Position Listing
Rodney Hudson
No Updates
Jaydon Mickens
No Updates
Lee Smith
News
Smith caught two passes on as many targets for 25 yards and a touchdown during Saturday's preseason loss to the Rams.

Smith started alongside fellow tight end Jared Cook, who caught just one pass for 16 yards while playing five more snaps. Primarily used as a blocker, don't expect Smith to out-produce Cook on a regular basis as the latter figures to serve as one of quarterback Derek Carr's top targets behind Amari Cooper and Michael Crabtree. The Raiders may elect to continue starting both tight ends, but Cook garners much more fantasy relevance than Smith.

Chris Humes
No Updates
Reggie Nelson
News
Nelson racked up five tackles (five solo) during Saturday's wild-card loss to the Texans.

Nelson hadn't reached the five-tackle mark in the Raiders' previous four contests, but he was able to due so in Oakland's first and only game of the playoffs.

Jalen Richard
News
Richard had three carries for 18 yards in Saturday's preseason game against the Rams.

Richard didn't get any work until both Marshawn Lynch and DeAndre Washington were done for the night. Washington has operated as the second-string back throughout training camp and the first two weeks of the preseason, but that doesn't mean Richard won't also stay involved in the offense with a chance-of-pace role, as was the case last season. Washington's skill as a receiver does make him the favorite for passing-down work, which is when Lynch figures to regularly come off the field.

Mario Edwards
News
Edwards (undisclosed) was removed from the Non-Football Injury list and participated in the Raiders' practice Thursday.

Edwards makes his training camp debut Thursday as he comes off a disappointing 2016 campaign in which he played just two games due to a nagging hip injury. His availability boosts the Raiders' pass rush alongside Khalil Mack (back) and Bruce Irvin, while Edwards figures to start at defensive end barring any setbacks.

Khalil Mack
News
Mack (undisclosed) returned to practice Tuesday, Michael Gehlken of the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports.

Mack was sidelined all of last week with an undisclosed injury and did not play in last Saturday's preseason opener, though he did suit up for the contest. The Raiders likely wouldn't have let their defensive pillar participate in practice if he was at risk of further harm, so it can safely be assumed that Mack's in the clear moving forward.

Antonio Hamilton
No Updates
Nicholas Morrow
No Updates
David Sharpe
News
Sharpe was seen wearing a walking boot following Thursday's practice and subsequently watched Friday's from the sideline, Scott Bair of NBCSportsBayArea.com reports.

Sharpe is reportedly "banged up," so the Raiders are presumably giving him a little time to heal up. The fourth-round pick projects to provide depth behind Donald Penn and Austin Howard this season.

Injury
Lower Leg - Questionable for Week 1 at Tennessee
Jihad Ward
News
Ward (foot) was taken off the PUP list after passing a physical Monday, freelance NFL reporter Adam Caplan reports.

Ward underwent minor foot surgery in June but has been out of a walking boot since early August. The 23-year-old had an up-and-down rookie season in 2016 and will likely play a backup role in the Raiders' defensive line rotation to start the season.

IK Enemkpali
News
Enemkpali signed a one-year deal with the Raiders on Thursday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Enemkpali hasn't played a snap since the 2015 season, as a torn ACL knocked him out for all of last season. This means he'll have to prove he still has what it takes to be a linebacker in the league, and Enemkpali was likely just brought in for extra competition with the chance to win special teams snaps.

Dexter McDonald
No Updates
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.

Ian Silberman
No Updates
LaTroy Lewis
No Updates
Breon Borders
No Updates
David Amerson
News
Amerson recorded two tackles (one solo) during Saturday's wild-card loss to the Texans.

Amerson notched just five total tackles and zero passes defensed throughout the Raiders' past three games, so he'll enter the offseason with little positive momentum.

Brady Sheldon
No Updates
Shilique Calhoun
News
Calhoun is about 20 pounds heavier than he was at the end of 2016, Eddie Paskal of the Raiders' official site reports.

