Position Listing
Rodney Hudson
News
Raiders center Rodney Hudson has to live up to a lot of hype. He signed a five-year, $44.5 million contract with the team this offseason so all eyes are on him.

So far during organized team activities, Hudson has impressed his coaches and teammates, per CSNbayarea.com.

“Rodney’s done a terrific job. He’s been more than what we anticipated,” offensive coordinator Bill Musgrave said. “He has better movement than I think we expected from our film study and from watching from the other sideline. He’s done a great job of pulling. Guards and tackles pull a bunch in our system, but the center needs to at times, and he’s able to do that.”

Hudson, a second-round pick in 2011, has instilled confidence in his teammates by how he's performed throughout practice thus far.

Watching him out here, I am like, ‘Oh, you’re worth every penny you got.’ He is a very good penny, so I am looking forward to it," left tackle Donald Penn said. "He is going to man that middle and we’re going to follow his lead.”

Lee Smith
News
Smith (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.

Injury
Ankle - Questionable for the start of training camp
Reggie Nelson
News
Nelson racked up five tackles (five solo) during Saturday's wild-card loss to the Texans.

Nelson hadn't reached the five-tackle mark in the Raiders' previous four contests, but he was able to due so in Oakland's first and only game of the playoffs.

Jalen Richard
News
Richard rushed three times for three yards and caught both of his targets for 8 yards during the Raiders' 27-14 postseason loss to the Texans on Saturday.

Not only did Richard see less carries than both Latavius Murray and DeAndre Washington, he was also the least effective with his opportunities on a per-touch basis. He performed well on special teams, though, breaking off a 37-yard kickoff return at one point and averaging 19.0 yards per opportunity on punts. With Murray set to be a free agent in the offseason, Richard is now set to enter the offseason with a chance to become a bigger part of the Raiders' weekly offensive game plan in 2017.

Mario Edwards
News
Edwards (illness) is active for Saturday's game against the Texans.

Edwards was a late addition to Oakland's injury report Saturday. He played through illness in Week 17 and he'll do so once again after practicing fully throughout the week. He may be limited slightly but, since he's little more than a depth pass rusher, his limitations shouldn't impact the defense greatly.

Latavius Murray
News
Murray rushed 12 times for 39 yards and a touchdown while catching one of four targets for 12 yards in Oakland's 27-14 loss to Houston in their AFC wild-card round playoff game Saturday.

The Raiders took advantage of advantageous field position set up by a punt return late in the first quarter when Murray's two-yard TD scamper made it a 10-7 game. But Oakland, led by over-matched rookie quarterback Connor Cook, could not move consistently, fell behind by multiple scores and largely abandoned a running game that never got going against the league's top-ranked defense.

Khalil Mack
News
Mack 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.

Injury
Back - Questionable for the start of training camp
Antonio Hamilton
No Updates
Jihad Ward
News
The Raiders selected Ward in the second round of the 2016 NFL Draft, 44th overall.

Ward didn't produce much at Illinois, but his rawness is largely explained by inexperience, and the presumption is that he has considerable upside thanks to unusual athleticism for a player with such a big build. At 6-foot-5, 297 pounds, Ward is an enormous figure, but he showed standout quickness and explosiveness at the Combine by logging a 7.38-second three-cone drill and 111-inch broad jump at the Combine.

Dexter McDonald
No Updates
Ian Silberman
News
The 49ers have signed the following draft picks to four-year contracts: Jaquiski Tartt , Eli Harold, Blake Bell, Mike Davis, DeAndre Smelter, Bradley Pinion, Ian Silberman, Trenton Brown and Busta Anderson, the team announced on Monday.

Tartt was selected in the second round out of Samford, where he amassed 277 tackles with six interceptions in his college career. Davis was selected in the fourth round and rushed for 2,440 yards and 22 touchdowns on 454 carries in his college career.

Daren Bates
News
Bates recorded one tackle during Oakland's 35-34 win over New Orleans on Sunday.

Bates functioned primarily as a special teams asset Sunday where he saw 28 snaps. It appears that the leg injury Bates suffered a few weeks back is no longer an issue.

David Amerson
News
Amerson recorded two tackles (one solo) during Saturday's wild-card loss to the Texans.

