Position Listing
NaVorro Bowman
News
Bowman racked up nine tackles (eight solo), one sack and a pass defensed in Sunday's 26-15 loss to the Chiefs.

Bowman has consistently led the Raiders in tackles since his mid-season arrival, while he finally logged his first sack of the season on Sunday. The starting middle linebacker has notched 61 tackles (39 solo) in seven games with Oakland, and he'll look to stay busy in Week 15 against the Cowboys.

Rodney Hudson
No Updates
Lee Smith
News
Smith (knee) was a full practice participant Friday and won't carry an injury designation into Sunday's game against the Bills.

Smith started the week with a pair of limited practices, but his full participation Friday allowed him to avoid the questionable tag. The 29-year-old should retain his role as the Raiders' secondary tight end against the Bills.

Reggie Nelson
News
Nelson logged five tackles (three solo) during Sunday's 34-14 loss to the Bills.

Nelson has racked up 44 tackles through eight games this season, but the Raiders' starting free safety has yet to force a single turnover. As a result, his IDP value has been somewhat limited while Oakland has unexpectedly struggled to a 3-5 start. Nelson will look to snag the first interception of his 2017 campaign in Week 9 against the Dolphins, who plan to be led by quarterback Jay Cutler (ribs).

Jalen Richard
News
Richard failed to earn a single touch on 15 offensive snaps played during Sunday's 26-15 loss to the Chiefs.

Richard logged more snaps than fellow backup running back DeAndre Washington for the first time since Week 9, but such a feat didn't translate to production as the former failed to record neither a rushing attempt nor reception. Richard's lack of involvement in the Raiders offense doesn't bode well for his Week 15 outlook against the Cowboys, though he figures to continue serving as the team's punt returner.

Mario Edwards
News
Edwards (ankle) was ruled out for Sunday's game against the Cowboys, Paul Gutierrez of ESPN.com reports.

Edwards sustained the injury in Sunday's loss to the Chiefs and barely missed any snaps, but did not participate in practice this week. Jihad Ward and Denico Autry should see increased snap counts at defensive end Sunday, although Autry is questionable with a hand injury.

Injury
Ankle - Out for Week 15 vs. Dallas
Khalil Mack
News
Mack recorded six tackles (five solo) and a sack in Sunday's 26-15 loss to the Chiefs.

Mack extended his sack streak to four games in Week 14, bringing his sack total to 8.5 through 13 games. He logged 11 sacks during his Defensive Player of the Year campaign in 2016, so he'll have a real chance at surpassing that mark throughout the Raiders' final three contests. Mack's next test comes against a Cowboys offensive line that ranks in the top 10 in terms of sacks allowed, having given up just 25 on the season.

Antonio Hamilton
News
The Raiders activated Hamilton (knee) from injured reserve Friday, Scott Bair of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

Hamilton tore the meniscus in his knee during the Raiders' Week 4 loss to the Broncos, but progressed as expected in his rehab and will offer aid to Oakland's secondary over the final three contests. It's likely that Hamilton will see most of his snaps on special teams, as was the case before he hit IR.

Nicholas Morrow
News
Morrow is expected to occupy a starting role at weak-side linebacker for the remainder of the season following Cory James' (knee) placement on injured reserve, Scott Bair of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

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.

Jihad Ward
News
Ward (foot) was a full participant at Wednesday's practice.

Ward has missed nine straight games due to a lingering foot injury but now looks ready to return to action. Whether Ward is activated as a part of the Raiders' 53-man roster Sunday remains to be seen, but he at least appears healthy enough to play if called upon.

David Sharpe
News
Sharpe (foot) wasn't listed on Wednesday's injury report.

Sharpe was listed previously for precautionary reasons but this clears him to return to his reserve role for the Raiders.

Dexter McDonald
News
McDonald logged 10 tackles (five solo) and one pass defensed during Sunday's win over Miami.

McDonald played 67 defensive snaps for the second consecutive week, as injuries to David Amerson (foot) and Gareon Conley (shin) have thinned the Raiders' secondary. They'll have a chance to further their recoveries during the team's upcoming bye, but McDonald could see an increased role in Week 11 against Tom Brady and the Patriots.

Shalom Luani
News
The Raiders selected Luani in the seventh round of the 2017 NFL Draft, 221st overall.

Luani is a former soccer player who showed a bit of a center fielder skill set at Washington State, intercepting four passes each of the last two years. Oakland is set at safety, so he'll try to make a special teams impact.

