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.”

Lee Smith
News
Smith (wrist) is active for Sunday's game against the Titans.

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.

Greg Townsend
News
Townsend (undisclosed), who began training camp on the PUP list, participated in Wednesday's practice, ESPN's Paul Gutierrez reports.

The reason for Townsend's placement on the PUP remains unknown. Now healthy, he will compete for a depth role at defensive end behind Khalil Mack and Mario Edwards.

Injury
Undisclosed - PUP. Questionable for start of season
Reggie Nelson
News
The Raiders and Nelson agreed to a two-year contract Wednesday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

One of the top free agents remaining on the market, Nelson conveniently fills a need in the Raiders' secondary at free safety, which has been his domain throughout nine campaigns with the Jaguars and Bengals. Overall, he's picked off 30 passes, forced eight fumbles, recovered five fumbles, and recorded 6.5 sacks in 138 career games. Of those 30 interceptions, he notched a career-high eight last season, which is a telling sign for his IDP viability as a 32-year-old defensive back.

Terran Vaughn
No Updates
Jalen Richard
News
Richard (knee) worked with team trainers on the side at Saturday's practice, Vic Tafur of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Despite missing Oakland's first two preseason games, the team remains optimistic that Richard will be ready to go for the start of the regular season. Richard has been impressive in his small sample size and the Raiders are eagerly looking for someone who can give Latavius Murray a breather every once in a while.

Injury
Knee - Questionable for start of season
Mario Edwards
News
Edwards (hip) will not need surgery on his sprained hip, Scott Bair of CSN California reports.

Edwards injured his hip while tackling Cardinals' running back David Johnson during Thursday's preseason contest. Edwards was given a four-to-six week timetable, but it was questionable if he needed surgery or not. Now that it's clear he just needs time and not surgery, he'll likely be able to return sooner than he otherwise would've, though his status for the regular season opener is still in question.

Injury
Hip - Questionable for start of season
Latavius Murray
News
Murray led the Raiders in carries during Thursday's exhibition loss to the Packers, with six rushes for 19 yards and one catch resulting in a loss of four yards.

The entire Raiders offense, including Murray and fellow running backs, couldn't seem to get anything going after a successful preseason opener last week against the Cardinals. Murray's starting spot out of the backfield isn't in danger, although rookie DeAndre Washington continues to make a case for himself as possibly a change-of-pace option who could eventually cut into Murray's touches.

Khalil Mack
News
Mack recorded two tackles (one solo) and a sack in Sunday's loss to the Packers.

After a three-sack performance last week against the Broncos, Mack followed it up with another sack this week against the Packers. He's now leading the NFL with 15 sacks and he's quickly becoming one of the best pass-rushers in the NFL. Mack holds great fantasy value as an IDP and he should have a great matchup on Thursday night against a banged up Chargers line that gives up a ton of sacks.

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
Korey Toomer
News
The Rams reached the NFL's 75-man roster limit Tuesday with the release of 13 players, per ESPN.com, who include: OT Steven Baker, OT Travis Bond, CB Imoan Claiborne, S Jay Hughes, LB Keshaun Malone, LS Tyler Ott, K/P Michael Palardy, WR Tyler Slavin, TE Brad Smelley (waived/injured), LB Korey Toomer (waived/injured), C David Wang, WR Damian Williams (contract terminated) and DT Doug Worthington.

CB E.J. Gaines (foot) was placed on injured reserve. The Rams had previously waived/injured receiver Isiah Ferguson but he reverted to injured reserve with a torn ACL.

Dewey McDonald
News
The Colts have pared down their roster to 53 on Saturday by cutting 17 players and making other moves.

The offensive players on the list are running back David Fluellen, quarterback Chandler Harnish, wide receivers Ryan Lankford and Josh Lenz, center FN Lutz, tight ends Weslye Saunders and Erik Swoope and guard Josh Walker.

The defensive players let go by Indianapolis are ends Gannon Conway and Tyler Hoover, linebackers Rob Ruggiero, Kelvin Sheppard, Phillip Hunt and Andrew Jackson, safety Dewey McDonald, tackles Brandon McKinney and Nnamdi Obukwelu and cornerback Sheldon Price.

The Colts waived/injured tackle Matt Hall and safety Delano Howell and placed linebacker Robert Mathis on the reserve/suspended list.

Daren Bates
News
Rams linebacker Daren Bates suffered an apparent knee injury in Friday's preseason game. 

"Daren is sore," coach Jeff Fisher said after the game, per ESPN

Bates was on crutches after the game and will have an MRI on Saturday. 

Tramain Jacobs
News
The Ravens have announced that wide receiver Kamar Aiken and cornerback Tramain Jacobs each signed their exclusive-rights tenders on Monday, reports the Baltimore Sun. 

