    In our annual pick-by-pick series where we draft from a specific spot in the first round, picking ninth might mean missing on top-3 talent at RB and WR, but two of the top 16 overall isn't so bad.

    08/23/16RBAlfred BlueShoulderQUESTIONABLEBlue (shoulder) returned to practice Monday and is expected to play in Sunday's preseason game against the Cardinals.

    Although he missed the first two preseason games, Blue was healthy for the first two weeks of training camp, getting plenty of reps along the way. While not much of a pass-catching threat, Blue is a clear favorite to serve as Lamar Miller's top backup for early downs. Jonathan Grimes handled a lot of the passing-down work last year, but he may need to fend off 2015 seventh-rounder Kenny Hilliard in a competition for a roster spot, as rookie fourth-rounder Tyler Ervin is a lock to make the team even if he doesn't earn much of a role.

    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 (knee) is expected to play and see time with the starting offense in the Raiders' third preseason game Saturday against the Titans, Scott Bair of CSNBayArea.com reports.

    Richard flashed during the onset of training camp, but had been slowed by a knee injury until returning to practice earlier this week. However, none of Taiwan Jones, DeAndre Washington nor George Atkinson have laid claim to the No. 2 or No. 3 jobs yet.

    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.