Eddie Vanderdoes
News
Vanderdoes (knee) is still practicing with the first-team defense, The San Jose Mercury News reports.

Vanderdoes has been listed as a starter on the unofficial depth chart since day one. The 2017 third-round pick was dealing with a minor knee injury last week, but played in the Raiders' first preseason game against the Cardinals and recorded one tackle.

Breon Borders
No Updates
David Amerson
News
Amerson (foot) is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against the Cowboys, Paul Gutierrez of ESPN.com reports.

Amerson started off the week as a limited participant in practice, but failed to progress beyond that, as he was held out of sessions Thursday and Friday. With Amerson on track to miss his seventh game in a row, TJ Carrie, Sean Smith and Dexter McDonald will act as the Raiders' primary cornerbacks.

Injury
Foot - Did Not Practice on Friday. Doubtful for Week 15 vs. Dallas
Brady Sheldon
No Updates
Shilique Calhoun
News
Calhoun signed a contract with the Raiders on Saturday, Michael Gehlken of the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports.

Calhoun has been on the Raiders' practice squad since being waived at the end of the preseason. The 25-year-old could potentially see more defensive opportunities with Cory James (knee) questionable for Sunday and Marquel Lee out with an ankle injury.

Jared Cook
News
Cook (wrist) practiced fully Friday and doesn't carry an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Cowboys, David Helman of the Cowboys' official site reports.

Cook's wrist injury limited in the Raiders' first two practices of the week, but it shouldn't hinder him in the Week 15 matchup. Though he failed to take advantage of the absences of top wideouts Michael Crabtree (suspension) and Amari Cooper (ankle) in the Raiders' Week 13 win over the Giants -- catching one of five targets for nine yards -- Cook capitalized when Cooper departed early in last week's loss to the Chiefs. The tight end finished the contest with five catches for 75 yards and a touchdown on six targets, and could be positioned well for an encore performance Sunday with Cooper already being ruled out. Along with Cook and Crabtree, depth wideouts Seth Roberts, Cordarrelle Patterson and Johnny Holton should benefit from Cooper's absence to some extent.

Connor Cook
News
Cook (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Titans.

Cook faced an uphill battle for the primary backup spot behind Derek Carr throughout the offseason, and the Raiders have elected to dress EJ Manuel in Week 1. Cook's inexperience certainly played a factor in the decision, while Manuel appeared in 28 games through four seasons with the Bills before heading to Oakland.

Sean Smith
News
Smith (neck/shoulder) is active for Sunday's game against the Redskins.

Smith was able to log two full practice sessions and was trending towards playing in Sunday's game all week. He will draw the start at cornerback opposite T.J. Carrie.

T.J. Carrie
News
The Raiders have listed WR Denarius Moore, WR Vincent Brown, CB Chimdi Chekwa, CB T.J. Carrie, G Tony Bergstrom, T Menelik Watson and DT Stacy McGee as inactive Week 17 against the Broncos.

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. 

Fadol Brown
No Updates
Vadal Alexander
No Updates
Michael Crabtree
News
Crabtree caught seven passes on 13 targets for 60 yards in Sunday's 26-15 loss to the Chiefs.

Crabtree's target total marked a season best in his return from a one-game suspension, while fellow starting wide receiver Amari Cooper missed a majority of the contest due to an aggravated left ankle injury. Crabtree's increased involvement didn't translate to fantasy prosperity, however, as he averaged just 4.6 yards per target and etched a long reception of 13 yards. If Cooper is forced to miss additional time, Crabtree could be in line for a similar level of volume in Week 15 against the Cowboys, especially if the Raiders fall behind early again.

Giorgio Tavecchio
News
Tavecchio did not attempt a field goal but made his lone extra-point try in Sunday's 26-15 loss to the Chiefs.

Tavecchio has made just one of two field-goal attempts over the past four games, severely restricting his fantasy utility.

Marshawn Lynch
News
Lynch rushed seven times for 61 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's loss to the Chiefs, adding one reception on two targets for three yards.

Lynch notched just eight touches as the Raiders played from behind for a majority of Sunday's contest, while quarterback Derek Carr shouldered the load with 41 passing attempts. Despite his limited volume, Lynch managed to find the end zone on a 22-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter, also averaging a healthy 8.7 yards per carry on his seven rushing attempts. He's now scored five touchdowns in Oakland's past five games, so he'll look to maintain the momentum in Week 15 against the Cowboys.

Gareon Conley
News
Conley (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.

Injury
Shin - Injured Reserve
Gabe Jackson
News
Jackson (ankle) is officially active for Sunday's game against the Giants.