Amerson notched just five total tackles and zero passes defensed throughout the Raiders' past three games, so he'll enter the offseason with little positive momentum.

Shilique Calhoun
News
Calhoun (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.

Injury
Knee - Questionable for the start of training camp
Tyrell Adams
News
Adams has been signed by the Raiders, Adam Caplan of ESPN reports.

Adams' signing comes as the Oakland is dealing with injuries to linebackers Perry Riley and Shilique Calhoun. He will provide depth for the Raiders along their front seven.

Taiwan Jones
News
Jones notched 23 kick-return yards during Saturday's loss to the Texans. He finishes the 2016 season with just one carry for a loss of eight yards to go along with four receptions for 43 yards on four targets.

Jones returned kicks for the Raiders in six games throughout the season, but never became involved in their offense. Rookie running backs DeAndre Washington and Jalen Richard provided a spark behind Latavius Murray, leaving little opportunity for Jones. He has one year remaining on his contract with Oakland before becoming an unrestricted free agent in 2018.

Brynden Trawick
News
Trawick (shoulder) is active for Sunday's game against the Buccaneers.

Trawick had been a limited participant in practices all week with the shoulder issue, but he should be ready to take on his usual backup role in the secondary in Week 8. He's accrued 10 tackles over six appearances on the season.

Connor Cook
News
Cook completed 18-of-45 passes for 161 yards, one touchdown and three interceptions and was sacked three times in Oakland's 27-14 loss to Houston in their AFC wild-round playoff game Saturday.

Cook was in a tough spot, making his first career NFL start against the league's top-ranked defense, which led to predictable results. Oakland had just 203 yards of total offense and failed on 14 of 16 third-down attempts. The rookie was able to string together one good drive, but he missed targets all day and was hurt by some drops. The Raiders offense, so productive all season with Derek Carr steering, scored just 20 points in two games without him.

Gabe Holmes
News
The 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.

Injury
Ankle - Questionable for the start of training camp
K.J. Brent

Sean Smith
News
Smith 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.

Injury
Shoulder - Questionable for the start of training camp
T.J. Carrie
News
The Raiders have listed WR Denarius Moore, WR Vincent Brown, CB Chimdi Chekwa, CB T.J. Carrie, G Tony Bergstrom, T Menelik Watson and DT Stacy McGee as inactive Week 17 against the Broncos.

Brown, Chekwa and Moore had all been ruled out prior to Sunday. Both Carrie and Watson entered the contest listed as questionable. Carrie is dealing with an ankle injury. Watson has foot and ankle issues. Bergstrom and McGee are healthy scratches. 

Kenneth Durden

Michael Crabtree
News
Crabtree finished with 89 receptions (on 145 targets) for 1,003 yards and eight touchdowns in 16 games played this season, but he did drop a league-high 13 passes thrown his way, The Mercury News reports.

Crabtree led the Raiders in catches, targets and receiving touchdowns -- placing in the top 10 league-wide in the latter two categories -- despite playing opposite Amari Cooper, who blossomed into a Pro Bowler in his second season. In fact, 2016 marked the second time in eight seasons that Crabtree topped the 1,000-yard mark. Overall, his final numbers were strikingly similar to those from his first season in Oakland, when Crabtree posted a 85/922/9 line last year. That evidences the veteran's consistent role in a passing game that's emerged as one of the league's best behind quarterback Derek Carr, but Crabtree could improve his stock further by dropping fewer balls next season. Although he suffered a concussion in the Raiders' playoff loss Saturday, Crabtree figures to make a full recovery over the offseason, which he now enters having not missed a single regular season game over the past three years.

Andy Mulumba
News
Mulumba was released by the Chiefs on Friday, Terez A. Paylor of The Kansas City Star reports.

The 26-year-old spent his firs three season in Green Bay. He projected to backup Dee Ford at the left outside linebacker position while Justin Houston is sidelined, so this cut is somewhat surprising. Dadi Nicolas now appears to have assumed that role

Dwayne Norman

Demetrius Cherry

Stacy McGee
News
McGee (groin) notched two tackles (two solo) during Saturday's wild-card loss to the Texans.

McGee recorded a tackle for the first time in six games, but it was too little too late for the Raiders with their season coming to an end. The 26-year-old is now slated to test free agency after four years in Oakland.