After rehabbing the knee injury that caused him to finish his rookie season on injured reserve, Calhoun -- who checked in at 251 pounds at the 2016 NFL Combine -- looks to have taken full advantage of the Raiders' offseason workout program and likely weighs around 270 pounds at this juncture. It'll be interesting to see if the added weight will aid him in his competition with Jelani Jenkins to secure the starting outside linebacker gig opposite Bruce Irvin, but in any event the second-year Michigan State product at least appears in line for a significant role within the Raiders' linebacking corps this season and should have a great chance to improve upon his nine total tackles from 2016.

Jared Cook
News
Cook hauled in one pass for 16 yards on one target during Saturday's preseason loss to the Rams.

Cook drew the start and played 15 snaps during the first half of the Raiders' second preseason contest, while Lee Smith also started as the team deployed a two-TE formation. Smith is used primarily as a blocker, but actually out-produced Cook with two catches on two targets for 25 yards and a touchdown. Cook's volume in the aerial attack could be slightly impacted if the Raiders continue to start both tight ends, though he's clearly the experienced pass-catcher out of the duo.

George Atkinson
News
Atkinson was claimed off waivers by the Raiders on Saturday, Michael Gehlken of the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports.

After being waived by the Browns earlier in the week, Atkinson will return to Oakland, where he started his career in 2014. Atkinson will have a tough hill to climb in terms of breaking camp with the team, but he was very close to landing on Oakland's 53-man roster last season. He'll likely have to be a standout special teamer in order to remain with the club.

Kareem Are
No Updates
Tyrell Adams
News
Adams has been signed by the Raiders, Adam Caplan of ESPN reports.

Adams' signing comes as the Oakland is dealing with injuries to linebackers Perry Riley and Shilique Calhoun. He will provide depth for the Raiders along their front seven.

Najee Harris
No Updates
Paul Boyette
No Updates
Connor Cook
News
Cook worked behind fellow quarterbacks Derek Carr and EJ Manuel during Saturday's preseason loss to the Rams, completing 9-of-15 passes for 83 yards and a touchdown.

Cook still has a solid chance at making the Raiders' final roster if he remains behind Manuel in the competition to back-up Carr, having outperformed Manuel during the team's second preseason game. Manuel has the edge in terms of experience, while Cook struggled mightily as a rookie in his first NFL start against the Texans during Oakland's season-ending playoff loss in early January. Cook projects to be the second quarterback off the bench once again during the Raiders' upcoming preseason tilt versus the Cowboys.

Gabe Holmes
News
Holmes (ankle) has returned to full health, NBC Sports Bay Area's Scott Bair reports.

Holmes missed the entire 2016 season after suffering a severe high-ankle sprain in training camp. Although he's now recovered from the injury, Holmes looks set to enter the 2017 campaign buried on the depth chart under tight ends Jared Cook, Clive Walford, and Lee Smith.

K.J. Brent
No Updates
Sean Smith
News
Smith was charged with assault on Thursday, Scott Bair of CSN Bay Area reports.

It's unclear exactly how the charges against Smith will impact his ability to play this season. At this point, his status is merely in question, since it isn't clear yet how things will pan out.

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
Kenneth Durden
No Updates
Vadal Alexander
No Updates
Michael Crabtree
News
Crabtree caught one pass on two targets for 13 yards and a touchdown while playing 16 snaps during Saturday's preseason loss to the Rams.

Crabtree made the start at receiver across from Amari Cooper during the Raiders' second game of the preseason, also hauling in a touchdown pass from Derek Carr in the early stages of the second quarter. Cooper's production on just one more snap than Crabtree included three receptions and 46 yards on four targets, but he failed to find the end zone. Crabtree's status as the team's No. 2 receiver and red-zone threat remains solidified with the third preseason contest approaching on Saturday against the Cowboys.

Marcus McWilson
No Updates
Giorgio Tavecchio
News
Tavecchio signed a contract with the Raiders on Wednesday.

Tavecchio has spent time with the Packers, Lions and Raiders since 2013, but he's never made an active roster. The signing makes the current offseason the fourth straight that Tavecchio has spent with Oakland. He'll provide competition for Sebastian Janikowski, who will again be the frontrunner for the team's placekicking job.