Jackson was a limited participant in practice this week but will attempt to play against the Giants. Jon Feliciano would likely step in if Jackson is forced to miss any snaps Sunday.

Aldon Smith
News
Smith (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.

Injury
Suspension - Suspended indefinitely
Jamize Olawale
News
Olawale (ankle) is active for Sunday's game against the Chiefs.

Olawale was limited Thursday and Friday, but he'll be able to use his run-blocking abilities Sunday. The fullback is rarely given the ball, though, with no more than five touches in a game this season.

Keith McGill
News
McGill (foot) isn't listed on the Raiders' injury report heading into Sunday's matchup with the Ravens.

The foot injury limited McGill's participation during Wednesday's practice, but he was upgraded to a full participant Thursday and Friday and looks like he'll be an option for the Raiders in Week 5. McGill has appeared in one game this season -- the team's Week 3 loss to the Redskins -- logging all 27 of his snaps on special teams.

Injury
Knee - Limited Practice on Friday. Questionable for Week 15 vs. Dallas
Darius Latham
News
The Raiders promoted Latham from their practice squad Wednesday, Michael Gehlken of the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports.

Latham was waived by the Raiders earlier in December after appearing in just one game for the team on the season. The team was able to retain the 23-year-old on its practice squad, where Latham apparently performed well enough to warrant the promotion back to the 53-man roster. He'll likely serve in a depth role along the defensive line throughout his stint in Oakland.

Justin Ellis
News
Ellis made three tackles (three solo) in his season debut Sunday against the Saints.

Ellis was presented with many opportunities to stop the Saints' rushing attack, as they ran the ball just 22 times throughout the entire game. He should have a bigger role Week 2 against running back Devonta Freeman and the Falcons.

DeAndre Washington
News
Washington rushed four times for nine yards and added one reception on two targets for 10 yards in Sunday's 26-15 loss to the Chiefs.

Washington logged just 14 offensive snaps for a third consecutive week as starter Marshawn Lynch led the Raiders' backfield with 61 yards and a touchdown on seven carries. Washington has now averaged less than 4.0 yards per carry in four straight games, while his fantasy relevance remains limited to deeper leagues heading into a Week 15 matchup against the Cowboys.

Derek Carr
News
Carr completed 24 of 41 pass attempts for 211 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 26-15 loss to the Chiefs. He also threw two interceptions and took three sacks.

Carr failed to take advantage of Kansas City's vulnerable pass defense as the fourth-year quarterback averaged just 5.1 yards per attempt and struggled with his accuracy. The Raiders were without starting wide receiver Amari Cooper (ankle) for a majority of the game, leading to a season-high 13 targets for Michael Crabtree as he hauled in seven passes. Playing from behind throughout the entire contest, Oakland rushed just 11 times while Carr was asked to handle much of the load on offense. Other than a 29-yard touchdown strike to tight end Jared Cook during garbage time in the fourth quarter, Carr would probably like to forget about this performance heading into his Week 15 matchup against the Cowboys on Sunday night.

James Cowser
News
Cowser has been signed to the Raiders' active roster, Adam Caplan of ESPN reports.

Cowser's signing will add depth to the Raiders' pass-rushing depth.

Sebastian Janikowski
News
Janikowski (back) won't return this season, Michael Gehlken of the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports.

Having used one of their designated-to-return spots to activate rookie safety Obi Melifonwu from injured reserve Nov. 4, the Raiders tabbed Antonio Hamilton (knee) for the other Tuesday. Janikowski will thus remain on IR for the rest of the 2017 season as he recovers from an injured disc in his back. In his absence, Giorgio Tavecchio will handle kicking duties for the final five games of the campaign.

Injury
Back - Injured Reserve
Erik Harris
News
Harris signed a contract with the Raiders on Tuesday.

Harris spent the 2016 season with the Saints, but only notched one tackle in four appearances. He provides the Raiders with extra depth at safety in the wake of second-round rookie Obi Melifonwu (knee) landing on injured reserve.

Denver Kirkland
News
Kirkland (knee) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday.

Kirkland suffered an unspecified knee injury in the preseason opener and wasn't in line to be available for the next few weeks.

Injury
Knee - Injured Reserve
Johnny Holton
News
Holton caught two passes on four targets for 18 yards in Sunday's 26-15 loss to the Chiefs.