Aiken's offer was for $585,000 while Jacobs' was $510,000. 

Aiken played in 16 games for Ravens last season, catching 24 passes for 267 yards. Jacobs played in three games in 2014, finishing his rookie campaign on injured reserve (thigh).

David Amerson
News
Amerson has agreed to a four-year, maximum $38 million extension with the Raiders, NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports.

Amerson was claimed off waivers from the Redskins only last September, so Friday's lucrative extension agreement is quite the development for the former second-round pick. To his credit, Amerson impressed with 58 tackles, 25 pass defenses and four interceptions across his 14 games for Oakland. Now with his long-term future secured, the 24-year-old Amerson is expected to build on his 2015 breakthrough as the Raiders' starting cornerback opposite Sean Smith this season.

Shilique Calhoun
News
Calhoun will primarily play outside linebacker, CSN Bay Area reports.

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.

George Atkinson
News
Atkinson carried the ball three times for three total yards to go along with one reception for 15 yards during Thursday's preseason loss to the Packers.

After a near 100-yard rushing performance on just five carries in the team's preseason opener last week, Atkinson's production declined tremendously Thursday as he got four total touches out of the backfield. Rookie running back DeAndre Washington is essentially a lock to make the roster at this point, while Atkinson may have the edge over the injured Jalen Richard (knee) for the No. 4 spot on the depth chart.

Taiwan Jones
News
Jones appears to be the leading candidate to return kickoffs for the Raiders, Eddie Paskal of Raiders.com reports.

Jones is listed second on the team's running back depth chart, but with rookie DeAndre Washington impressing thus far throughout training camp, Jones is realistically the No. 3 option out of the backfield. At this point he might project to have more of a role in the return game, although Washington along with receiver Johnny Holton figure to be given opportunities on kickoffs throughout the remainder of the preseason.

Brynden Trawick
News
The Ravens announced on Friday that tight end Phillip Supernaw, safety Brynden Trawick, cornerback Rashaan Melvin and offensive lineman Ryan Jensen signed their exclusive-rights free agent tenders.

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.

 

Connor Cook
News
Cook racked up 101 yards on six completions during Thursday's exhibition loss to the Packers.

Cook also threw an unfortunate interception, bringing his passer rating down to 64.8. He was the Raiders' most productive quarterback, however, with starter Derek Carr throwing for just 38 yards on nine completions along with fellow backup Matt McGloin being almost non-existent with two passing yards on two completions. Cook, a 2016 fourth-rounder, could be in line to overtake McGloin as the No. 2 option on the depth chart if he continues to outplay the veteran this preseason.

Chris Edwards
No Updates
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 - Doubtful for start of season
K.J. Brent
No Updates
Sean Smith
News
Smith agreed to a four-year, $40 million contract with the Raiders, ESPN's Adam Scheftersean reports.

Smith has never been much of an IDP option, but he's mostly done strong work in coverage while averaging 14.3 starts per season over the course of his seven-year career. Listed at 6-3, 215 pounds, he'll combine with similarly-sized David Amerson to give Oakland the largest starting cornerback duo in the league.

Lenny Jones
No Updates
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.

Michael Crabtree
News
Crabtree reeled in one reception for four yards during Thursday's preseason loss to the Packers.

Crabtree saw just one target in limited action, as the veteran and No. 2 receiver on the Raiders' depth chart doesn't have much competition at this point for his spot. Oakland's entire offense failed to click Thursday, but they figure to get things rolling by Week 1 with quarterback Derek Carr at the helm.

Giorgio Tavecchio
News
Tavecchio is in competition with Sebastian Janikowski for the kicking gig in Oakland, Vic Tafur of SFGate.com reports.

Special team's coach Brad Seely said of the situation, "Will he kick for us? Well, that remains to be seen. But it's a competition, and we're seeing who's best. Obviously, Sebastian has done this for a long time and has been really good. Obviously, he's the front-runner." Tavecchio has become an NFL travel man, as he is in his fifth training camp with his fourth different team.

John Lotulelei

The Jaguars have signed wide receiver Kenny Shaw, defensive tackle David Carter and linebacker Josh Hull while waiving/injured defensive tackle Jordan Miller, linebacker John Lotulelei and wide receiver Damian Copeland.

Stacy McGee
News
The Raiders assigned wide receiver Rod Streater and running back Trent Richardson to the Non-Football Injury list on Friday, the team announced.

Moreover, the team placed defensive tackle Stacy McGee and wide receiver Trindon Holliday on the Active/Physically Unable to Perform List.

