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.”

Injury
Knee - Limited Practice on Thursday. Questionable for Week 13 vs. Buffalo
Jaydon Mickens
No Updates
Lee Smith
News
Smith was placed on the Reserve/Injured List, the team announced Wednesday.

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.

Injury
Ankle - Injured Reserve
Reggie Nelson
News
Nelson reeled in an interception to go along with one tackle (one solo) and one pass defensed during Sunday's victory over the Jaguars.

Nelson and the rest of the Raiders' defense saw improvements in Week 7 after a bit of a horrid start to the season, although they were up against a downward-spiraling Jaguars offense on Sunday. Nelson recorded a season-low in tackles this past week, but will look to get back on track in that department Week 8 against the Buccaneers.

Jalen Richard
News
Richard carried seven times for 23 yards and didn't see a target in the passing game during Sunday's win over the Panthers.

Richard has put up disappointing performances in back-to-back weeks no with averages of 0.7 and 3.3 yards per carry against the Texans and Panthers. Fellow rookie running back DeAndre Washington was inactive due to what appeared to be a coaching decision after decreased involvement in the offense in recent weeks, so it was a bit disappointing that Richard wasn't able to take advantage with an opportunity to produce in Week 12 behind Latavius Murray. Richard will look to get back on track next week against the Bills, who don't have a stellar run defense up to this point.

Mario Edwards
News
Edwards (hip) began doing work on the side of practice Thursday, Scott Bair of Comcast SportsNet reports.

Edwards had not practiced since injuring his hip in the team's first preseason game. His injury has completely healed but he is still rehabbing to get his strength and movement back to where it needs to be in order to play. He remains a candidate to be activated off IR and would be eligible to play immediately, though he may need added time to get back into the swing of things in games and at practice.

Injury
Hip - Injured Reserve
Latavius Murray
News
Murray (ankle) was listed as a limited participant at Wednesday's practice.

Murray has been able to play through his ankle issue of late and we don't expect that to change this weekend against the Bills. Murray, who headed into Week 12's action with a questionable tag, played this past Sunday against the Panthers, logging 49 (out of a possible 74) snaps on offense, while recording 19 carries for 45 yards and a TD and three catches for 43 yards.

Injury
Ankle - Limited Practice on Thursday. Questionable for Week 13 vs. Buffalo
Khalil Mack
News
Mack racked up six tackles (six solo), one sack, one forced fumble which he recovered, and a pick six during Sunday's win over the Panthers.

Mack had himself a field day in Week 12 against Cam Newton and the Panthers, forcing multiple turnovers and even finding the end zone for the first time this season. He also extended his sack streak to six games, and he's currently tied for sixth in the league with nine quarterback take-downs on the year. He'll look to continue this recent momentum next week against the Bills.

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 (knee) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Panthers.

Amerson was unable to practice earlier in the week before returning to practice Friday in limited fashion, but he won't suit up in Week 12. D.J. Hayden and TJ Carrie figure to see expanded roles at cornerback for the Raiders in Amerson's absence.

Injury
Knee - Limited Practice on Thursday. Questionable for Week 13 vs. Buffalo
Shilique Calhoun
News
Calhoun (knee) did not play in Sunday's game versus the Panthers.

Calhoun was unable to practice last week and subsequently missed his first game of the 2016 campaign. His level of participation in practice this week will likely shed light on his potential availability for Sunday's matchup with the Bills.

Injury
Knee - Did Not Practice on Thursday. Questionable for Week 13 vs. Buffalo
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 (knee) is active for Sunday's game against Denver.

Jones was limited in practice all week but was never expected to sit out after playing through his injury in Week 8. He likely won't see much action on offense, with his main role being on special teams.

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 (coach's decision) will be inactive for Sunday's game against the Titans.

Cook won't suit up Sunday as starter Derek Carr and backup Matt McGloin take over the duties at quarterback.

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 - Injured Reserve
K.J. Brent
No Updates
Sean Smith
News
Smith (shoulder) is absent from the Raiders' inactive list for Monday night's game against the Texans.

Smith was deemed questionable for Monday's contest after being limited in practice throughout the week. However, the shoulder injury that kept him out of Week 9's win over the Broncos will not keep him sidelined Monday. He will presumably take on his usual role starting at cornerback.

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
No Updates
Vadal Alexander
No Updates
Michael Crabtree
News
Crabtree (ankle) was listed as a limited participant at Wednesday's practice.

