02/16/17DLKhalil MackBackQUESTIONABLEMack didn't play in the Pro Bowl due to a minor back concern, CSN Bay Area reports.

The specifics of Mack's back injury weren't revealed, but it doesn't sound as if it will hold him down for long. Look for the reigning Defensive Player of the Year to be ready to go for the start of offseason workouts in April.

01/31/17LBBen HeeneyAnkleQUESTIONABLEHeeney, who was placed on injured reserve in October due to a torn ligament in his right ankle, expects to be healthy for the Raiders' offseason program, Jimmy Durkin of The Mercury News reports.

Heeney is coming up on 13 weeks since having surgery and is about three weeks from being able to do contact work. He recorded 15 tackles in only four games for the Raiders in 2016, so his return to action should give a boost to Oakland's front seven.

01/26/17LBNeiron BallUndisclosedQUESTIONABLEBall was on injured reserve for the duration of the 2016 season due to an undisclosed injury.

Ball was placed on IR after clearing waivers back in August. He's now ended his first two years in the league on IR and he'll be looking to stay healthy and make an impact for the Raiders in 2017.

01/26/17DLShilique CalhounKneeQUESTIONABLECalhoun (knee) was placed on injured reserve Friday, ESPN's Adam Caplan reports.

Calhoun hadn't played since Week 11 versus the Texans due to an issue with one of his knees. He went under the knife this week to fix whatever's been bothering him and will hope to be back in time for the start of start of the 2017 campaign.

01/26/17QBDerek CarrLower LegQUESTIONABLEHead coach Jack Del Rio said Carr (fibula) is either on track or ahead of schedule in his rehab process, CSN Bay Area reports. "He's doing well," Del Rio said. "We still have a couple months before we crank it up. He's in good spirits and everything that I've seen and heard is that he's on track, or maybe even ahead of schedule. We expect a complete recovery, and for him to have no issues."

Del Rio's comments support the recent assessments provided by Raiders left tackle Donald Penn and Carr's brother (former NFL QB David Carr). The Raiders' signal-caller hopes to be a full participant in OTAs, but he did acknowledge that it wouldn't be smart to push the issue at such an early stage of the offseason. Even if he does miss some of the offseason program, Carr figures to be back at full strength before the start of training camp.

01/26/17DBSaQwan EdwardsUndisclosedQUESTIONABLEEdwards spent the 2016 season on injured reserve after suffering an undisclosed injury.

Edwards was placed on IR after clearing waivers back in August. He had joined Oakland as an undrafted rookie in 2016 and he'll look to stay healthy and make the roster as a depth secondary and special teams player in 2017.

01/26/17DBD.J. HaydenHamstringQUESTIONABLEHayden (hamstring) signed a one-year, $5.25 million contract with the Lions on Friday, Dave Birkett of The Detroit Press reports.

The 12th overall pick in the 2013 NFL draft, Hayden never lived up to the hype during his four seasons in Oakland. He ended the 2016 campaign with 37 tackles, six pass deflections and one forced fumble through 11 games. His season ended in late November after he suffered a hamstring injury, forcing the Raiders to place him on injured reserve. Once healthy, Hayden will compete for the starting nickelback position, an area the Lions struggled with throughout last season.

01/26/17TEGabe HolmesAnkleQUESTIONABLEHolmes (ankle) was tendered to a one-year contract by the Raiders, Scott Blair of CSN Bay Area reports.

Holmes spent his first season in the league mostly on the practice squad and then wound up on injured reserve last year due to an ankle injury he suffered in training camp. Once healthy, the tight end will compete for a spot on the 53-man roster for the upcoming season.

01/26/17TELee SmithAnkleQUESTIONABLESmith (ankle) expects to be healthy in time for the Raiders' offseason program, Jimmy Durkin of The Mercury News reports.

Smith suffered a season-ending ankle injury in Week 4 and was later placed on injured reserve. He is arguably the Raiders' best blocking tight end and provides a boost to the running game when healthy. On the other hand, Smith amassed only six catches in four games before being injured, a sign that he is not a fantasy producer in Oakland's high-powered offense.

01/19/17DBSean SmithShoulderQUESTIONABLESmith underwent surgery on his shoulder, Vic Tafur of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Smith played through his shoulder injury late in the 2016 season but it turned out he was unable to make a full recovery without surgery. He's expected to be healthy and able to participate by the time offseason practices begin.

01/07/17LBMalcolm SmithHamstringQUESTIONABLESmith (hamstring) signed a five-year, $26.5 million contract with the 49ers on Thursday, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.

Smith's contract includes $13 million in guaranteed money. He led the Raiders with 103 tackles last season, and added an interception and two forced fumbles. The seventh-year linebacker has had some problems in pass coverage, but will still be a major boost to a run defense that was atrocious in 2016. The 49ers surrendered a whopping 165.9 rushing yards per game last season, good for dead last in the NFL.

12/09/16LBAldon SmithSuspensionSUSPENDSmith (suspension) will be reinstated in March barring any further issues with substance abuse, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports.

Smith remains subject to the league's drug program, but will be reinstated given he stays on the right path throughout the coming months. He'll certainly add another pass-rushing presence for the Raiders' defense, while defensive end Khalil Mack was recently named 2016's defensive player of the year.