Colton Underwood
News
The Chargers made several moves Tuesday, adding running back Shaun Draughn and linebackers Kevin Reddick and Cordarro Law to the active roster. The team also placed running back Danny Woodhead on injured reserve and released defensive lineman Lawrence Guy.

The Chargers added three players to the practice squad Tuesday as well: running back D.J. Adams, tight end David Paulson and outside linebacker Colton Underwood. Adrian Phillips was released from the practice squad, while Marcus Cromartie was released from the reserved-injured list.

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 entered a treatment center, ESPN reports.

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.

Injury
Suspension - Eligible to apply for reinstatement in November
Nathan Palmer
News
The Broncos declared these players inactive for Sunday night's game against the Colts: running back Ronnie Hillman, wideout Nathan Palmer, defensive back Kayvon Webster, linebacker Danny Trevathan (leg), offensive linemen Michael Schofield and Ben Garland and defensive lineman Mitch Unrein.
Neiko Thorpe
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.

Jamize Olawale
News
Olawale is listed as the Raiders' starting fullback heading into the team's preseason opener against the Cardinals, Eddie Paskal of Raiders.com reports.

Olawale will get the nod at starting fullback while Marcel Reece, who's suspended until Week 4 of the regular season, remains sidelined. There's a chance he could earn the starting job outright after the first three weeks of the season, but he'll need a deal of offensive production in order to overtake the veteran for good.

Keith McGill
News
A quartet of Raiders have been red-lighted for the Sunday game against the Broncos, including cornerbacks Chimdi Chekwa (hamstring) and Carlos Rogers (knee). The others are tight end David Ausberry (foot) and guard Gabe Jackson (knee).

Listed as questionable is T.J. Carrie (ankle) while wideout Vincent Brown (hamstring), cornerback Keith McGill (groin), fullback Jamize Olawale (shoulder) and defensive end Justin Tuck (knee) are probable.

Malcolm Smith
News
Smith notched 10 tackles (seven solo) in Sunday's win over the Broncos.

The Raiders' middle linebacker was all over the field again on Sunday as he led all defensive players with 10 tackles. Smith has recorded 96 tackles, a forced fumble and an interception across 13 games this year, and he'll continue to be a very strong IDP option at the linebacker position.

According to the team's official website, the following players are not expected to dress for the Raiders Friday night against Green Bay: Sebastian Janikowski, Taiwan Jones, D.J. Hayden, Chimdi Chekwa, Matt McCants, Lucas Nix, Justin Ellis, David Ausberry and Nick Kasa.
DeAndre Washington
News
Washington gained eight yards on five carries and lost one yard on his only reception (three targets) in Thursday's preseason loss to the Packers.

Coming off a strong showing in the preseason opener, Washington turned in a Thursday dud, along with the rest of the Oakland offense. He did only work as the No. 3 running back, entering the game after Latavius Murray and Taiwan Jones. However, Jones' current standing at No. 2 on the depth chart may largely be a product of seniority, as Washington has served as Latavius Murray's top backup throughout much of training camp. Washington is also in the mix for the punt return job.

Derek Carr
News
Carr completed nine of 13 passes for 38 yards and an interception in Thursday's preseason loss to the Packers.

After starting off the night with a field goal, Oakland's first-team offense was held scoreless on the next four drives. Carr wasn't much better in the preseason opener, completing three of seven passes for 44 yards. Regardless, it's far too early to panic, as Carr should enjoy working behind an improved offensive line, with top wideout Amari Cooper entering his second season.

Sebastian Janikowski
News
Janikowski connected on his only field goal attempt from 46 yards during Thursday's exhibition loss to the Packers.

Janikowski has a bit of competition behind him this offseason in Giorgio Tavecchio, who also made a 28-yard field goal. Unfortunately for Tavecchio, however, he would go on to miss an extra point, helping secure Janikowski's role as the starting kicker moving forward.

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 called the most improved player in training camp by quarterback Derek Carr, Scott Bair of CSNCalifornia.com reports.

Holton's stock among the long list of receivers on the Raiders depth chart has risen throughout camp, and he figures to be the leading candidate for the No. 5 spot behind Amari Cooper, Michael Crabtree, Seth Roberts, and Andre Holmes. Given his performance during the preseason, he's likely earned his place after coming into training camp with the chance of eventually being cut.

Karl Joseph
News
Joseph did not practice on Thursday for undisclosed reasons, Vic Tafur of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Joseph missed time in the offseason while he recovered from an ACL tear suffered back in October, but he hasn't missed any time in camp due to the injury. It's unclear if he's been given the day off for rest or if he's dealing with another injury of sorts. He should be considered day-to-day until more information is available. TJ Carrie figures to get some reps with the first team while Joseph is sidelined.

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. 

