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.”
Smith was placed on reserve while the team signed tight end Ryan O'Malley to the active roster. Smith was the team's best blocking tight end, so his absence is likely to affect the run game more than the passing game. Tight end Clive Walford will continue to see the majority of the team's reps at the position.
Nelson brought in his first interception of the 2016 regular season in Week 3 as the rest of the Raiders' defense also took a step forward, limiting the Titans to just 10 points. Rookie Karl Joseph is the new starter at strong safety opposite Reggie Nelson after the benching of Keith McGill, and the duo will look to keep the momentum next week against the Ravens.
Richard tallied 97 yards last week with Latavius Murray out of the lineup, so it was fair to assume a similar result against Kansas City. Not so much, as fellow rookie DeAndre Washington took the lead role. Richard is an enigma in an unsettled Oakland backfield. He totaled 192 yards and a touchdown in Weeks 1 and 5, but has totaled just 101 yards and no scores in the Raiders' other four games. It's impossible to start him with much confidence until Oakland's stable shakes itself out.
Edwards was also a candidate for the PUP list to begin the season, but Oakland brass must not be convinced his hip injury has progressed enough to consider a Week 7 return as realistic. Nonetheless, Edwards is still expected to return at a later point in the campaign and can be tagged with a return designation after the first six weeks of the regular season.
Murray's limited participation Wednesday still leaves questions regarding his status for Week 7, but the fact that he did what he was asked to do bodes well. The back's activity during the Thursday and Friday practice sessions should tell more about his availability against the Jaguars on Sunday.
Mack now has two sacks in the last three weeks after a relatively slow start to the season, but the Raiders defense overall continues to have issues as they've given up less than 25 points just once. Mack will look to take care of business next week against quarterback Blake Bortles and the Jaguars.
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.
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.
Amerson passed concussion protocol and will be on the field for Sunday's game. He'll serve as the team's starting cornerback with D.J. Hayden slated to be his immediate backup. Amerson's injury will be something to keep an eye on, as Oakland looks to sure up their abysmal secondary.
Calhoun enjoyed a prolific college career as a defensive end at Michigan State, piling up 26 sacks and 41.5 TFLs in his final three seasons. The shift to outside linebacker was to be expected, as he checked in at just 6-4, 251 pounds at the Combine, putting him on the smaller side for even a 4-3 defensive end. With the Raiders mostly expected to deploy a 3-4 scheme, their third-round draft pick (75th overall) will provide depth behind Khalil Mack and Bruce Irvin, with Aldon Smith also in the mix. Calhoun thus faces a difficult path to regular snaps as a rookie, though he could be used as a hand-down rusher on obvious passing downs.
Jones has seemingly been limited in the majority of practices this season, but was able to take part in Sunday's game against the Chiefs after missing the previous two. His participation throughout the rest of the week will help clarify whether he'll be ready for this weekend.
Supernaw was mostly a reserve in 2014 and had two catches for 27 yards. Trawick is a backup safety that plays on special teams coverage units. Melvin was signed off of the Dolphins' practice squad after injuries decimated the cornerbacks. Jensen was a 2013 draft pick that ended up spending the majority of 2014 on the practice squad.
Cook won't suit up Sunday as starter Derek Carr and backup Matt McGloin take over the duties at quarterback.
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.
Smith now has five passes defensed and two picks over the past three weeks combined. The starting cornerback played 96 percent of the defensive snaps during the Week 5 tilt, and that trend should continue next week against the Chiefs when he'll look to give quarterback Alex Smith issues in the passing game.
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.
Crabtree took a step back Week 6 after scoring four combined touchdowns over the previous two weeks leading up to Sunday's tilt. Fellow receiver Amari Cooper saw the bulk of the targets from quarterback Derek Carr with 10 catches on 13 targets for 129 yards, resulting in less opportunity for Crabtree. He'll look to improve upon his performance next week against the Jaguars.
McGee's productivity Sunday could lead to additional snaps moving forward for the back-up defensive tackle. It'll be interesting to see if the Raiders' coaching staff rewards his performance and provides the former sixth-round draft pick with more opportunities Week 6 versus the Chiefs.
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.
With usual starting running back Latavius Murray (toe) ruled out, Olawale was given the opportunity to bang in a touchdown from the one-yard line during the fourth quarter. If Murray remains out Week 6 against the Chiefs, Olawale could continue to see touches in short-yardage situations, but his value is limited as rookies Jalen Richard and DeAndre Washington were the primary options out of the backfield.
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.
Washington saw the most carries of his young career with starter Latavius Murray sidelined. The rookie has averaged 12 touches per game in the two games Murray has missed, but has totaled a modest 101 total yards in the span. Despite leading the team in carries and yards, Washington has yet to score in an Oakland offense built on the pass. He might have done enough in limited opportunities to warrant keeping a leading role once Murray returns, but any furtner competition for work will push Washington's fringe value further south.
Carr connected with a blanketed Andre Holmes for a three-yard score on the game's opening drive, but never struck again. The talented young passer has bursted out with two games of three or more touchdowns to start this season, but has averaged just a score each in the other four contests. His next test will be against a middle-of-the-road Jacksonville pass defense that had limited opponents to under 200 yards passing per game until surrendering 302 yards to the likes of Brian Hoyer in Week 6.