Gabe Jackson
News
Raiders guard Gabe Jackson (knee), tight end Brian Leonhardt (concussion) and cornerback T.J. Carrie (ankle) are active for the game at St. Louis after being listed on the injury report.
Aldon Smith
News
Smith (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.

Injury
Suspension - Suspended indefinitely
Jamize Olawale
News
Olawale gained six yards on one carry during Saturday's wild-card loss to the Texans.

Olawale was given a rushing attempt for the first time in the Raiders' last seven games, while Latavius Murray, Jalen Richard, and DeAndre Washington continued to lead the way out of the backfield.

Keith McGill
News
McGill (abdomen) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Panthers.

McGill will avoid missing his first game of the season despite being limited in practice throughout the week due to an abdomen injury. He'll serve as Karl Joseph's backup at strong safety.

Malcolm Smith
News
Smith (hamstring) is questionable to return to Saturday's wild-card game in Houston.

The Raiders' leading tackler on the season with 103, Smith also notched two forced fumbles, one fumble recovery, and one interception across 15 outings. If he's unable to take the field again Saturday, Daren Bates is the likely candidate to fill in at weak-side linebacker.

Injury
Hamstring - Questionable for the start of training camp
Darius Latham
News
Latham (ankle) is active for Sunday's game against the Chargers.

Latham was limited in practice this week, but will be good to go after missing the Raiders' last two games. He will provide depth along Oakland's defensive line.

Justin Ellis
News
Ellis made three tackles (three solo) in his season debut Sunday against the Saints.

Ellis was presented with many opportunities to stop the Saints' rushing attack, as they ran the ball just 22 times throughout the entire game. He should have a bigger role Week 2 against running back Devonta Freeman and the Falcons.

DeAndre Washington
News
Washington rushed four times for 16 yards in the Raiders' 27-14 loss to the Texans' in their AFC wild-card playoff game Saturday.

The Raiders struggled to move the ball consistently with Connor Cook leading the offense, but Washington's sudden downtick in usage is nonetheless surprising, especially since he's been the most effective Raiders tailback as of late and out-touched starter Latavius Murray in the regular season finale. However, with Murray set to be an unrestricted free agent in 2017, Washington now enters the offseason with an opportunity to seize the top slot on the depth chart.

Derek Carr
News
Carr, whose season ended due to a broken right fibula, suffered a fractured right pinkie finger in Week 12, The Mercury News reports.

Carr's offseason focus will rightfully be rehabilitation on his right leg, but prior to the devastating injury, he was toughing out what was believed to be a dislocated finger at the time. In his first two games with the ailment in tow, he completed a measly 36 of 76 passes while averaging just short of 5.0 yards per attempt. He displayed increased comfort in his final two appearances, surpassing 60 percent passing in both outings, as he did in each of the first 11 contests of the year. After Carr went down for good in Week 16, the Raiders' fortunes were effectively sealed, losing out on the AFC West title in the regular season finale and dropping out of the postseason, 27-14, to the Texans in the wild-card round. If all goes as planned in his recovery, he should be healthy enough to take part in the majority of the offseason program.

Injury
Lower Leg - Questionable for the start of training camp
Oni Omoile

James Cowser
News
Cowser has been signed to the Raiders' active roster, Adam Caplan of ESPN reports.

Cowser's signing will add depth to the Raiders' pass-rushing depth.

Sebastian Janikowski
News
Janikowski didn't attempt a field goal and converted two of two PATs during the Raiders' 27-14 postseason loss to the Texans on Saturday.

Perfectly coinciding with Derek Carr's (broken leg) absence, Janikowski didn't attempt a field goal in any of the Raiders' last three games as the offense simply couldn't move the ball on a consistent basis. Despite this sudden dropoff in usage, Janikowski still finished the 2016 campaign with the 10th-most field goals in the league and could make for an attractive fantasy option on an up-and-coming Oakland squad in 2017.

Perry Riley
News
Riley (hamstring) is active for Saturday's game against the Colts.

Despite being limited in practice throughout the week due to a hamstring issue, Riley will suit up for Saturday's tilt. Riley, a middle linebacker, has just two games with more than five tackles this season.

