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.
DePaola suffered a torn ACL during Monday's season-opener against the Rams. The non-contact injury occurred during punt coverage, ending the 31-year-old long snapper's season. The Raiders are expected to sign rookie Trent Sieg as a replacement long snapper in the coming days.
Smith had yet to be targeted all season heading into Week 4, but the backup tight end finally hauled in three passes while quarterback Derek Carr notched 58 attempts. Smith will continue to serve primarily as a blocker while Jared Cook retains his duty as the pass-catching tight end.
McCrane has now missed at least one field-goal attempt in all three of his appearances with the Raiders, while a struggling offense has limited the kicker's upside. Oakland will look to straighten things out during their upcoming bye before hosting the Colts in Week 8.
Nelson's absence figures to leave an opportunity for Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie to see additional snaps behind starters Rashaan Melvin and Gareon Conley at cornerback, but Nelson's injury doesn't appear to be too severe as he could return in Week 4 against the Browns.
Nelson notched his first interception of the season while the Raiders defense got torched for 42 points, but Oakland held on thanks in part to four forced turnovers. Nelson could see inflated involvement against the Chargers again in Week 5 if fellow safety Karl Joseph (hamstring) remains sidelined.
It's a tough break for 22-year-old who appeared poised to take over the starting kicking duties in his rookie season. The Raiders even reportedly were keen on having veteran kicker Mike Nugent groom Pineiro and show him the ropes. That will no longer be the case, at least for this season, as Pineiro will spend his 2018 campaign rehabbing.
The third-year man has subtly comprised a solid six weeks of production to start the season, though almost exclusively as a contributor in the passing game for Oakland. Only 11 percent of Richard's offensive yardage this year is attributed to rushing, compared to an average of 63 percent between 2016 and 2017. Richard is posting per-game clips of 5.2 catches and 42.7 receiving yards, giving him significant added value in PPR-formatted leagues specifically. Once Oakland returns from the bye week, Richard will be facing a Colts defense that has struggled mightily against the pass, allowing opponents to throw for 280 yards or more in five out of six games.
James has been troubled by knee issues all season and missed the Raiders' last two games before being shut down for good. While James was sidelined the past two games, Morrow has risen to the forefront, producing 16 tackles and holding his own in coverage. Morrow could be worth a look in deeper IDP settings down the stretch now that he has a clear path to heavy snaps.
There wasn't room for Butler on the Raiders' 53-man roster with Jared Cook, Lee Smith and Derek Carrier handling the duties at tight end.
The specifics of McDonald's ankle injury remain behind under wraps, but the defensive back is nonetheless stuck on IR through the end of the league year unless he agrees to injury settlement.
Vanderdoes opened training camp on the PUP and remained inactive through the preseason due to the torn ACL he suffered back in December. In opening the regular season on the PUP, Vanderdoes will be forced to miss the first six weeks of the regular season.
Melvin has totaled seven passes defensed through the first four games of the season, but he also posted a season high in tackles Sunday. He'll face a high-scoring Chargers offense led by quarterback Philip Rivers in Week 5.
Wilber did not practice Wednesday and Thursday before finishing the week with a limited session. Fellow reserve linebacker Justin Durant (groin) is also listed as questionable, which could leave Jaylon Smith and Justin March-Lillard as the only reserve linebackers should Wilber and Durant be unable to play.
The 2016 third-round pick got off to a disappointing start in Oakland, but given the Raiders' pass rushing troubles following Khalil Mack's departure, the Raiders seem willing to give it another try with Calhoun. The Michigan State product appeared in 20 games over the last three seasons and recorded just eight tackles over that span.
Cook had never accumulated more than 54 receptions in any of his first nine NFL seasons, but he entered a Week 6 tilt with the Seahawks on pace for 96 catches. The veteran tight end has come back to earth after tearing it up during the first quarter of the regular season, averaging per-game clips of 6.5 catches for 92.5 yards through Week 4, then being held to six combined catches for 30 yards in two games since. Upon returning from the Raiders' bye week, Cook will benefit from his typical high volume of red-zone targets against a Colts secondary that ranks bottom-five against the pass.
Blacknall went undrafted out of Penn State after hauling in 17 passes for 289 yards and two scores in 2017. He'll look to showcase potential as a member of the Raiders' practice squad this season.