Janikowski converted a 46-yard field goal near the end of the first half, but also missed from 52 yards while the Raiders' offense struggled as well. He has missed from 50-plus in back-to-back weeks, but will look to improve next week against the Jaguars. He remains perfect on extra point attempts so far this season.
Riley led the Raiders in tackles during his first contest with the team after back-up middle linebacker Ben Heeney (undisclosed) was placed on IR earlier in the week. Riley could eventually overtake rookie Cory James as the starting middle linebacker, as James notched just two tackles (one solo) during the Week 5 victory. Although the Raiders' defense has struggled to stop opposing offenses at times throughout the season, the team will look to move to 5-1 next week against the Chiefs.
Williams spent the previous five years with the Cardinals, where he started 40 of the 70 games he played in. Williams totaled 116 tackles and two sacks. He recorded a single-season best 45 tackles a year ago.
Smith spent the past four seasons with the Bills and is predominantly a blocking tight end. He was originally drafted by the Patriots in the fifth round in 2011 before being placed on waivers — which is how the Bills acquired him.
It became clear during the Raiders' Week 1 victory that Holton is currently buried in the team's wide receiver pecking order, but he managed to record two solo tackles on special teams. He also didn't see any action in the return game, with running back Taiwan Jones securing the role of kick returner. More of the same is expected in terms of Holton's role when Oakland takes on Falcons in a Week 2 matchup.
Joseph continues to solidify himself as one of the Raiders most productive assets on defense as he led the team in tackles Sunday. The rookie now has 33 tackles (21 solo) to go along with two passes defensed, one interception, and one fumble recovery through the first six weeks of the season.
The 6-4, 340-pound Penn was home with his wife and two children in Los Angeles, when a man jumped his security fence, smashed through the front door and began "going crazy" inside the home.
Penn claims he doesn't know the man, but he was able to physically restrain the 6-1, 220-pound intruder until police arrived.
Penn got a temporary restraining order against the man, requiring him to stay at least 100 yards away from the family. The case will be heard later this month, when the Penn's are expected to request that the order be made permanent.
Helfet has been tending to a fractured foot in the early days of training camp, which has seemingly spurred the Seahawks to turn elsewhere for tight end depth. If he clears waivers, he'll revert to injured reserve.
James along with fellow rookie Karl Joseph have been young bright spots for a Raiders defense that has struggled at times throughout the season. Since earning the starting middle linebacker job Week 3, James has racked up 31 tackles (25 solo) in the past four games. He'll look to add to those numbers next week against the Jaguars.
Autry missed time early in the offseason due to a wrist injury, resulting in spotty play throughout the preseason thus far. He still has the talent to earn the starting spot, however, but he'll have to impress the coaches on Saturday when the Raiders take on the Titans in their third exhibition contest.
Howard was limited in practice throughout the week and was considered questionable to play prior to kickoff.
Heeney ends his second season in an untimely manner, after recording 15 tackles in just four games. The 23-year-old started the season as the team's starting middle linebacker but was replaced by Cory James in Week 3. The Raiders signed Perry Riley on Tuesday to replace Heeney.
Canty has not been able to practice all week.
The Ravens are 5-point favorites.
The talk leading into the game was a battle of young talent, Cooper versus Chiefs star corner Marcus Peters. Oakland was able to move Cooper around, however, including a couple of favorable matchups with rookie D.J. White that Cooper was able to exploit. The star receiver has topped 125 yards receiving three times already this season, but is still getting shut down in the end zone to the point where back up receiver Andre Holmes has more touchdown receptions over six receptions this season, two, than Cooper has in 36 catches, one.
Holmes saw just three targets throughout the contest, but made his only reception count as he found the end zone for the first time this season. He was only on the field for 14 offensive snaps, while No. 3 receiver Seth Roberts earned 51. More of the same is expected for Week 3's tilt against the Titans.
"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.
Walford had been considered questionable to play earlier in the week due to the minor knee injury that held him out Week 5, but he was ultimately able to participate Sunday. The Raiders offense struggled to get much going on their way to just 10 points against the Chiefs, while receiver Amari Cooper stole the show in the team's aerial attack with 10 catches on 13 targets for 129 yards. Walford's fantasy value heading into next week's tilt against the Jaguars remains limited to deeper formats.
Rivera is listed behind Lee Smith and Clive Walford on the Oakland depth chart, but few expected the tight end responsible for 32 receptions in 2015 to wind up on the inactive list for the season opener. It appears the Raiders are perfectly content to utilize Lee in a blocking role, and Walford as the primary pass catcher, leaving little room in the offensive scheme for Rivera.
McGloin is currently edging out rookie quarterback Connor Cook for the primary back-up spot behind starter Derek Carr. McGloin has served in this role for the past couple of seasons, but Cook could prove himself worthy throughout the rest of training camp.
Irvin now has two forced fumbles throughout the first three weeks of the 2016 regular season as the Raiders' defense finally showed up in Week 3. Their next test will come against the Ravens in Baltimore.
Valles recorded 78 tackles and 13 sacks over two seasons at Virginia.
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.
Roberts amassed the second-most receiving yards for the Raiders on Sunday with just 29, while No. 1 option Amari Cooper racked up 129 yards on 10 catches. Through the first six weeks of the season Roberts is steadily averaging 2.5 receptions and less than 30 yards per game without warranting much fantasy attention. The team's aerial attack will look to get back on track next week against the Jaguars.