Cory James
News
James, a versatile linebacker out of Colorado State, took some first-team reps over projected starter Ben Heeney during Saturday's practice, Scott Bair of CSN Bay Area reports.

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.

Denico Autry
News
Autry (wrist) was removed from the active/physically unable to perform list and practiced on Friday.

Autry was originally the only member of the Raiders to begin camp on an injured list, and now that he's off it he'll look to reclaim his spot on the second unit defense. Last season, Autry played in 14 games for Oakland, recording three sacks, three passes defensed, and 35 tackles.

D.J. Hayden
News
Hayden (ankle) is active for Sunday's game at Detroit.

Hayden will be playing in his first game of the year after starting the season on the PUP list with his ankle injury.

Austin Howard
News
The Raiders drafted Miami guard Jon Feliciano in the fourth round, and offensive line coach Mike Tice has him slated for right guard. 

Feliciano will need to beat out veteran Khalif Barnes to win the job. 

"Right guard and right tackle is an open competition,"  Tice said, per CSN Bay Area. "We’re pretty set on the left and in the middle, and hopefully those guys can maintain their growth. We pointed out some things they can get better at, but the right side is where the competition is."

The candidates for right tackle are Menelik Watson and Austin Howard

"All you want coming in is an opportunity to compete and get better," Feliciano said. "We have that there at the Raiders, and I know everyone is going to go in there and compete. That’s going to be awesome."

Matt McCants
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.

Kelechi Osemele
News
The Ravens listed defensive lineman Chris Canty (ankle) as questionable for Sunday’s game at Houston.

Canty has not been able to practice all week.

The Ravens listed the following players as probable: Owen Daniels, Will Hill, Jacoby Jones, Anthony Levine, Kelechi Osemele, Bernard Pierce, Daryl Smith and Terrell Suggs.

The Ravens are 5-point favorites.

Marcel Reece
News
Reece has been suspended four games for violating the NFL's policy on performance enhancing drugs, CSN Bay Area reports.

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.

Amari Cooper
News
Cooper caught two passes for 21 yards on three targets in Thursday's preseason game against the Packers.

Cooper came out strong with a pair of catches on the opening drive, but he and the rest of the Oakland first-team offense couldn't get anything going for the rest of the first half. The second-year wideout should fare better in his third preseason game, potentially getting to play into the second half against a questionable Tennessee defense. Barring a significant injury, Cooper is poised to overtake Michael Crabtree as the Raiders' leader in targets.

Andrew East

Andre Holmes
News
Holmes was held catchless on two targets in Thursday's preseason game against the Packers.

Meanwhile, No. 3 wideout Seth Roberts caught four passes for 50 yards on six targets, further cementing himself in the role he held for most of last season. Holmes will likely be the No. 4 or 5 receiver, posing an occasional deep threat to opposing defenses.

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.

Jake McGee

Clive Walford
News
Walford (knee) failed to receive a single target during Thursday's preseason loss to the Packers.

Walford was the first tight end off the bench with Lee Smith getting the start. Walford remains the better fantasy option despite being listed No. 2 on the depth chart due to Smith's role as a blocker. If Walford earns more snaps than just obvious passing downs throughout the regular season, he could become a productive factor in the team's aerial attack.

Mychal Rivera
News
Rivera could not haul in his lone target in Thursday's preseason game against the Packers.

Clive Walford didn't draw any targets, but he did have a 19-yard touchdown in Oakland's first preseason contest. With Walford poised to take over as the primary receiving threat at tight end, Rivera may see his role reduced for a second straight year.

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.

Bruce Irvin
News
The Raiders and Irvin agreed to a four-year, $37 million contract Wednesday, Tom Pelissero of USA Today reports.

Irvin was among a stable of capable free-agent linebackers, boasting 22 sacks in 58 career games to date. In addition to his noticeable impact in that realm, he's accrued four forced fumbles, three interceptions, two defensive touchdowns, and two fumbled recoveries. Expect Irvin to team with Khalil Mack to form one of the NFL's most fearsome pass-rushing tandems.

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.

Seth Roberts
News
Roberts caught four passes for 50 yards on six targets in Thursday's preseason loss to the Packers.

The stat line is a bit deceiving, as Roberts caught just one pass for three yards on three targets from Derek Carr, but then came on strong while playing deep into the second half. It was a bit odd to see Roberts on the field for so long, as he doesn't appear to have real competition for the No. 3 wideout role he held down for the majority of last season.

Nate Allen
News
Allen resigned with the Raiders on Thursday.

Allen resigns with the Raiders after being released by the team earlier this week. By releasing and resigning, the Raiders saved $5 million, as they avoided giving the safety the full guarantee of his last deal.