Marshawn Lynch
News
Lynch had two carries for 10 yards in Saturday's preseason game against the Rams.

Lynch's Raiders debut only lasted four snaps, which was how long the team needed to score a touchdown on its opening drive. He showed nice burst on a six-yard run to start the series, though he might've had a longer gain if he'd hit a cutback lane with the same authority. While he could see a bit more work in the third week of the preseason, Lynch figures to get less playing time than the rest of the starters once again. The Raiders want to keep the 31-year-old healthy while also evaluating DeAndre Washington and Jalen Richard with the first-team offense. Washington worked ahead of Richard for a second straight week, though the latter enjoyed a more efficient outing.

John Crockett
News
Crockett (shoulder) signed with the Raiders on Friday.

Crockett joins Oakland after spending his first two years with the Packers. Although the undrafted tailback rushed nine times for 21 yards as a rookie, he spent the entirety of last season on Green Bay's injured/reserve list. The former North Dakota State standout will now hope to latch on with the Raiders by impressing during training camp.

Ishmael Zamora
No Updates
Gareon Conley
News
Conley (shin) will not face charges stemming from an April sexual assault allegation made against him, NFL.com reports.

Conley's case was investigated over recent months before a Cuyahoga County Grand Jury ruled Monday that charges would not be filed. The 22-year-old slid to the 24th pick of this year's first round amid the allegations made against him, but now Conley will be clear to resume his rookie year without fear of punishment from the legal system or NFL. Currently on the Raiders' PUP list while dealing with shin splints, Conley is a big cornerback who figures to complement Oakland's starting tandem of David Amerson and Sean Smith early on.

Injury
Shin - Physically Unable to Perform
Gabe Jackson
News
Jackson signed a five-year, $56 million extension with the Raiders on Thursday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Jackson has been a consistent force along the offensive line for Oakland since being drafted by the team in 2014. He's started in 44 games for the team over his three seasons, including all 16 games each of the past two seasons. His extension will keep him under contract with the team through the 2022 season.

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 gained six yards on one carry during Saturday's wild-card loss to the Texans.

Olawale was given a rushing attempt for the first time in the Raiders' last seven games, while Latavius Murray, Jalen Richard, and DeAndre Washington continued to lead the way out of the backfield.

Keith McGill
News
McGill (foot) suffered a Jones fracture Saturday and will require surgery, Michael Gehlken of the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports.

McGill may not be out the entire season, but he should miss a signficant amount of time. His absence is a blow to the Raiders' special teams unit, not to mention their depth in the secondary.

Injury
Foot - Out for Week 1 at Tennessee
Chauncey Briggs
No Updates
Darius Latham
News
Latham (ankle) is active for Sunday's game against the Chargers.

Latham was limited in practice this week, but will be good to go after missing the Raiders' last two games. He will provide depth along Oakland's defensive line.

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 had four carries for 14 yards in Saturday's preseason game against the Rams.

After Marshawn Lynch made a brief appearance for the opening drive, Washington played the next two series and then handed things over to Jalen Richard, who had three carries for 18 yards while finishing out the first half. Washington has worked ahead of Richard through the first two weeks of the preseason and much of training camp, but there's a good chance the two backs will split whatever touches Lynch leaves behind. The backup work likely will include passing down snaps, which should work to Washington's advantage.

Derek Carr
News
Carr completed seven of nine passes for 100 yards, with two touchdowns and an interception on three drives in Saturday's preseason game against the Rams.

Carr found backup tight end Lee Smith down the seam for a 19-yard score on the opening drive, then watched Michael Crabtree nearly break a defender's ankles while turning a short hitch route into a 13-yard touchdown two drives later. The fourth-year QB did throw an ugly interception between the two touchdown drives, but it didn't spoil an otherwise stellar showing from the first-team offense. Amari Cooper caught three of four targets for 46 yards, with 31 of those coming on a jump ball into double coverage on a 3rd-and-10.

Oni Omoile
No Updates
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 didn't attempt a field goal and converted two of two PATs during the Raiders' 27-14 postseason loss to the Texans on Saturday.