Gilchrist already was sidelined for the Raiders' minicamp back in June, and the injury bug has hit him yet again. However, with Gruden hoping the free safety can make a return to practice as soon as Tuesday, it doesn't appear that the injury is too serious. For now, Gilchrist should be considered day-to-day.
Hankins had remained relatively quiet in terms of production through his first two games with the Raiders, but he landed on a pair of fumbles to aid in two forced turnovers for the defense Sunday. He'll continue to work alongside rookies P.J. Hall and Maurice Hurst at defensive tackle.
McDonald logged the Raiders' only sack in just his second game with the team, as Oakland struggled to reach Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill. McDonald was on the field for 77 percent of the team's defensive snaps as head coach Jon Gruden continues to search for any signs of a pass rush.
After three consecutive stellar outings between Week 3 and Week 5 (15 total receptions for 264 yards and three touchdowns), Nelson had his least productive game of the season against a Seattle secondary that ranked No. 6 against the pass coming in. Oakland limps into the bye, but upon re-emerging from the break will be granted a matchup against a Colts' secondary that's allowed 332 passing yards per game over the past three weeks.
Whitehead led the Raiders in tackles for a second consecutive week, but the starting weak-side linebacker was held without a single tackle behind the line of scrimmage. He'll look to add to his count in Week 3 against the Dolphins as Oakland seeks a maiden victory.
Rucker's Week 6 absence was foreshadowed by failing to practice Wednesday and Thursday, so Arden Key should be busy at defensive end across from Bruce Irving against Seattle.
Martin has logged no more than seven offensive snaps in three consecutive games as the 1-5 Raiders continue to struggle heading into their bye. With Oakland trailing for much of the contest against Seattle, Martin was kept to the sideline as fellow backup Jalen Richard played a role in the passing game en route to seven receptions for 48 yards on eight targets. The Raiders' backfield accounted for just 48 rushing yards on 15 attempts, though quarterback Derek Carr (arm) added 31 yards on four carries of his own.
Brown was sidelined during Wednesday's practice but appeared to jump right back into the swing of things. Undrafted out of Mississippi in 2017, Fadol is looking to earn a role as a reserve defensive lineman with Oakland and make his NFL debut in 2018.
Clemmings originally hurt his ankle in October and then lasted about a month before landing on injured reserve in November. However, the exact severity of his condition still hasn't been disclosed, and given the lineman's significant limitations in minicamp there's no certainty that Clemmings will be back to full health in time for training camp. The 2015 fourth-round pick will compete for a depth role once he's healthy.
Ateman, a seventh-round pick of the Raiders in this year's draft, is a likely candidate for the team's practice squad if he clears waivers. He played well in training camp but was competing at a crowded position, leading to him ultimately missing out on the Week 1 roster.
As the Raiders have fallen into early double-digit deficits over each of the past two weeks, Lynch has seen his involvement in the offense substantially depleted. After averaging 19 rushes per game between Week 2 and Week 4, "Beast Mode" has just 22 combined rushes over the past two weeks (for 3.45 yards per carry) in losses to the Chargers and Seahawks. The 1-5 Raiders limp into the bye, with Lynch preparing for a Week 8 matchup against an Indianapolis rush defense ranking in the top 10 in yards allowed per attempt.
Harris nearly made matters even worse for the Raiders in London with a fumble that luckily rolled out of bounds, but the return man could see more involvement as a receiver moving forward if Amari Cooper and Seth Roberts miss additional time with their concussions. Oakland has an upcoming bye week before hosting the Colts, so Cooper and Roberts are fortunate enough to have more recovery time as they look to clear the league's concussion protocol.
The transaction officially rules Nugent out for the next eight weeks, leaving Matt McCrane to handle the kicking job Sunday against Cleveland. The Raiders may eventually look at other options if McCrane struggles, which is a distinct possibility given that he has never kicked in a regular-season game.
Conley was phased out of the defensive gameplan early Sunday, just one week after returning an interception for a touchdown against the Browns. Head coach Jon Gruden claimed the 23-year-old experienced struggles against a potent Chargers offense, benching the 2017 first-rounder in favor of Daryl Worley during his first game back from suspension. It's unclear at this point if Conley will retain his role as a starter Week 6 against Seattle.
Derek Carr will thus have his starting right guard at his disposal against a potent Broncos pass rush.
Carrier has caught at least one pass in each of the Raiders' first two games, but Jared Cook remains the primary option at tight end. Carrier also played half as many snaps as fellow backup Lee Smith, who mainly serves as a blocker.
