02/05/18DBGareon ConleyShinQUESTIONABLEConley (shin) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Dolphins.

Conley hasn't played since Week 3 in Washington and there remains no clear timetable for his return. The rookie first-round pick hasn't played enough to truly show what he brings to the table or what the Raiders are missing with him on the sideline.

02/05/18LBCory JamesKnee - MeniscusQUESTIONABLEJames (knee) is listed an inactive for Sunday's game against the Giants.

James was never more than a limited participant in practice this week and will sit out for the first time since Week 7. Nicholas Morrow is a likely replacement at weak-side linebacker for the Raiders on Sunday.

02/05/18DBObi MelifonwuHipQUESTIONABLEMelifonwu was ruled out for Sunday night's game against the Cowboys with a hip injury, Paul Gutierrez of ESPN.com reports.

Melifonwu didn't participate in practice this week, so his absence doesn't come as a surprise. The rookie safety has appeared in just five games this season, logging seven tackles.

02/05/18TEClive WalfordConcussionQUESTIONABLEWalford (concussion, neck) was placed on injured reserve by the Raiders on Saturday, Michael Gehlken of the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports.

Walford had yet to practice since sustaining the concussion in Week 14, so this move isn't overly surprising as the regular season draws to a close. Pharaoh Brown has joined the 53-man roster from the practice squad and should serve as the Raiders' No. 3 tight end.

01/02/18DLEddie VanderdoesKnee - ACLQUESTIONABLEVanderdoes is out with a minor knee injury Tuesday, Vic Tafur of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Despite missing much of the offseason program while finishing his final term at UCLA, Vanderdoes has been very impressive this summer and is already listed as a starter on the Raiders' first unofficial depth chart of the year, according to Eddie Paskal of the team's official site. While it doesn't sound like this knee injury is much of a concern, it isn't clear if he'll be healthy in time for Oakland's preseason opener Saturday in Arizona.

12/31/17DLMario EdwardsAnkleQUESTIONABLEEdwards won't return to Sunday's game against the Chargers due to an ankle injury.

Edwards sat out Week 16 due to the ankle issue but was clear of an injury designation ahead of the regular season finale. The 23-year-old will finish the 2017 season having played five of the Raiders' final seven games with only a single tackle in that same stretch.

12/31/17DLTreyvon HesterAnkleQUESTIONABLEHester (ankle) has been ruled out for Monday's matchup against the Eagles, Eddie Paskal of the Raiders' official site reports.

Hester left last week's loss to the Cowboys after sustaining an ankle injury, and will now miss Monday's game as well. Look for Eddie Vanderdoes to see an increased role on the defensive line as a result of his absence.

12/31/17DBKarl JosephHamstringQUESTIONABLEJoseph notched 79 tackles (58 solo), one sack, four passes defensed, one interception, one forced fumble and one fumble recovery in 15 games during the 2017 regular season.

Joseph, a 2016 first-round selection, played nearly 300 more snaps during his second season in the league after appearing in 12 contests as a rookie. The Raiders' starting strong safety didn't put up any eye-catching numbers in 2017, but likely stabilized his role in the secondary with two years remaining on his rookie contract. A minor hamstring injury during Week 17's loss to the Chargers ended Joseph's campaign a bit early, but the issue shouldn't linger into the offseason.

12/31/17DBDexter McDonaldAnkleQUESTIONABLEMcDonald is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Chargers with an ankle injury.

McDonald entered Week 17 nursing a knee injury but injured his ankle in the first half Sunday. Sean Smith should step in as the team's nickel cornerback, and Antonio Hamilton also likely will see increased snaps while McDonald is sidelined.

12/09/16LBAldon SmithSuspensionSUSPENDSmith (suspension) will be reinstated in March barring any further issues with substance abuse, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports.

Smith remains subject to the league's drug program, but will be reinstated given he stays on the right path throughout the coming months. He'll certainly add another pass-rushing presence for the Raiders' defense, while defensive end Khalil Mack was recently named 2016's defensive player of the year.
