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 missed last week's game against the Lions due to the wrist injury, marking the first time he's sat out all season. Although he'll be available Sunday, Smith won't see much activity as a receiver. He's yet to see more than two targets in any game this season.
Nelson was Oakland's leading tackler for the second straight week, but the defense continues to struggle as they gave up 35 points to the Falcons in their Week 2 tilt. Quarterback Matt Ryan lit up the Raiders' secondary with 396 yards and three touchdowns, while Oakland will look to improve Week 3 against the Titans.
The Raiders used Richard and fellow back-up running back DeAndre Washington fairly evenly Sunday, but Washington was the more productive option as he racked up 46 yards on seven carries. Starter Latavius Murray had the bulk of the position's fantasy value, managing 57 yards and a touchdown on just eight carries, while adding six catches for 44 yards on six targets from quarterback Derek Carr. Richard also returned one kickoff for 24 yards, and served as the Raiders' punt returner as well. After a breakout performance in Week 1, he came back to Earth and should have a similar role in the run game behind Murray and Washington next week against the Titans.
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 had a second straight strong outing, but would've been even more productive had Jalen Richard and DeAndre Washington not combined for 13 carries of their own in this one. He has found pay dirt in consecutive weeks, but getting to three in a row won't be easy against a stout Titans front that hasn't given up more than 38 rushing yards to any individual through two weeks. With two other viable options in the Raiders backfield, getting enough volume to maintain his value will be tough for Murray going forward.
Mack, along with the rest of the Raiders' defense, struggled to find a groove as the Falcons put up 35 points. He'll look to record his first sack of the season next week against quarterback Marcus Mariota and the Titans.
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 was questionable heading into the matchup after being limited in practice on Wednesday and Thursday. He could see his snap monitored closely on Sunday, in which case DeAndre Washington and Jalen Richard could expect to see increased action.
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 and the Raiders' secondary struggled against quarterback Drew Brees as he threw for 423 yards on 28 completions. They'll have another test next week when they attempt to shut down the Matt Ryan-Julio Jones connection and the Falcons.
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.
The Raiders offense didn't generate much through the air Sunday versus an improved Titans defense, but Crabtree was the team's most reliable threat on the outside and accounted for over half of the yardage generated by the team's wideouts. He already has 19 catches for 220 yards and a score through three games, and he appears to have improved on his rapport with quarterback Derek Carr in the offseason, as the two were productive, yet inefficient last year. Crabtree will look to keep it up next week versus the Ravens on the road.
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.
Olawale capitalized on his goal line carry in the Raiders' season debut, pounding his way into the end zone as he was given just one rush throughout the entire game. He'll continue to start at fullback with veteran Marcel Reese (suspension) sidelined until Week 4.
Smith was on the field for every single Raiders defensive snap Week 2 (64), as the team struggled to stop both the Falcons' rushing and passing attacks en route to giving up 35 points. The starting outside linebacker's next test will come Week 3 against an improved Titans squad.
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.
While Washington got only two fewer carries than Latavius Murray, it was Murray that got the lone Raiders rushing touchdown. The rookie out of Texas Tech has gotten 13 touches through two weeks, but is still a secondary option in Oakland's backfield. Jalen Richard also got seven carries after his strong season-opening performance, further muddling the depth chart. All three running backs will just be cutting into each other's value until one emerges as the clear-cut leading man.
Carr put his team up 14 points with a second quarter touchdown pass to Seth Roberts, but he was unable to find the end zone for the rest of the day as the Tennessee defense clamped down. He registered a season-low in yardage and turned the ball over for the first time, but Carr is still averaging a solid 289 yards per game through the air and owns a 5:1 TD:INT ratio after three games. Car and company will be on the road again next week versus the Ravens.
Janikowski had a chance to pull the Raiders within three points of the Falcons heading into halftime, but came up short from 58 yards. Given the team's offensive production throughout the first two weeks of the season, he'll continue to be a viable fantasy option at kicker moving forward, with the Raiders traveling to Tennessee for their Week 3 matchup.
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.
The Raiders hope that moving the first-round pick into the starting lineup can help address the abysmal secondary play that has plagued the Raiders early this year. The team has given up 1,035 yards in the first two games of the season, something Del Rio is looking to sure-up this week. "I think if you don't make plays and you're in there, you leave the door open for other guys to get opportunities to play," the head coach said on Tuesday. Joseph has had a role on special teams the first two weeks of the season but offseason knee surgery has kept the Raiders from going all-in on the rookie. Joseph said last week that his knee is fine and he is ready to play.
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.
James has been one of the leaders on defense for the Raiders throughout the first two preseason games. In his most recent effort, he racked up four tackles, including one for loss, during the team's loss to the Packers last Thursday. Heeney isn't currently in danger of losing his starting spot at middle linebacker, but James could have a bigger role than originally expected right out of the gate when Week 1 rolls around.
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 practiced in full this week and his ankle injury looks to be behind him. With Menelik Watson (groin) out, the Raiders will likely turn to Howard to start at right tackle along what is a very thin Raiders offensive line.
Heeney's numbers figure to improve after the starting middle linebacker didn't have too many opportunities at making tackles Sunday, with the Saints running the ball just 22 times while quarterback Drew Brees recorded 42 pass attempts. It's not every week the Raiders will be able to give up more than 30 points and still win, so Heeney and his defense will look to improve next week against the Falcons.
Canty has not been able to practice all week.
The Ravens are 5-point favorites.
Reece, who will sit out Sunday's season finale against the Chiefs, is thus eligible to return to action after the Raiders' third game of the 2016 season. In the meantime, he can participate in all of the team's offseason and preseason practices and games.
The Raiders elected to proceed with three options at tight end in Lee Smith, Clive Walford, and Mychal Rivera when it came time to cut the roster down to 53. O'Malley will have a chance to be called up at some point throughout the regular season if he impresses on the practice team.
Cooper was held in check Sunday as he drew some added attention from the Titans' defensive unit, which prompted Derek Carr to look to Michael Crabtree a little more often to move the chains. Cooper exploded for 137 yards in the season opener, but he has generated just 133 yards in two games since. The Raiders are 2-1 and have shown signs of taking the next step on the offensive side of the ball, but Cooper's involvement will be paramount to their success this season and he will have the opportunity to get back on track next week versus the Ravens on the road.
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 came alive in this one after being limited to just three catches for 25 yards in the season opener. As a key cog in an offense that has been throwing early and often, the 2015 third-rounder could become a household name sooner rather than later. Expect him to blow last season's 354 yards and three touchdowns out of the water if he can stay healthy.
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's productivity declined Week 2 after racking up a sack and forced fumble during the season opener against New Orleans. The talented duo of Irvin and fellow pass rusher Khalil Mack has one combined sack throughout the first two weeks of the season, but they'll look to change that next week against the Titans.
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 actually beat out No. 2 receiver Michael Crabtree in targets during Week 2's loss, but he was only able to haul in half of those with his longest reception coming in at 14 yards. No. 4 receiver Andre Holmes scored a six-yard touchdown on his only reception, but saw 37 less offensive snaps than Roberts. With five receptions through two games so far this season, Roberts will look to add to that number next week against the Titans.
Veteran Reggie Nelson was listed as the starter in past unofficial depth charts that were released during the preseason, but Allen takes over the role as the team heads into Week 1. In his first season in Oakland last year, Allen racked up 11 tackles and one interception in five games.
