    05/18/16RBJamaal CharlesKneeQUESTIONABLECharles (knee) will take part in individual drills at Tuesday's minicamp practice, BJ Kissel of the Chiefs' official site reports.

    Charles has been present at offseason practices for rehab and off-field work for the past few weeks, but he's yet to make an on-field appearance alongside his teammates. Tuesday thus marks a significant step in his recovery from the torn ACL suffered in Week 5 last year, with all reports to date suggesting that Charles is on/ahead of schedule. There is some thought that Charles, even if he returns to full health, might lose touches to Spencer Ware and Charcandrick West, who formed an effective duo in the superstar's absence last season. Prior to the injury, Charles was handling a huge workload while playing the vast majority of offensive snaps; he had 71 carries, 21 receptions, 541 scrimmage yards and five touchdowns in just 4.5 games.

    04/27/16LBJustin HoustonKneeQUESTIONABLEHouston (knee) won't be ready for the start of next month's training camp, ESPN.com reports.

    The Chiefs still do not have a concrete timetable outlined for Houston, who underwent ACL surgery in February, though GM John Dorsey maintains that the linebacker will play for the team at some point this coming season. With that in mind, Dorsey noted of Houston, "I don't know how much he's going to do in camp. But, listen, he's where he needs to be right now and he's a hard worker. He's bound and determined to get back. We'll just see how it works out. There is no timetable. It's just when he's right, he's right and we'll roll." Houston, who racked up 22 sacks in 2014, is coming off a 2015 campaign in which he recorded 30 tackles and 7.5 sacks in 11 games.

    05/03/16TEClive WalfordKnee Walford (knee) will likely be cleared before training camp, ESPN's Adam Caplan reports.

    Walford is sitting out the first round of OTAs after injuring his knee in an offseason ATV accident. He may miss out on a few reps, but he should still have every opportunity to push for an increased role, likely at the expense of Mychal Rivera. The 2015 third-rounder caught 28 passes for 329 yards and three scores on 51 targets as a rookie; Rivera had 32 receptions for 280 yards and a touchdown on 46 targets.

    04/27/16LBNeiron BallKneePROBABLEBall (knee) is "doing everything" and expected to be "ready to roll" for the offseason program by Raiders' GM Reggie McKenzie.

    Ball emerged in Week 5 of last season by holding Denver TE Owen Daniels without a catch on five targets. The performance earned him his first career start versus San Diego in Week 6, but shortly into the game he suffered a knee sprain and was ruled out by halftime. Ball will serve as depth for an imposing Raiders' outside linebacking corps in 2016 behind Khalil Mack, Bruce Irvin, Malcolm Smith and perhaps Aldon Smith (suspension), should he return in November.

    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.

    04/08/16LBAldon SmithSuspension The Raiders and Smith (suspension) agreed to a two-year contract Monday, the team's official site reports.

    In the midst of a one-year suspension for another violation of the NFL's policy for substances of abuse, Smith will remain where he spent the first nine games of the 2015 season, when he contributed 3.5 sacks among 28 tackles to the Raiders' pass rush. It remains to be seen whether he'll be strictly contained to a one-year ban, as the commissioner's office has been known to do their due diligence once a suspended player applies for reinstatement. Depending on further adjustments made to the defense in the offseason, free-agent addition Bruce Irvin appears set to man strongside linebacker in the meantime.
