by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Raiders traded Hudson to the Cardinals on Wednesday, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.

A report Tuesday suggested the Raiders were releasing Hudson, but it turns out they were able to find a trade partner, swapping draft picks with the O-line-needy Cardinals. Hudson started 13 or more games in each of the past eight seasons, earning Pro Bowl nods in 2016, 2017 and 2019 for the Raiders.

Raiders' Rodney Hudson: Cleared for Sunday's game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hudson has been activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list and will play in Sunday's game versus the Buccaneers, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

Hudson was on the COVID-19 list after coming into contact with Trent Brown, who tested positive. Hudson has now tested negative enough times to be cleared for Sunday's game, where he'll have a tough test against Tampa Bay's fierce front seven.

Raiders' Rodney Hudson: May be ready for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hudson will be activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list for Sunday's game versus the Buccaneers if he continues to test negative, Paul Gutierrez of ESPN.com reports.

Hudson came into contact with Trent Brown, who tested positive, but with another negative test Saturday, Hudson will be available for Sunday's game versus the Buccaneers. However, if Hudson can't play, Andre James is next up to start at center.

Raiders' Rodney Hudson: Shifts to COVID-19 list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Raiders placed Hudson on the reserve/COVID-19 list Thursday, per the NFL's official transaction page.

Hudson was placed on the list because he either tested positive for the virus, or came into close contact with someone who did. The veteran became the fifth offensive linemen for the Raiders to be placed on the COVID-19 on Thursday, leaving the team extremely thin up front. If he's unable to play in Week 7, Andre James would be in line for the start at center.

Raiders' Rodney Hudson: Available for finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hudson (ankle) is absent from the Raiders' final injury report heading into Sunday's Week 17 matchup with the Broncos, Paul Gutierrez of ESPN.com reports.

Hudson logged a full practice Friday and looks good to go for the Raiders' regular-season finale barring any setbacks.

Raiders' Rodney Hudson: Puts in limited practice Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hudson (ankle) doesn't carry an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Chiefs.

After being spotted in a walking boot after Sunday's loss to the Jets, Hudson sat Wednesday's practice out before returning in a limited capacity for the last two sessions of the week. Nevertheless, he won't wear an injury tag for Week 13.

Raiders' Rodney Hudson: Wearing boot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hudson was spotted wearing a walking boot on his right foot following Sunday's loss to the Jets, Paul Gutierrez of ESPN.com reports.

There was no news indicating Hudson suffered an injury during Sunday's game, so it's unclear whether the walking boot is just a precaution or indicative of a more serious issue. It's likely that the team will have an update on Hudson's health heading into next week's huge game against the Chiefs. If Hudson can't suit up, Andre James would be in line to take over starting center duties.

Raiders' Rodney Hudson: Active versus Chargers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hudson (ankle) is active for Thursday's contest against the Chargers.

Hudson initially drew a questionable tag for Thursday's divisional contest due to an ankle injury, but he'll ultimately manage to suit up despite the issue. The starting center's availability is a notable boost for Oakland's offensive line.

Raiders' Rodney Hudson: Deemed questionable for TNF
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hudson (ankle) is listed as questionable for Thursday's matchup against the Chargers.

Hudson worked in a limited fashion Wednesday, and he's still in danger of missing a second straight game. If he's ultimately inactive, Andre James is in line to start at center.

Raiders' Rodney Hudson: Not suiting up Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hudson (lower leg) is inactive for Sunday's game versus Detroit.

Hudson was able to finish the week as a limited practice participant to receive the questionable tag, but he won't be able to play Sunday. Andre James (ankle) is healthy and should fill in at center for the Raiders.

Raiders' Rodney Hudson: Labeled as questionable
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Raiders have listed Hudson (lower leg) as questionable ahead of Sunday's game against the Lions, Paul Gutierrez of ESPN.com reports.

Hudson practiced in limited fashion Friday after being a non-participant earlier in the week. Thus, he appears to be trending in a positive direction, but he still looks like a game-time decision. With backup center Andre James (ankle) also questionable, Richie Incognito could potentially be called upon to handle center duties should both get ruled out.

Raiders' Rodney Hudson: Will avoid injured reserve
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hudson (lower leg) is expected to miss some time but won't be placed on injured reserve, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Hudson had X-rays come back negative Monday, but coach John Gruden indicated the team wasn't sure of the severity of the injury. The specifics remain unclear, but he 30-year-old didn't practice Wednesday and seems unlikely to play Sunday against the Lions.

Raiders' Rodney Hudson: X-rays return negative
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hudson had X-rays come back negative on his lower leg Monday, Paul Gutierrez of ESPN.com reports.

Hudson sustained the injury during Sunday's loss to the Texans and played only 10 snaps. The X-ray results are obviously good news, but coach Jon Gruden indicated the team may not know the severity of the injury. The 30-year-old's potential availability should receive further clarity when the Raiders return to practice later this week.

Raiders' Rodney Hudson: Leaves with leg injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hudson was forced out of Sunday's game against the Texans with a lower-leg injury.

Hudson was held back during practice week with an ankle injury, so this issue may be related. As long as the 30-year-old is on the sidelines, Andre James is slated to take over at center.

Raiders' Rodney Hudson: Will gear up against Texans
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Raiders' Rodney Hudson: Secures huge payday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hudson agreed to terms on a three-year, $33.4 million contract extension with the Raiders on Saturday, Paul Gutierrez of ESPN reports.

The deal will award Hudson with $24.4 million in guaranteed money, and his annual salary of $11.13 million makes him the highest-paid center in the league. The veteran will continue to anchor an offensive line that should be among the league's best in 2019.

Raiders' Rodney Hudson: Agrees to restructured contract
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hudson agreed to a restructured contract Friday, opening $5.6 million in cap space for Oakland, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

The Raiders effectively converted over $7 million of Hudson's 2018 base salary into a bonus. This move gives a team without much cap space some breathing room for future contract negotiations. Named to the Pro Bowl each of the past two seasons, Hudson will start at center along a strong Oakland offensive line, one that added offensive tackle Kolton Miller (UCLA) in the first round of the 2018 NFL Draft.

Raiders' Rodney Hudson: Active Week 16
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hudson (ankle, illness) is listed as active for Monday's game in Philadelphia.

Hudson enters Monday's game as Pro Football Focus' top-graded center in terms of pass blocking. However, an ankle injury combined with an illness to prevent Hudson from practicing until Saturday this week, making it fair to question whether his effectiveness could be compromised.