Smith logged his first rushing attempt of the season in Week 3 while bringing his total to four touches through the Raiders' first three games. The fullback was on the field for 25 percent of the team's offensive snaps, but he'll remain irrelevant in most fantasy formats.
The Raiders are labeling Ellis as week-to-week with the injury, making it unlikely he'll be ready to play Sunday in Denver. After tallying 48 stops in 16 games in 2017, Ellis was shut out of the tackle column across 52 snaps in the Week 1 loss before departing. In addition to Ellis, fellow defensive tackles P.J. Hall (ankle) and Brian Price (hamstring) are also nursing injuries, which could prompt the Raiders to sign Johnathan Hankins to shore up the line, according to Rapoport.
Washington was removed from the injury report this past week after recovering from arthroscopic knee surgery, but he'll be kept inactive Sunday as Marshawn Lynch, Doug Martin and Jalen Richard handle the backfield duties.
Lamur spent time with both Minnesota and Cincinnati over the past five seasons before making the switch to silver and black. The 28-year-old suited up for all 16 regular-season contests with the Vikings a season ago, but saw limited action. He likely won't be in the mix for a starting role in his new destination and should see most of his snaps on special teams.
With a little more than nine minutes left in the fourth quarter, Carr attempted to scramble on third-and-11, was hit by two Seahawks and landed in an awkward manner on his left arm. After getting up with a grimace and going to the locker for an examination, he returned to the sideline but didn't reenter because the Raiders didn't run another offensive snap. Carr is expected to undergo further evaluation Monday to determine the extent of the injury, but considering his comments and the team's upcoming bye week, he's a good bet to be ready for Oakland's next contest Oct. 28 versus the Colts.
Wright was released from Oakland's practice squad last week, but he has quickly rejoined the team's practice squad. The 26-year-old will once again compete to earn a special teams or depth role with the Raiders.
Harris, who had surgery to repair a broken finger, was expected to be back at practice Monday but he took an extra day off and managed to make his timely return Tuesday. Harris is considered to be on the roster bubble, so he will need to have a healthy, productive preseason in the Raiders' secondary.
Rubin sustained a season-ending biceps tear during last week's joint practices with the Lions. To replace him on the roster, Oakland claimed fellow defensive lineman Gabe Wright off waivers.
Holton's time on the Raiders' practice squad could revolve around a potential transition from wideout to cornerback. The position change makes some sense, given Holton's impressive speed and trouble with drops, but it remains to be seen whether the third-year pro will thrive at the defensive back position. If Holton can offer usage as a depth piece in addition to special teams, it could increase his chances of sticking to a 53-man roster down the road.
New coach Jon Gruden has been cleaning house since arriving, but he's not done with the makeover. Amari Cooper also apparently is in his doghouse. Joseph is inactive for Sunday's game against the Seahawks due to the hamstring issue, but his impact has been limited even when he's healthy this season, playing only 11 defensive snaps through the first three games prior to the injury.
Penn exited Sunday's game against the Browns with the leg injury, and now it has been deemed severe enough for him to miss the next eight weeks. Brandon Parker filled in for Penn against the Browns and will likely maintain that role moving forward.
Melifonwu was waived by the Raiders on Wednesday with an injury designation after not having practiced since Aug. 6. He'll likely spend the entire season on injured reserve, but Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports that the safety believes he could make a return this season. If that is the case, the Raiders would have to cut him so he can sign with and play for another team.
General manager Reggie McKenzie touched on Warren's health Saturday, saying the undrafted rookie running back had been playing through a knee issue that was "wearing on him." Consequently, Warren will undergo season-ending surgery to alleviate the concern.
Hurst forced his first career turnover Sunday as the rookie played a season-high 50 defensive snaps against the Browns. He brought his total to two sacks this season and will look to add another in Week 5 against the Chargers.
Lee is ready to return after missing the Raiders' last three games. With Cory James also returning from his own knee injury, the rookie is probably ticketed for a reserve role.
Hall is still recovering from an injury sustained during Oakland's season opener and did not participate in Wednesday's practice. No timetable for the rookie second-rounder's recovery has been given, but his extended absence suggests that Hall won't be ready to retake the field in the near future. Maurice Hurst will continue to serve as the Raiders' starting left defensive tackle until Hall is fully recovered.
LaFell was sidelined during the Raiders' season-opening loss to the Rams and limited in practice to begin the week due to a back issue. The veteran seems healthy heading into Sunday's matchup against the Broncos, but he stands to see limited offensive snaps even if he suits up.