Dan Williams
News
Williams notched three tackles (two solo) during Saturday's loss to the Texans.

Throughout 16 games during the regular season, Williams recorded a career-low 17 tackles to go along with 0.5 sacks and one pass defensed. He has two years remaining on his contract with Oakland, and will look to improve upon a disappointing season in 2017.

Denver Kirkland
No Updates
Johnny Holton
News
Holton was unable to catch his only target in Sunday's regular season finale against the Broncos.

Holton was also handed a rushing attempt, but he failed to gain a single yard. He finishes the 2016 regular season with just two receptions on three targets for 34 yards in 15 games. He also rushed for 43 yards on six carries to go along with a lost fumble. It was a bit of an uneventful rookie season for Holton, but he has two years left on his contract with the Raiders so he'll look to prove his worth down the road.

Karl Joseph
News
Joseph (toe) is active for Saturday's game in Houston.

The Raiders didn't have the services of their 2016 first-rounder for the final four outings of the regular season due to an injured left big toe. After turning in limited showings in practice this week, Joseph will return for the first time since Week 13 as the starting strong safety, from which he racked up 60 tackles (44 solo), one interception, and one fumble recovery prior to the recent respite.

Donald Penn
News
Penn won't participate in the Pro Bowl due to his knee fracture, Scott Bair of CSN Bay Area reports.

Penn missed the Raiders wild-card playoff loss to Houston due to his small knee fracture and it appears he has yet to recover. Though it's preventing Penn from participating in the Pro Bowl, his knee injury isn't expected to linger into offseason practices.

Injury
Knee - Questionable for the start of training camp
Cooper Helfet
News
Helfet signed a reserve/future contract with the Raiders on Monday.

Helfet appeared in 25 games for the Seahawks in 2014 and 2015 but was waived after fracturing his foot in training camp last summer. With Mychal Rivera set to hit free agency, Helfet appears to have a wide-open shot to secure the Raiders' No. 3 tight end slot in advance of the 2017 campaign.

Cory James
News
James (shoulder) is active for Thursday's Week 14 matchup with Kansas City.

James was limited in practice all week but isn't expected to be limited on Thursday. He'll start at linebacker alongside Bruce Irvin and Malcolm Smith once again.

Denico Autry
News
Autry recorded three tackles (three solo) and one sack during Sunday's win over the Chargers.

Two of Autry's three tackles were for a loss of yards in Week 15, and he now has two sacks throughout the Raiders' past three games. His IDP value remains limited, but he's sure been a surprising boost for the Raiders' defensive unit as of late.

D.J. Hayden
News
Hayden (hamstring) was officially placed on injured reserve Saturday, ESPN reports.

Hayden was expected to be out for the remainder of the season after injuring his hamstring last Sunday against the Panthers. In his absence, T.J. Carrie appears set to take over as the Raiders' No. 3 corner for the remainder of the season.

SaQwan Edwards
News
Edwards 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.

Injury

Austin Howard
News
Howard had surgery to repair his injured shoulder Wednesday, Scott Bair of CSN California reports.

Howard played through his shoulder since suffering it during training camp. He's expected to be recovered in time for offseason practices.

Shoulder - Questionable for the start of training camp
Ben Heeney
News
Heeney, 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.

Injury
Ankle - Questionable for the start of training camp
Jon Condo
News
Raiders long snapper Jon Condo left Week 1 against the Chargers in the first half due to a head injury. He did not return.
Kelechi Osemele
News
Osemele (ankle) is active for Saturday's wild-card game against Houston.

Osemele was considered to be on the probable side of questionable and it would've been surprising had he been ruled out. He'll take on his usual role starting at guard as the Raiders look to protect rookie quarterback Connor Cook, who'll be making his first career start.

Ryan O'Malley
News
O'Malley was waived by the Raiders on Saturday, Adam Caplan of ESPN reports.

O'Malley was seeing limited action behind Clive Walford and Mychal Rivera before being released.

Marquette King
News
King appeared in all 16 regular season games for the Raiders in 2016, averaging 48.6 yards per punt on 81 punts which was good enough for second in the NFL behind the Colts' Pat McAfee.

King's solid play throughout the season also earned him second team All-Pro honors by the Associated Press, CSNBayArea.com reports. Having signed a five-year extension with Oakland in February of 2016, King is slated to remain with the Raiders through 2020.

