02/16/17DLKhalil MackBackQUESTIONABLEMack (back) had the fifth-year option of his contract exercised by the Raiders on Thursday, Peter Schrager of FoxSports.com reports.

This move by the Raiders' front office comes as no surprise, securing Mack as a key focus on the defensive side of the ball through the 2018 season. Although Mack is currently slated to become an unrestricted free agent in 2019, the Raiders now have additional time to work out a long-term deal with the reigning Defensive Player of the Year.

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 LegQUESTIONABLECarr (fibula) and the Raiders have finalized a five-year, $125 million extension,NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports.

The average annual value of $25 million in new money narrowly tops Andrew Luck's $24.6 million to set a new NFL record, though Matt Stafford and Kirk Cousins will both push for similar contracts in the coming weeks. Carr was limited throughout the Raiders' offseason program while recovering from a broken fibula suffered in Week 16, but he should be a full participant at the start of training camp as he looks to build on a strong 2016 campaign. He'll benefit from one of the league's best supporting casts, with RB Marshawn Lynch and TE Jared Cook joining a unit that already boasts an elite offensive line and wideout duo. Given the new contract and the talent surrounding him, Carr will be expected to improve upon last season's mark of 7.0 yards per pass attempt. His completion percentage (63.8) and TD:INT ratio (28:6) were impressive, but he'll need to have more success throwing downfield to be mentioned among the league's elite quarterbacks when the discussion moves beyond salary.

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.

01/26/17TELee 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.