Osemele will be sidelined for a second consecutive week due to a knee issue that kept him out of practice, so Jon Feliciano figures to fill in at left guard again Sunday.
Mitchel was waived by the Raiders on Monday after sustaining an unspecified injury. The defensive back is likely stuck on IR through the end of the league year unless he agrees to an injury settlement with Oakland.
Worley drew the start at cornerback over Gareon Conley, who'd been benched after just 13 snaps during a Week 5 loss to the Chargers. Worley produced with a handful of tackles to go along with a pick, but the Raiders' defense allowed Seattle quarterback Russell Wilson to throw for three touchdowns. Next up is Andrew Luck and the Colts in Week 8 following a Week 7 bye.
Parker had been dealing with a minor ankle injury throughout the past couple of weeks, but he appears to be back at full strength during Monday's session. He could see additional reps at right tackle with Breno Giacomini nursing an undisclosed injury.
Cooper was held without a catch before sustaining a helmet-to-helmet hit during the first half of Sunday's tilt in London. His absence could allow for Jordy Nelson, Martavis Bryant and Seth Roberts to see additional targets from quarterback Derek Carr as the Raiders play from behind.
Sieg should slot in as an immediate replacement for long snapper Andre DePaola (knee), who is out for the season. Oakland will work to acclimate Seig to their special teams playbook as quickly as possible, so the undrafted free agent could see the field as early as Sunday's game against the Broncos.
Apparently displeased with his backup quarterback situation, Raiders coach Jon Gruden is bringing in a replacement for EJ Manuel and Connor Cook. It isn't entirely clear that McCarron will be an upgrade, given that he completed just 46 percent of his passes for 5.7 yards per attempt with the Bills this preseason.
Key recorded the Raiders' lone sack as he started in place of the injured Frostee Rucker (neck), who figures to return following the team's bye in Week 8 against the Colts. Key has now played at least 47 defensive snaps in three consecutive games.
Murray was signed off the Saints' practice squad to fill the roster spot of fellow tackle Andre Smith (knee), who was placed on injured reserve Monday. The second-year player brings no prior NFL experience to the table and will be a depth option along the offensive line.
The 49ers parted ways with Hall less than a week earlier before he could make his team debut, but seeing the field in San Francisco's Week 8 matchup with the Eagles may be a more realistic possibility. Reserve cornerback K'Waun Williams suffered a quadriceps injury in last Sunday's loss to the Cowboys and is considered unlikely to play in Week 8, perhaps paving the way for Hall to be active on game day.
Irvin has now recorded a sack in consecutive games, bringing his season total to three. He's failed to account for more than one tackle in all five of the Raiders' 2018 contests, however, as Frostee Rucker and Arden Key vulture a significant amount of snaps at defensive end.
Feliciano suffered the injury as he was filling in for the inactive Kelechi Osemele (knee) on Sunday. Justin Murray has taken over at left guard for the Raiders.
Bryant is a low-volume asset for Oakland, averaging 4.4 targets per game and only exceeding 55 receiving yards once in five appearances. The clearly gifted, but so far underproducing, Bryant may manufacture some buzz as a midseason fill-in option, with potential for an explosive output against the Colts' No. 28 pass defense in Week 8 after the bye and a matchup with a mostly young and unproven San Francisco secondary in Week 9.
Roberts hauled in a season high five passes, but he wasn't able to finish the game after sustaining a head injury. He'll need to clear the league's concussion protocol, but fortunately Roberts has additional time as the 1-5 Raiders have an upcoming bye week before hosting the Colts in Week 8. Fellow receiver Amari Cooper also left Sunday's tilt with a concussion, leaving Jordy Nelson and Martavis Bryant as Derek Carr's (arm) primary options at receiver.
Johnson, 35, parted ways with the Chiefs this offseason after spending 13 years in Kansas City. Although he's getting up there in age, Johnson is a welcome addition to a weak Raiders linebacking corps and should push for a starting job before long. However, it isn't certain that head coach Jon Gruden views the veteran as a three-down player, so IDP expectations should remain tempered for the time being.
Rodgers-Cromartie had been bothered by a minor hamstring issue earlier in the week, but he was able to play 28 defensive snaps and force a turnover in the process. He'll continue to provide depth at cornerback behind Rashaan Melvin and Gareon Conley in Week 5 against the Chargers.