Though he headed into this past Sunday's game against the Panthers with a questionable tag, Crabtree saw 65 of 74 snaps on offense for the Raiders, en route to leading the team in receiving, with eight catches (on 13 targets) for 110 yards. While his limitations at practice Wednesday suggest that his ankle is not quite 100 percent, we'd expect the wideout to be fine for Sunday's game against the Bills.

Injury
Achilles - Limited Practice on Thursday. Questionable for Week 13 vs. Buffalo
Demetrius Cherry
No Updates
Stacy McGee
News
McGee (ankle) is listed as active for Sunday's contest against the Panthers.

McGee appears to be behind the ankle issue that kept him sidelined for two games prior to last week's win over the Texans. He figures to once again start at defensive tackle next to Dan Williams.

Injury
Ankle - Did Not Practice on Thursday. Questionable for Week 13 vs. Buffalo
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) has applied for reinstatement into the NFL, Vic Tafur of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Smith's one-year suspension that he was serving for a violation of the league's substance abuse policy is nearing an end, and after entering a treatment center in late July, Smith will once again attempt to make a return to the NFL. Having been suspended and under investigation multiple times over the past few years, Smith will have a lot to prove to the league if he wishes to play once again.

Injury
Suspension - Eligible to apply for reinstatement in November
Jamize Olawale
News
Olawale caught three passes for 90 yards and a touchdown on three targets during Monday's win over the Texans.

Olawale was one of the unlikeliest options to lead the Raiders' in receiving on Monday, but his 75-yard catch and run touchdown in the fourth quarter tied the game up, and ultimately led to the team's eighth win of the season. The fullback figures to remain fantasy irrelevant, but he likely enjoyed the spotlight for once.

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 (quadriceps) is active for Sunday's matchup against the Chiefs.

Smith should assume his normal position as the Raiders' starting weakside linebacker.

Injury
Hamstring - Limited Practice on Thursday. Questionable for Week 13 vs. Buffalo
Darius Latham
News
Latham is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Panthers due to an ankle injury, Jimmy Durkin of the Bay Area News Group reports.

Latham suffered his injury in the second quarter of Sunday's contest. Justin Ellis figures to see a few extra snaps if Latham is unable to return.

Injury
Ankle - Did Not Practice on Thursday. Questionable for Week 13 vs. Buffalo
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 is listed as inactive Sunday against the Panthers.

For the first time in his NFL career, Washington will don street clothes instead of pads, but the writing was on the wall after a four-snap performance Monday against the Texans in Mexico City. The Raiders will instead trust in Latavius Murray (ankle), Jalen Richard, and Jamize Olawale to fuel the backfield.

Derek Carr
News
Carr (finger) practiced fully Wednesday.

Per the San Jose Mercury News, Carr sported a glove on his right hand at practice Wednesday, but it's pretty clear that the dislocated right pinky that the QB suffered in Week 12 won't prevent him from playing Sunday against the Bills.

Oni Omoile
No Updates
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 connected on two field goals in as many attempts to go along with three converted extra points during Sunday's win over the Panthers.

Janikowski still has yet to miss an extra point during a season where it seems that kickers are struggling with the ball being snapped from the 15-yard line. He has also missed just one field goal throughout the Raiders' past three games, while converting on seven attempts during that stretch. His recent consistency and the offense's ability to score has Janikowski on an upward trend.

Perry Riley
News
Riley (hamstring) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Panthers.

Riley is set to miss his first game since joining the Raiders in October due to a hamstring issue. Cory James will continue starting at middle linebacker, but will have little depth behind him.

Injury
Hamstring - Limited Practice on Thursday. Questionable for Week 13 vs. Buffalo
Dan Williams
News
The Raiders announced the signings of defensive tackle Dan Williams and tight end Lee Smith on Wednesday. 

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. 

Denver Kirkland
No Updates
Johnny Holton
News
Holton was not targeted by quarterback Derek Carr during Sunday's win over the Saints.

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.

Karl Joseph
News
Joseph racked up nine tackles (seven solo) during Sunday's loss to the Chiefs.

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.

Donald Penn
News
Raiders tackle Donald Penn subdued a home invasion attempt earlier this month, according to a report by TMZ

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. 

Cooper Helfet
News
The Seahawks waived/injured Helfet (foot) on Saturday, Adam Caplan of ESPN reports.

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.

Cory James
News
James recorded seven tackles (six solo) during Sunday's loss to the Chiefs.

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.

Denico Autry
News
Autry is the leading candidate to replace Mario Edwards (hip) in the starting lineup on the Raiders' defensive line, Scott Bair of CSN Bay Area reports.

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.

