Rodney Hudson
No Updates
Lee Smith
News
Smith missed his third consecutive practice due to an undisclosed reason Thursday, Michael Gehlken of the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports.

The reason for Smith's absence in practice throughout the week is unclear, while there's also no indication regarding the severity of the issue. It appears unlikely he'll be able to play in Saturday's preseason matchup against the Cowboys, which would increase the roles of Clive Walford and Gabe Holmes behind starter Jared Cook.

Max Valles
News
Valles missed Sunday's practice with a knee injury, Vic Carucci of The Buffalo News reports.

Valles seemed okay during Saturday's preseason contest in which he lined up for nine defensive snaps, so the injury could have worsened overnight. The Bills are hoping Valles can function as a depth outside linebacker this season.

Injury
Knee - Questionable for Week 3 vs. Denver
Reggie Nelson
News
Nelson racked up eight tackles (five solo) and one pass defensed during Sunday's win over the Titans.

Nelson was the second-leading tackler for the Raiders on Sunday, while fellow safety Karl Joseph led the way with nine. Oakland's secondary, which disappointed in 2016, played well enough in Week 1 to limit Titans quarterback Marcus Mariota to no completion longer than 24 yards and zero passing touchdowns. Nelson and crew have a much easier matchup in Week 2 against a lousy Jets offense led by QB Josh McCown.

Jalen Richard
News
Richard had six carries for 58 yards and a touchdown and two receptions for 51 yards (two targets) in Sunday's 45-20 win over the Jets.

Richard displayed similar explosiveness last season when he ran for a 75-yard touchdown on the first carry of his career. He finished the year with five carries of 20-plus yards and a 5.9 average on only 83 totes, but he and DeAndre Washington both struggled when a Latavius Murray injury forced them into larger roles. Richard finds himself in a similar position this season behind Marshawn Lynch, though he's at least making an early case to get more change-of-pace work than Washington. Richard had gains of 51 and 39 yards while Sunday's game was still somewhat competitive, but five of his eight touches occurred on the garbage-time final drive.

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 notched three tackles (all solo) and one pass defensed during Sunday's win over the Titans.

Mack was held in check without a sack, but two of his three tackles were for a loss of yardage. The reigning Defensive Player of the Year will have a much easier matchup in Week 2 against the Jets, who turned the ball over twice while scoring just 12 points in a loss to the Bills on Sunday.

Antonio Hamilton
No Updates
Nicholas Morrow
No Updates
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.

Jihad Ward
News
Ward (foot) was taken off the Raiders' Physically Unable to Perform 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 upcoming campaign.

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.

Breon Borders
No Updates
David Amerson
News
Amerson cleared concussion protocol and will start Week 1 against the Titans, Michael Gehlken of the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports.

Amerson suffered a concussion in the third preseason game against the Cowboys but is now completely cleared to return to the field. The fifth-year pro is slated to start across from Sean Smith at cornerback Sunday.

Shilique Calhoun
News
Calhoun was waived by the Raiders on Saturday, Michael Gehlken of the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports.

The 2016 third-round pick put on weight this offseason in an attempt to become a starting outside linebacker in Oakland after spending last season performing special teams duties with minimal defensive snaps. The Raiders will have to look for help at linebacker now, and expect Calhoun to be picked up on waivers and at least find himself on a practice squad.

Jared Cook
News
Cook made four receptions on six targets for 25 yards during Sunday's win over the Jets.

Cook tied for the Raiders' lead in targets with six in Week 2, but was overshadowed by receiver Michael Crabtree, who hauled in three touchdown passes and 80 yards on six catches. Through two games Cook has seen a healthy 11 targets and secured nine catches, but has yet to be much of a factor in the red zone with Amari Cooper, Crabtree and running back Marshawn Lynch earning priority in that department thus far. Cook will look to grab his first touchdown as a Raider in Week 3 at Washington, though it remains clear there are many mouths for quarterback Derek Carr to feed.

Tyrell Adams
News
Adams accounted for seven tackles (four solo) during the Raiders' win over the Titans on Sunday.

Entering Sunday's 2017 regular-season opener, Adams had never recorded a single tackle during his NFL career after appearing in six games with the Raiders in 2016. That all changed against the Titans, as he finished with the third-most tackles for Oakland despite coming off the bench. Adams was on the field for 64 percent of the team's defensive snaps, while starting middle linebacker Marquel Lee appeared for 33 percent.

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) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Jets.