Amari Cooper
News
Cooper (unspecified injury) will skip the upcoming NFL Pro Bowl, CSN Bay Area reports.

While the exact nature of the ailment that will keep him out of the contest has not been confirmed, the wideout dealt with a shoulder injury late in the 2016 season, so it's quite possible that Cooper is bowing out to tend to that issue.

Injury
Undisclosed - Questionable for the start of training camp
Andre Holmes
News
Holmes caught four of five targets for 50 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's 37-14 postseason loss to the Texans.

Holmes stepped up as the Raiders' No. 2 option in the passing game once Michael Crabtree exited with a concussion and displayed good hands when thrown the ball. His touchdown grab came in garbage time, though, and marked just his fourth score of the season. Set to be an unrestricted free agent in 2017, Holmes could contend for a starting spot if he signs with a receiver-needy franchise in the offseason.

Menelik Watson
News
The Raiders' offensive line took a big hit Sunday, when starting right tackle Menelik Watson ruptured his Achilles tendon in the first half. He will miss the entire 2015 season, per the San Francisco Chronicle

"He was having a great camp for us and really playing well," Raiders coach Jack del Rio said. 

Watson will be replaced by sixth-year veteran Austin Howard, who started at guard for Oakland last season.

Clive Walford
News
Walford caught two of two targets for 16 yards during the Raiders' 27-14 loss to the Texans on Saturday.

Walford fared better than most of his teammates with rookie Connor Cook under center (considering he racked up the fourth-most receiving yards on the team despite seeing just the seventh-most targets), but was still out-gained by No. 2 tight end Mychal Rivera. However, with Rivera set to hit the open market in the offseason, Walford could find himself in position to handle the bulk of the Raiders' receiving responsibilities from the tight end position in 2017.

Mychal Rivera

Rivera caught four of five targets for 31 yards in the Raiders' postseason loss to the Texans on Saturday.

Rivera out-produced No. 1 tight end Clive Walford on Saturday, but -- as to be expected from an offense quarterbacked by rookie Connor Cook -- wasn't able to do much on the whole as the Raiders seemingly couldn't move the ball whatsoever until garbage time arrived. Now set to be an unrestricted free agent in the offseason, Rivera has incentive to find a new home in 2017 with a team more eager to utilize his pass-catching prowess.

Matt McGloin
News
McGloin (shoulder) was active for Saturday's wild-card loss to the Texans, but as expected he didn't play a snap with rookie quarterback Connor Cook at the helm.

McGloin finished the 2016 season with eight completions on 15 pass attempts for 50 yards and no interceptions or touchdowns in three games. McGloin's shoulder injury didn't allow for him to get the start at quarterback in the Raiders' brief playoff stint, but he figures to be fine moving forward into the offseason. He's set to test the market as an unrestricted free agent in 2017.

Bruce Irvin
News
Irvin notched five tackles (three solo) during Saturday's wild-card loss to the Texans.

Irvin and fellow pass-rusher Khalil Mack were unable to get to the quarterback in what turns out to be the Raiders' lone playoff tilt. The 29-year-old veteran has three years remaining on his contract with Oakland, so he'll look to start for the Raiders at outside linebacker again in 2017.

Jon Feliciano
News
Guard/center Jon Feliciano, a fourth-rounder who is set to battle for a starting job, and sixth-round defensive end Max Valles have signed their rookie contracts, the Raiders have announced.

Valles recorded 78 tackles and 13 sacks over two seasons at Virginia.

Neiron Ball
News
Ball 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.

Injury
Undisclosed - Questionable for the start of training camp
Seth Roberts
News
Roberts caught just one pass on seven targets for one yard during Saturday's wild-card loss to the Texans.

Roberts and rookie quarterback Connor Cook severely struggled to connect throughout Saturday's brutal tilt for the Raiders. As noted in Roberts' Week 17 recap note, he'll enter the upcoming offseason as an exclusive rights free agent with the possibility of returning to Oakland.

Nate Allen
News
Allen (concussion) was ruled out for Saturday's wild-card playoff game against the Texans.

Allen suffered a concussion in the regular season finale against Denver and hasn't cleared protocol.