Perfectly coinciding with Derek Carr's (broken leg) absence, Janikowski didn't attempt a field goal in any of the Raiders' last three games as the offense simply couldn't move the ball on a consistent basis. Despite this sudden dropoff in usage, Janikowski still finished the 2016 campaign with the 10th-most field goals in the league and could make for an attractive fantasy option on an up-and-coming Oakland squad in 2017.

Denver Kirkland
News
Kirkland could be in for a long absence due to his leg injury, Vic Tafur of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

The specifics on Kirklands' injury are unclear, but head coach Jack Del Rio acknowledged that the offensive lineman could be out a while. One of the top backups in Oakland, Kirkland's injury reduces the team's depth along the line. Chauncey Briggs figures to see extra reps as long as Briggs is sidelined.

Injury
Leg - Questionable for Week 1 at Tennessee
Jelani Jenkins
News
Jenkins signed a contract with the Raiders on Monday, Scott Bair of CSN California reports.

Jenkins had just 29 tackles and one pass defensed with the Dolphins in 2016 while also missing seven games due to a knee injury. When healthy, he's a starting caliber linebacker, and he's expected to compete with Tyrell Adams for the Raiders starting weakside linebacker position in 2017.

Johnny Holton
News
Holton was unable to catch his only target in Sunday's regular season finale against the Broncos.

Holton was also handed a rushing attempt, but he failed to gain a single yard. He finishes the 2016 regular season with just two receptions on three targets for 34 yards in 15 games. He also rushed for 43 yards on six carries to go along with a lost fumble. It was a bit of an uneventful rookie season for Holton, but he has two years left on his contract with the Raiders so he'll look to prove his worth down the road.

Karl Joseph
News
Joseph (toe) is active for Saturday's game in Houston.

The Raiders didn't have the services of their 2016 first-rounder for the final four outings of the regular season due to an injured left big toe. After turning in limited showings in practice this week, Joseph will return for the first time since Week 13 as the starting strong safety, from which he racked up 60 tackles (44 solo), one interception, and one fumble recovery prior to the recent respite.

Jordan Simmons
No Updates
Cooper Helfet
News
Helfet (undisclosed) was removed from the NFI list after passing a physical Monday, freelance NFL reporter Adam Caplan reports.

Helfet had been on the NFI list since late July with no specifics ever offered on the injury. The 28-year-old has a lot of ground to make up to earn playing time and is unlikely to be a major factor in the Raiders' passing game if he survives roster cuts.

Obi Melifonwu
News
Melifonwu (undisclosed) returned to practice Tuesday, Paul Gutierrez of ESPN.com reports.

Melifonwu had been sidelined for just over a week. Though he only did light work, it was a positive sign for the second-round pick. He'll look to return to practice in full soon and play in the team's next preseason game, Saturday against the Rams.

Cory James
News
James (shoulder) is active for Thursday's Week 14 matchup with Kansas City.

James was limited in practice all week but isn't expected to be limited on Thursday. He'll start at linebacker alongside Bruce Irvin and Malcolm Smith once again.

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.

Marquel Lee
News
Lee has earned first-team reps in practice for three consecutive days after being promoted during the Raiders' training camp debut Saturday, Scott Bair of CSNBayArea.com reports.

Lee, who's a 2017 fifth-round draft pick out of Wake Forest, spent much of his time with the second unit during the offseason program. Oakland's extremely inexperienced inside linebacker corps will allow for Lee to compete for a starting job, however, and so far he appears to have a jump on the competition. If the Raiders elect not to bring in a veteran free agent at the position, Lee has a shot at starting Week 1, barring any setbacks.

Heeney (undisclosed) was placed on the Active/Non-Football Injury list Tuesday, Jimmy Durkin of the Mercury News reports.

Heeney spent 12 games on injured reserve last season due to a torn ligament in his ankle. In the four games he did play, he recorded 15 tackles. When he is healthy again, he should be the favorite to win the middle linebacker job in Oakland with only Cory James and 2017 fifth-round pick Marquel Lee to compete with. Keep an eye out for the talented linebacker's recovery as he heads into his third season.