Holton has now logged seven receptions in the last three weeks after catching just two total passes throughout the Raiders' first 10 games of the season. He was on the field for 44 percent of the team's offensive snaps on Sunday, due in large part to starting receiver Amari Cooper re-injuring his left ankle in the first half. Despite losing a fumble against the Chiefs, Holton could see a slightly increased role once again in Week 15 against the Cowboys if Cooper is sidelined or remains limited by the injury.

Karl Joseph
News
Joseph had three solo tackles, one pass breakup and one interception in Sunday's loss to the Chiefs.

Joseph's production has dropped off in the last five games, as he's averaged just 4.5 stops per contest during that span as compared to 6.6 tackles over his first seven contests. He'll likely have to rely on tackles for fantasy value in Week 15 against the Cowboys, since QB Dak Prescott has protected the ball well this campaign.

Jordan Simmons
No Updates
Donald Penn
News
Penn signed a two-year, $21 million contract extension with the Raiders on Friday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

If Penn plays well in 2017, he'll be guaranteed an average of $10 million through 2019. The Pro Bowl tackle will be 36 years old when his contract expires, so the Raiders are taking a risk that Penn's health won't waver. He's shown he's a key piece of Oakland's offensive front, though, as he only allowed one sack in 2016.

Obi Melifonwu
News
The Raiders placed Melifonwu (hip) on injured reserve Friday, Scott Bair of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

It's the second IR stint of the season for Melifonwu, who was one of two players the Raiders designated for a return after he missed half the campaign while recovering from knee surgery. The second-round pick ended up providing just seven tackles across five games during his rookie season before undergoing surgery Thursday to address a persistent hip injury. Cornerback Antonio Hamilton (knee) was activated from IR in a corresponding move to take Melifonwu's spot on the 53-man roster.

Injury
Hip - Injured Reserve
Cory James
News
The Raiders placed James (knee) was on injured reserve Wednesday, Vic Tafur of The Athletic Bay Area reports.

James missed the last two games with a torn meniscus and had deferred arthroscopic knee surgery in hopes of playing through the injury, but will now require the procedure after failing to demonstrate much progress, according to Michael Gehlken of the Las Vegas Review-Journal. James' shutdown likely paves the way for Nicholas Morrow, who has racked up 16 tackles over the past two weeks, to continue seeing the bulk of the snaps at weakside linebacker.

Injury
Knee - Meniscus - Injured Reserve
James Stone
No Updates
Denico Autry
News
Autry, a restricted free agent, signed his contract tender with the Raiders on Monday, Matt Kawahara of The Sacramento Bee reports.

Autry played significant snaps for the Raiders in 2016 and racked up 2.5 sacks in the process. However, he could be in store for a major decrease in playing time if Mario Edwards is able to stay healthy this upcoming season.

Injury
Hand - Limited Practice on Friday. Questionable for Week 15 vs. Dallas
Marquel Lee
News
Lee (ankle) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Dolphins.

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.

Elijah Hood
News
The Raiders signed Hood to their practice squad Wednesday, Michael Gehlken of the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports.

Oakland had previously promoted Hood to the active roster during Marshawn Lynch's (suspension) absence for the Week 8 win over the Chiefs, waiving the rookie shortly after the contest. Now back with the organization, Hood will likely remain on the practice squad unless one of Lynch or fellow running backs Jalen Richard and DeAndre Washington are forced to miss action down the road.

Isaac Whitney
News
Whitney was promoted to the Raiders' active roster Tuesday, Michael Gehlken of the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports.

The undrafted rookie out of USC will make his NFL debut this Sunday against the Giants after spending the preseason with Raiders before being signed to the practice squad prior to Week 1. Don't expect Whitney to see many offensive reps, as he will be the fifth wideout on the depth chart -- but with Michael Crabtree suspended and Amari Cooper (concussion, ankle) not at full strength, Whitney could get an opportunity at some point during the contest.

Jon Condo
No Updates
Kelechi Osemele
News
Osemele (wrist/ankle) participated fully in practice Thursday.

Osemele was a limited participant on Wednesday, so signs now point to him being ready for the Raiders' Week 1 matchup with Denver.

Marshall Newhouse
News
Newhouse (hip, quad) was a full participant in Thursday's practice and is in line to play Sunday against the Broncos.

Newhouse will return to his role as Oakland's starting right tackle.

Keon Hatcher
No Updates
Tevin Mitchel
News
Mitchel (abdomen) was placed on injured reserve Thursday.

Mitchel is heading into his third NFL season and has yet to play a regular-season snap. When he gets healthy, he'll likely have a chance to sign onto a practice squad elsewhere.