Smith practiced twice during the week despite the neck injury but was limited on both occasions and was still hurting heading into Sunday, prompting the Raiders to keep him out. With Smith sidelined, rookie first-round pick Gareon Conley could be immediately pressed into a significant role in his NFL debut, while backup cornerback T.J. Carrie also could see more snaps at the position.

Injury
Neck - Questionable for Week 3 at Washington
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

Michael Crabtree
News
Crabtree caught six passes for 80 yards and three touchdowns on six targets in Sunday's 45-20 win over the Jets.

Amari Cooper was busy in the red zone Week 1 against the Titans, but Sunday's game marked a return to Derek Carr's long-held preference for peppering Crabtree with scoring opportunities. The 30-year-old wideout happily took advantage with touchdowns from 26, two and one yard(s) out. While Cooper does have an 18-13 edge in total targets through two games, Crabtree is still getting locked into plenty of volume -- including a sizable portion of the high-value looks -- in a prolific Oakland offense. Week 3 brings a matchup with a Washington defense that has thus far been strong against outside receivers but shaky overall.

Giorgio Tavecchio
News
Tavecchio made his lone field-goal attempt from 29 yards to go along with six extra-points in as many tries during Sunday's 45-20 win over the Jets.

Tavecchio remained perfect through the first two weeks of his NFL career as he converted on all seven of his overall attempts in Week 2. His total fantasy production took a slight hit with the Raiders finding the end zone six times against a struggling Jets defense, essentially reducing what could have been additional field-goal opportunites for Tavecchio. Oakland is slated to face a tougher test on the road against the Redskins in Week 3, while Tavecchio looks to maintain his recent success.

Marshawn Lynch
News
Lynch had 12 carries for 45 yards and a touchdown and gained another four yards on one reception (two targets) in Sunday's 45-20 win over the Jets.

The Raiders used Lynch to close out a 26-16 win in Tennessee the previous week, but Sunday's lead so so large that the team turned to backups DeAndre Washington and Jalen Richard. The 31-year-old back did score a two-yard touchdown right before halftime to salvage an otherwise quiet stat line in a game dominated by the Derek Carr-Michael Crabtree connection. While he could see a bit more work in Washington next week, Lynch seemingly isn't destined for the type of massive workload he typically handled in Seattle. It doesn't help that Richard has been excellent in his change-of-pace role, gaining 137 yards on 14 touches thanks to a pair of huge plays.

Gareon Conley
News
Conley (shin) was a full participant at Thursday's practice.

Conley was limited Wednesday after not suiting up for Week 1, but he is looking ready to go for Week 2. Sean Smith (neck) did not participate Thursday, so Conley could see an increased role against the Jets if Smith is unable to play Sunday.

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 (quadriceps) is inactive Sunday for the Raiders' Week 2 game against the Jets.

Olawale's absence will leave the Raiders without a traditional fullback Sunday, but tight ends Lee Smith and Clive Walford are capable of lining up in the backfield when needed to pave the way for Marshawn Lynch and company. Since Olawale was a full participant in practice Thursday and Friday, it's unclear if the quad injury is actually keeping him on the sideline Sunday or if he's simply being left inactive in a coach's decision.

Injury
Quadriceps - Questionable for Week 3 at Washington
Keith McGill
News
McGill (foot) is inactive Sunday for the Raiders' Week 2 game against the Jets.

Though the Raiders listed McGill as questionable heading into the weekend, his full participation in practice Thursday and Friday offered hope he might be able to suit up Sunday. Evidently, the safety didn't make as much progress as the Raiders had hoped, so his 2017 debut will have to wait a little longer.

Injury
Foot - Questionable for Week 3 at Washington
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 gained 20 yards on six carries to go along with three receptions on as many targets for 15 yards during Sunday's win over the Jets.

Washington actually acquired one more touch than fellow backup running back Jalen Richard, but was severely outproduced by the latter as Richard racked up 109 total yards and a touchdown. Washington averaged a team-low 3.3 yards per carry and five yards per catch, lending Richard a leg up in the change-of-pace competition for touches behind Marshawn Lynch. The Raiders' Week 3 matchup against Washington presents more of a challenge than the Jets presented, which could mean additional snaps for Lynch in what figures to be a closer game.

Derek Carr
News
Carr completed 23 of 28 passes for 230 yards and three touchdowns in Sunday's 45-20 win over the Jets.