Johnson agreed to a deal with the Raiders on Friday, Jimmy Durkin of the Bay Area News reports.

Johnson last took the field during the regular season with the Patriots for one game in 2015 and was most recently waived by the Redskins in May. The 26-year-old figures to be a long shot for the final roster, but he'll compete for a spot providing depth at linebacker.

Kelechi Osemele
News
Osemele (hand) was dressed for practice Wednesday but participated in a limited fashion, Paul Gutierrez of ESPN.com reports.

Osemele is still nursing a sore hand, but it appears as though the Raiders are easing the left guard back into training camp. Expect the team to reaming cautious with the All-Pro lineman through the next couple of weeks of training camp.

Amari Cooper
News
Cooper caught three of four targets for 46 yards in Saturday's preseason game against the Rams.

Cooper showed no signs of the leg injury that caused him to miss at least six practice over the past couple weeks. He arguably had the best play in a first half full of highlights, high-pointing a Derek Carr pass in triple coverage to pick up 31 yards on a 3rd-and-10. Cooper also was the only player to draw more than two targets while Carr was in the game.

Clive Walford
News
Walford failed to catch his lone target during Saturday's preseason loss to the Rams.

Walford was on the field for 15 offensive snaps during the Raiders' second preseason tilt, appearing behind starters Lee Smith and Jared Cook. Walford's positioning at No. 3 on the depth chart at tight end appears to be secure, though he could end up seeing more targets than Smith, who primarily serves as a blocker. With Cook healthy, expect Walford's fantasy impact to be minimal.

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 a practice. He should be a full participant through the rest of preseason barring any setbacks.

EJ Manuel
News
Manuel served as the No. 2 quarterback for the Raiders during Saturday's preseason loss to the Rams, completing 3-of-9 pass attempts for 16 yards.

Manuel appears to be leading the backup quarterback competition in Oakland, having worked as the No. 2 quarterback behind Derek Carr on Saturday with Connor Cook last off the bench. Manuel's underwhelming performance didn't help his case, however, while Cook completed 9-of-15 passes for 83 yards and a score. Manuel figures to remain serving as the Raiders' primary backup at QB, but Cook could make a late push given his solid recent showing.

Bruce Irvin
News
Irvin (undisclosed) was removed from the Non-Football Injury list and participated in Thursday's practice.

Irvin's training camp debut finally came Thursday, but the Raiders may elect to ease the pass rusher back into action as they hope to preserve his long-term health. Defensive end Mario Edwards (undisclosed) also returned Thursday, so the Raiders defense is starting to take its shape.

Cordarrelle Patterson
News
Patterson caught one of two targets for seven yards while playing 13 snaps during Saturday's preseason loss to the Rams.

Patterson also appeared for a pair of snaps on special teams during the Raiders' second preseason tilt, though he never had the chance to return a kick or punt. He'll continue to compete with slot receiver Seth Roberts for targets in the Raiders' aerial attack behind Amari Cooper, Michael Crabtree and tight end Jared Cook, but it's worth noting that Roberts was sidelined Saturday with an undisclosed reason. At this point, it appears Patterson would be the primary candidate to start on the outside if either Cooper or Crabtree were to go down with an injury.

Jon Feliciano
News
Feliciano (knee) has returned to practice, Eddie Paskal of the Raiders' official site reports.

Feliciano was placed on the Physically Unable to Perform list to open up training camp after suffering a knee injury during OTAs, but it appears, for the most part, he has put it behind him. Feliciano is expected to serve as the team's backup center this season.

Seth Roberts
News
Roberts did not dress for Saturday's preseason loss to the Rams due to an undisclosed reason, Raiders insider Eddie Paskal reports.

Roberts saw 12 snaps during the Raiders preseason opener, but was kept to the sideline on Saturday with starters Amari Cooper and Michael Crabtree back in the lineup. Roberts is expected to serve as the Raiders' slot receiver when the regular season rolls around, but Cordarrelle Patterson continues to push for an expanded role in the offense after Roberts' absence from the preseason tilt. Patterson hauled in one pass on two targets for seven yards with Roberts out.
