed to miss tackles. It was an encouraging sign that he could have a few plays a game designed for him on offense. However, his playing time is likely to be minimal on offense this season as he'll likely see almost all his action as a kick returner.

    07/29/16QBTaylor HeinickeFootNFIHeinicke (ankle) has shed the walking boot he wore to protect his foot from further injury, Scout.com reports.

    Heinicke declined to talk about his injury after practice, reportedly saying it was time to go lift weights. If those were indeed his plans, his foot may be further along than anticipated. However, Shaun Hill has done nothing to relinquish his role as the backup to starter Teddy Bridgewater, and the Vikings project to carry only two quarterbacks on their active roster entering the regular season. Ultimately, Heinicke appears destined for either the practice squad or injured reserve list in 2016.
