Smith suffered a season-ending ankle injury in Week 4 and was later placed on injured reserve. He is arguably the Raiders' best blocking tight end and provides a boost to the running game when healthy. On the other hand, Smith amassed only six catches in four games before being injured, a sign that he is not a fantasy producer in Oakland's high-powered offense.
DeAndre Washington started in place of Marshawn Lynch and took the first carry, but he then split work with Richard throughout the rest of the first half. Washington reportedly has been getting more second-team reps during training camp, and his Saturday performance (five carries for 16 yards) was at least better than Richard's on paper. The two second-year backs likely would split work in the event of a Lynch injury, and it's possible they'll share backup snaps while Lynch is healthy. That being said, Washington seems to have an early edge in the competition for the No. 2 spot on the depth chart.
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.
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.
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.
Ward is still on the PUP list, but after reports early in the week said he was close to returning, it appears as though he's now set to return sometime next week barring any setbacks. Once removed, he'll begin competing for backup reps on the defensive line.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Cook inked a two-year deal with Oakland after coming on strong toward the end of his lone season in Green Bay in 2016. His size and speed combination was particularly impactful during the Packers' playoff run, as evidenced by his 18 receptions for 229 yards and two touchdowns in three postseason tilts. With the Raiders, Cook figures to give quarterback Derek Carr the best tight-end target of his young career, and his ability to stretch defenses vertically should help wideouts Amari Cooper and Michael Crabtree see more one-on-one looks.
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.
Cook was in a tough spot, making his first career NFL start against the league's top-ranked defense, which led to predictable results. Oakland had just 203 yards of total offense and failed on 14 of 16 third-down attempts. The rookie was able to string together one good drive, but he missed targets all day and was hurt by some drops. The Raiders offense, so productive all season with Derek Carr steering, scored just 20 points in two games without him.
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.
Smith tore his labrum last October when diving for a pass in a game against the Buccaneers and underwent corrective surgery in January. Now healthy, Smith should open training camp without limitations.
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.
None of the new additions poses a major threat to Crabtree's starting job or snap count, but with Carr surrounded by a better mix of talent, the 29-year-old wideout will have a hard time matching his target totals of 146 and 145 from his first two seasons in Oakland. There's also a reasonable chance Cooper finally surpasses Crabtree as the team leader in targets, after logging 130 and 132 in his first two NFL seasons. The upside is that defenses may pay less attention to Crabtree, which could allow for improvement on his unimpressive mark of 6.6 yards per target since joining the Raiders. He also figures to stay heavily involved in the red zone, where he tied for fourth in the league with 21 targets last season, after drawing a modest total of 13 the previous year.
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.
Lynch's practice habits drew some ire during his final couple seasons with the Seahawks, but the tailback has not missed a single session since joining his hometown Raiders. Along with providing a strong locker-room presence, Lynch's performance on the field has reminded teammates of his Pro Bowl-caliber talent. The 31-year-old reportedly drew the attention of onlookers with a burst of speed following a reception in Sunday's practice, heightening the excitement surrounding his introduction to an already-potent Oakland offense.
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.
Though GM Reggie McKenzie said in July that Conley was only dealing with "shin splints," the injury is evidently more than just that. However, the exact nature still isn't clear and it remains anyone's guess when Conley will be healthy enough to come off the PUP list.
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.
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.
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.
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.
With Marshawn Lynch held out, Washington started and got the first carry, but he then split work with Jalen Richard -- who had five carries for seven yards -- throughout the rest of the first half. Washington and Richard are battling for the No. 2 spot, though there's a good chance they end up splitting the backup work, just as they did last season behind Latavius Murray. Washington seems to have the slight edge in handcuff value at this stage.
Carr talked to reporters about being back in the huddle with his teammates and his familiarity with Oakland offensive coordinator Todd Downing. That stability on offense, along with a better supporting cast in 2017, should enhance last season's seventh-ranked scoring and passing offense.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Helfet needed surgery after breaking his foot in the first week of the 2016 preseason, when he was waived/injured by the Seahawks. His last NFL action came in 2015, when he played 14 games and caught 13 balls on 22 targets for 130 yards and zero touchdowns. The timeline for Helfet's return is murky due to the lack of transparency on the nature of the injury. With tight end Jared Cook ahead of Helfet in the depth chart and receivers like Amari Cooper and Michael Crabtree on the field as well, don't expect quarterback Derek Carr to give Helfet much attention when he's healthy.
Melifonwu had been sidelined for just over a week. Though he only 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.
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.
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.
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 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 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.
O'Malley was seeing limited action behind Clive Walford and Mychal Rivera before being released.
After missing six straight practices, Cooper was back on the field Tuesday, and while the Raiders' starting wideout sported a compression sleeve over his left leg, Gehlken encouragingly relayed that in his return "Amari Cooper look(ed) like Amari Cooper." On the heels of a 2016 season in which he caught 83 passes (on 132 targets) for 1,153 yards and five touchdowns, Cooper's return on investment this season, given his current lofty ADP, hinges on his ability to find the end zone more often, a plausible outcome tied to QB Derek Carr's continued development.
A 2015 third-round selection, Walford didn't develop as expected in his second professional season, catching only 33 passes for 359 yards and three touchdowns (on 52 targets) in 15 games. The stat line closely mimicked his rookie-year production as he continued to split work with Mychal Rivera in a passing game that was highly reliant on its wideouts. Rivera departed for Jacksonville in free agency, but the Raiders seemingly made an upgrade with the signing of Jared Cook, who likely will enter training camp as the favorite to serve as the team's No. 1 tight end. Walford could still push for the job if he regains his explosiveness and impresses during the offseason program.
While Cook is still getting second-team reps as well, this is a positive development for Manuel. The former Bills starter will likely need to win the backup job in order to remain on the 53-man roster come Week 1.
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.
With Amari Cooper (leg), Michael Crabtree and Derek Carr held out, Patterson got the start and caught a five-yard pass from E.J. Manuel on Oakland's first offensive snap. K. J. Brown was the other starter outside, with Seth Roberts assuming his usual place in the slot. There's been talk of Patterson challenging Roberts for snaps, but the former Viking is more likely to serve as the No. 4 wideout, potentially making him the top backup to both Cooper and Crabtree on the outside. Patterson should have a role on offense as an occasional deep threat and/or gadget player, in addition to serving as a kick returner.
Feliciano suffered a knee injury during OTAs, and has been sidelined since. The severity of the injury is still unknown, but Oni Omoile figures to fill in as the backup center for as long as the Miami product remains sidelined.
Roberts' double-hernia injury throughout the 2016 season was kept quiet until now, but the issue was fixed over the offseason, and he's expected to have much more core strength in 2017. A return to full health is promising news for Roberts, who finished last season with a measly catch percentage of 49.4. Despite seeing 22 more targets during his second year in the league, Roberts hauled in just six more receptions while notching 83 less yards. Roberts could be in line for an increase in production if he's able to take care of the drops with a clean bill of health, though newcomer Cordarrelle Patterson figures to push him for targets as well.