D.J. Hayden
News
Hayden (hamstring) is ruled out for the remainder of Sunday's game against the Panthers.

Hayden and Panthers wideout Kelvin Benjamin got tangled up in the fourth quarter. While Benjamin popped right back up, Hayden remained down on the field for a short period of time. TJ Carrie projects to see a significant uptick in playing time for the rest of the game.

Injury

Austin Howard
News
Howard (ankle) will play Week 5.

Howard was limited in practice throughout the week and was considered questionable to play prior to kickoff.

Ben Heeney
News
Heeney was placed on injured reserve with an undisclosed injury on Tuesday.

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.

Injury
Undisclosed - Injured Reserve
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 (knee) is active for Sunday's game against the Panthers.

Osemele will play on Sunday despite being limited in practice throughout the week, so he's therefore slated to get the start at left guard per usual.

Injury
Knee - Limited Practice on Thursday. Questionable for Week 13 vs. Buffalo
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
The Raiders announced the signing of 10 players Wednesday.

The following players were signed as restricted free agents: Larry Asante, Andre Holmes, Marquette King, Brandian Ross and Rod Streater.

Meanwhile, the team also signed the following exclusive rights free-agent players: Denico Autry, Brian Leonhardt, Matt McCants, Jamize Olawale and Neiko Thorpe.

Amari Cooper
News
Cooper caught four of seven targets for just 22 yards in Sunday's 35-32 win over the Panthers.

Cooper managed a long gain of just nine yards in this one and posted his lowest yardage output of the season. He managed 129 yards or more in three of four games from Week 5 through Week 8, but has averaged just 45 yards per game in three contests since then. Cooper still finished second on the team in targets behind Michael Crabtree, but he was outgained on the day by Clive Walford and Seth Roberts, both of whom found the end zone. He should bounce back sooner rather than later, but the other options in the Oakland attack will continue to benefit if opposing defenses are content to focus specifically on stopping him.

Andre Holmes
News
Holmes reeled in two catches for 27 yards on three targets during Sunday's victory over the Broncos.

Holmes put up his best performance of the season thus far in terms of receiving yardage, but that isn't saying much since he has yet to surpass even 30 yards in a single game. With Amari Cooper and Michael Crabtree serving as quarterback Derek Carr's go-to options, along with Seth Roberts securing the No. 3 role, Holmes' value is restricted to the deepest of leagues with the Raiders heading into their bye week.

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 three passes on four targets for 43 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's win over the Panthers.

Walford finally found the end zone for the first time since Week 2, securing his second touchdown of the season. His fantasy value remains limited to deeper leagues however, while he consistently see around three to four targets per game. His lack of volume and big-play ability will seemingly keep him on the waiver wire in most cases. The Raiders next test will come against the Bills, who have been solid against the pass so far this year.

Mychal Rivera
News
Rivera caught one pass on one target for six yards during Sunday's win over the Broncos.

Rivera reverted back to his usual production on Sunday after a quality showing in Week 8 when he scored and reeled in three receptions. He remains cemented as the No. 2 option at tight end for the Raiders as he was on the field for 48 snaps compared to 74 for Clive Walford. The team's aerial attack will look to get going in Week 11 following a Week 10 bye.

Matt McGloin
News
McGloin is listed as the Raiders' No. 2 quarterback heading into their first preseason game against the Cardinals, Eddie Paskal of Raiders.com reports.

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.

Jimmy Bean
No Updates
Bruce Irvin
News
Irvin tied for a team-high with 10 tackles (nine solo) to go along with one sack in Monday's win over the Texans.

Irvin stepped up big for the Raiders' defense as they won their eighth game of the season. The outside linebacker recorded his season-high in tackles by far, with six more than his previous best of four. He also picked up his third sack this year, which will hopefully give him momentum heading into next week's tilt against the Panthers.

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 (knee) is "doing everything" and expected to be "ready to roll" for the offseason program by Raiders' GM Reggie McKenzie.

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.

Injury
Undisclosed - Injured Reserve
Seth Roberts
News
Roberts notched three receptions on four targets for 31 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's win over the Panthers.

Roberts quietly has racked up five touchdown grabs on the season now after securing three of them throughout the first four weeks of his 2016 campaign. With just four games of over 30 receiving yards, however, his fantasy value remains limited.

Nate Allen
News
Allen (quadriceps) is active for Week 6's matchup against the Chiefs.

Allen has missed the Raiders' past two matchups and was limited in practice all week, but he looks good to go as starting free safety Reggie Nelson's immediate backup.
