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