by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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

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 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.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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 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.

Hudson sustained the injury during Sunday's loss to the Texans and played only 10 snaps.

The 30-year-old's potential availability should receive further clarity when the Raiders return to practice later this week.

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: 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.

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.

Raiders C Rodney Hudson gets high praise during OTA's
by Ruben Palacios | CBS Sports Staff

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

“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.”
