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 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.
Richard was an effective change-of-pace option to bell-cow back Latavius Murray, who tallied 22 of the 28 running back touches. The rookie has tallied between six and nine carries in each of the last three games, and with his ability to handle both returner roles as well if needed, has helped render fellow first-year player DeAndre Washington expendable on game days in recent weeks. Given his solid performances in limited opportunities, Richard's role, modest as it may be, appears secure for now.
This is a positive step in Edwards recovery, as he has not practiced since injuring his hip in the team's first preseason game. The Raiders will now have a window of 21 days to activate Edwards from the IR-R. He figures to help add depth at defensive end if he does return this season.
Murray was about the only bright spot on a night where Derek Carr endured the worst game of his career and the frigid temperatures lent themselves well to the running game. It was only Murray's second 100-yard performance of the season, as well as his third straight game with at least one rushing touchdown. He was notably shut out in the passing game for the first time in 2016, however, but given his track record as an effective receiver ou of the backfield, this was likely just an outlier. Murray has now seen his rushing yardage totals increase in three straight games and will look to keep the momentum going against the Chargers in Week 15.
Mack has been nothing short of brilliant since Week 4, and he's now extended his sack streak to eight games. It's also important to note that he has forced a fumble in five of the Raiders' last six contests as he continues to throw his name into consideration for defensive awards. He'll look to provide a spark again next week versus the Chargers.
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.
Amerson entered the weekend considered questionable due to a minor knee injury that sidelined him for one game, but he was ultimately able to fill his usual role. It appears he also avoided any setbacks, so look for him to start at cornerback once again in Week 14 versus the Chiefs.
Calhoun will miss his third straight contest due to the knee issue, while Tyrell Adams and Daren Bates could see additional reps as reserve outside linebackers.
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.
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 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 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.
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 finished with four catches on seven targets for 21 yards. He subsequently informed reporters following the game that he is set to undergo x-rays on an injured finger. Expect an update on his status when more information becomes available.
McGee will now miss his second consecutive game due to the ankle injury, while Dan Williams and Justin Ellis figure to see expanded roles at defensive tackle.
Smith -- who was eligible for reinstatement Nov. 17 -- completed the next step in his quest to get back on the football field in meeting with commissioner Roger Goodell and league officials Friday. However, it isn't clear whether the meeting went well or not. He is reportedly in "fantastic shape", though, and would likely provide an instant boost to the Raiders' pass rush if given the opportunity.
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.
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.
Latham was able to practice on Wednesday in a limited fashion and had been considered questionable for Thursday's game. This will be the second consecutive game he's missed due to his ankle injury.
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 are clearly comfortable with Latavius Murray (ankle) heading a backfield in which Jalen Richard and Jamize Olawale serve in change-of-pace capacities. As a result, Washington will likely be the odd man moving forward, barring an injury or lacking performance.
Carr endured what was easily his worst outing of the season, completing under 50 percent of his passes and averaging a minuscule 2.85 yards per attempt. He suffered through a bevy of drops by his receivers and connected with primary pass catchers Amari Cooper and Michael Crabtree on nine out of a combined 17 targets for just 50 yards. Cooper also failed to adjust on a would-be touchdown pass in the fourth quarter, and the entire air attack seemed out of synch in frigid temperatures at Arrowhead Stadium. Now tied with the Chiefs for first place in the AFC West, Carr and his offensive teammates will try to bounce back in Week 14 tilt against the Chargers at San Diego.
The chilly weather didn't seem to have much of an effect on Janikowski, but the Raiders' offense struggled to score for what seemed like the first time in forever. They'll look to get back on track next week against the Chargers with a longer period of time to prepare, while Janikowski has missed just one field goal on 13 attempts throughout the team's past five contests.
Riley was able to lead the Raiders in tackles Sunday after a one-game absence due to a minor hamstring injury. Usual starter Cory James was dealing with a shoulder injury, so Riley's ability to step up at middle linebacker was a key for the team's defense. At this point it's unclear if James will be able to play in Week 14, so Riley may see a similar role 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 was unable to participate in practice throughout the short week, and is set to miss the first game of his rookie season. Either Keith McGill or Nate Allen will start at strong safety in place of Joseph.
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 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.
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.
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 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.
Osemele played through his knee injury last week and likely could've again this week after being limited in practice throughout the week, but his illness proved too much to overcome. Jon Feliciano will likely start in Osemele's place.
O'Malley was seeing limited action behind Clive Walford and Mychal Rivera before being released.
Cooper could have turned his night around on a fourth-quarter deep ball that would have gone for a score, but he was unable to make the necessary adjustment to haul it in. The play was essentially a microcosm of the Raiders' passing game on a night where Derek Carr threw for just 117 yards. For Cooper, it was his second-lowest receiving yardage total on the season, as well as the second time in the last three contests that he'd tallied under 30 yards receiving. He's also failed to go over the 100-yard mark since the memorable Week 8 overtime victory over the Bucs, a string of five consecutive games. He'll look to break out of his slump when the Raiders face the Chargers in Week 15.
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.
"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 has seen either three or four targets in each of the Raiders' past six games as he continues to split tight end duties with Mychal Rivera. Expect Walford to play a similar role again next week versus the Chargers.
Rivera hauled in three catches on five targets for the second consecutive week, while he and Clive Walford are essentially splitting the workload at tight end. Both of their fantasy values are limited moving forward as a result.
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 a sack in each of the Raiders' last three games after a bit of a dry spell during the middle on the season. Irvin along with defensive end Khalil Mack are wreaking havoc on opposing offensive lines, and they'll look to make it happen again next week versus the Chiefs.
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 had multiple drops throughout the night, which helped contribute to what was essentially a career-worst game for QB Derek Carr. The second-year wideout, best known in deep fantasy formats for his red zone work, has now failed to score in four of the last five games, while notching just four receptions on 14 targets for a total of 30 yards. He'll try to get back on track in an enviornment sure to be much more conducive to the passing game when the Raiders face the Chargers out in San Diego in Week 15.
