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.
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.
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.
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.
Mack was held without a sack for the third game in a row, but the All-Pro defensive end notched double digits in tackles for the first time all season. He'll finish his 2016 campaign with 84 total tackles and 11 sacks in 17 games.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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 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.
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 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.
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.
The Raiders maintained some hope that Smith, who applied for reinstatement in October and met with commissioner Roger Goodell earlier this month, could be activated in time for the playoffs, but the league denied his bid for a 2016 return. The 27-year-old, who has appeared in 16 games over the past three seasons while incurring multiple suspensions along the way for substance abuse-related issues, will need to stay on the straight and narrow for the next three and a half months before the NFL reexamines his status for the 2017 season.
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.
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.
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.
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.
As expected, the procedure has been completed, but the prospect of a 6-to-8 recovery timetable has inspired thoughts that Carr could be available for the Super Bowl, if the Raiders were to reach the season-capping contest in Houston under the direction of quarterback Matt McGloin. Optimistic parties should put those thoughts to bed, though. Per a discussion between Dr. Nick Grosso, president of The Centers for Advanced Orthopaedics, and the Bay Area News Group, the notion Carr may be ready for game action in six weeks is untenable. "There will be six to eight weeks minimum for healing and [the] Super Bowl will be over by then," Grosso said. After that initial period, Carr will still need "an additional four to six weeks before he can play again because even once the bone has healed the soft tissue around it also needs to be adapt and remodel itself. But he could be training and even throwing again in three months." With that knowledge, Carr is a great candidate to take part in the entire offseason program, just not Super Bowl LI.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Howard played through his shoulder since suffering it during training camp. He's expected to be recovered in time for offseason practices.
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.
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.
O'Malley was seeing limited action behind Clive Walford and Mychal Rivera before being released.
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.
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.
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.
"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.
With Derek Carr (leg) and Matt McGloin (shoulder) likely out for Saturday's game against the Texans, Oakland has no current quarterback options behind Connor Cook. Gilbert could be activated as an emergency option in the event Cook gets hurt against Houston.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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 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.
Allen suffered a concussion in the regular season finale against Denver and hasn't cleared protocol.