Injury
Abdomen - Questionable for Week 15 vs. Dallas
Marquette King
No Updates
Amari Cooper
News
Cooper (ankle) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Cowboys, Paul Gutierrez of ESPN.com reports.

With Cooper out of the mix this weekend, the likes of Seth Roberts, Cordarrelle Patterson and Johnny Holton should be more involved in the Oakland passing attack, but fellow starting wideout Michael Crabtree and tight end Jared Cook profile as the higher-percentage fantasy options among the team's pass catchers in Week 15. Though Cooper will be sidelined for the second time in three games with the sprained left knee, the Raiders are hopeful that he'll be ready to contribute over the team's final two contests.

Injury
Ankle - Did Not Practice on Friday. Out for Week 15 vs. Dallas
Clive Walford
News
Walford (concussion) was ruled out for Sunday's game against the Cowboys, Paul Gutierrez of ESPN.com reports.

Walford suffered a concussion in Sunday's loss to the Chiefs and did not practice this week. The 26-year-old will hope to clear the concussion protocol and make a return against the Eagles in Week 16.

Injury
Concussion - Did Not Practice on Friday. Out for Week 15 vs. Dallas
Jylan Ware
News
Ware missed multiple practices due to a concussion but has since returned to training camp, Michael Gehlken of the Las Vegas Review-Journal.

Ware appears to have made a full recovery from his concussion symptoms and is back at practice. He should be a full participant through the rest of preseason barring any setbacks.

Pharaoh Brown
No Updates
EJ Manuel
News
Manuel will start Sunday's game against the Ravens.

Usual starter Derek Carr suffered a transverse process fracture in his back last week, and he's inactive Sunday. Carr is targeting a Week 6 return to action, so this could be a one-week assignment for Manuel. He's a speculative fantasy play in Week 5, but working in his favor is that the Raiders will welcome starting wideout Michael Crabtree back to their lineup after he missed last Sunday's contest with a chest injury.

Joby Saint Fleur
No Updates
Bruce Irvin
News
Irvin recorded four solo tackles and two sacks in Sunday's 26-15 loss to the Chiefs.

Irvin has been on a tear throughout the Raiders' past five games, racking up 22 tackles (19 solo), 5.5 sacks and three forced fumbles during this impressive stretch. The 30-year-old outside linebacker currently has 7.5 sacks through 13 games, the most in a single season for Irvin since posting eight quarterback takedowns during his rookie campaign.

Xavier Woodson-Luster
News
Woodson-Luster signed a contract with the Raiders on Tuesday.

Woodson-Luster, an undrafted rookie out of Arkansas State, originally signed with the Raiders in May, but didn't survive roster cuts this past weekend. However, the team has since placed two players on injured reserve, creating an opening for Woodson-Luster to join the 53-man roster.

Cordarrelle Patterson
News
Patterson could take on increased offensive snaps in Sunday's game against the Cowboys with Amari Cooper (ankle) ruled out for the contest, Paul Gutierrez of ESPN.com reports.

When Cooper sat out the Week 13 win over the Giants before returning to last week's loss to the Chiefs and exiting early after aggravating the ankle issue, Patterson was one of a few wideouts called upon to fill Cooper's spot. Though he found less success against Kansas City (three catches for eight yards on six targets), Patterson proved to be a big-play threat against New York, finishing that contest with a season-high 97 yards on four receptions. It's worth noting that Michael Crabtree was suspended for the Giants game, so it's still expected that he'll rank as quarterback Derek Carr's top target in Week 15. Even so, Cooper's absence will create more targets to go around for Patterson and tight end Jared Cook, and perhaps Seth Roberts and Johnny Holton to a lesser extent.

News
Feliciano has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Chiefs due to a concussion.

Feliciano's absence in Week 14 leaves the Raiders without a ton of depth on the offensive line, but all five starters head into the matchup at full health. Feliciano will need to clear the league's concussion protocol before potentially returning in Week 15 against the Cowboys.

Seth Roberts
News
Roberts caught three passes on as many targets for 24 yards in Sunday's 26-15 loss to the Chiefs.

Roberts led the Raiders' receiving corps in offensive snaps played (55 of 61), but was held to just three targets despite Amari Cooper missing a majority of the contest after re-injuring his left ankle in the first half. Roberts could be in line for additional looks from quarterback Derek Carr in Week 15 against the Cowboys if Cooper remains sidelined, but Roberts would still be a somewhat risky fantasy option as the slot receiver has yet to surpass 50 yards receiving in a single game this season.