All three touchdowns went to Michael Crabtree, who has long been Carr's favorite target near the end zone. The fourth-year quarterback has been highly efficient on modest volume through two weeks , attempting just 60 passes as the Raiders have won their games by a combined 35 points. Carr has another solid matchup Week 3 in Washington, but he'll then have to face the Broncos (Week 4) and Ravens (Week 5).

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 will not require surgery on the injured disc in his back, and he could return in eight weeks, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL.com.

Janikowski was surprisingly placed on injured reserve Saturday after initially being listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Titans. The possibility that he could return is a plus for the Raiders, though with only two opportunities to use the IR-return designation, it's unclear if they would use it on him.

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 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 racked up nine tackles (six solo) and one pass defensed during Sunday's victory over the Titans.

Joseph led the Raiders in tackles during their Week 1 win, but the defense was unable to force a turnover throughout the entire contest. They still managed to give up just 16 points, and no more than seven in a single quarter. The 2016 first-rounder will look to maintain the early momentum in Week 2 against a poor Jets offense.

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
Melifonwu (knee) could return from injured reserve after eight weeks, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Melifonwu was placed on injured reserve Tuesday after undergoing surgery for an undisclosed knee injury. The current expectation is that he will return when eligible, but that will ultimately be determined by whether the Raiders need to use their two alloted IR returns on other players.

Injury
Knee - Injured Reserve
Cory James
News
James (knee) was a full participant at the Raiders' practice Thursday.

James being limited for Wednesday's practice was likely more precautionary than anything, as it seems like he should be able to play against the Jets on Sunday.

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.

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.

Elijah Hood
News
Hood was waived by the Raiders on Saturday, Michael Gehlken of the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports.

Hood found himself trapped behind the likes of Marshawn Lynch, DeAndre Washington and Jalen Richard on cut day. A 2017 seventh-rounder, Hood might have trouble finding a new home given his inexperience at the professional level.

Amari Cooper
News
Cooper caught four of five targets for 33 yards in Sunday's 45-20 win over the Jets.

Cooper fell one target shy of team co-leaders Jared Cook and Michael Crabtree, the latter of whom turned his opportunities into six catches for 80 yards and three scores. Derek Carr's reliance on Crabtree near the end zone marked a departure from Week 1 and a return to the pattern from past seasons, after Cooper led the NFL with four targets from inside the 10-yard line the previous week. While Crabtree is off to the better start production-wise, it's encouraging that Cooper already has 18 targets even though Derek Carr has only had to attempt 60 passes in two games. The 30-percent target share isn't sustainable in an offense with impressive complementary weapons, but even something in the range of 25 percent would be a major uptick from last year's mark of 22.1. Cooper draws a potentially tricky Week 3 matchup against a Washington defense with good cornerbacks but plenty of weaknesses elsewhere.

Clive Walford
News
Walford secured one reception on one target for seven yards during Sunday's win over the Jets.

Walford, who was on the field for just five offensive snaps in Week 1, saw seven more snaps (12) in Week 2 against a struggling Jets defense while hauling in his first catch of the season. With Michael Crabtree, Amari Cooper and Jared Cook acquiring a majority of the targets from quarterback Derek Carr, Walford's role in the Raiders' aerial attack figures to remain limited in Week 3 against the Redskins.

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 be active for Sunday's game against the Titans.

Manuel had an upper hand on the backup quarterback duties throughout training camp, beating out second-year Connor Cook for the role behind starter Derek Carr. Manuel isn't slated to see the field unless Carr were to suffer an injury, though it should be noted he's earned the primary backup job out of the gate.

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.

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 racked up 57 yards and a touchdown on three carries to go along with one reception for six yards during Sunday's victory over the Jets.

Patterson has just two receptions on as many targets for eight yards through his first two games of the season, but he's also been involved in the Raiders' rushing attack as he notched his first touchdown on a 43-yard run Sunday. He hasn't been given enough touches to earn much fantasy attention, however, with so much competition for production among receivers Amari Cooper and Michael Crabtree along with a trio of running backs led by Marshawn Lynch. Patterson saw just seven less offensive snaps than No. 3 receiver Seth Roberts, though that may not have been the case if the game were closer down the stretch.

Treyvon Hester
No Updates
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 now appears he's mostly put it behind him. Feliciano is expected to serve as the team's backup center this season.

Seth Roberts
News
Roberts failed to haul in his lone target during Sunday's win over the Jets.

Roberts has seen just two passes thrown his way through the first two weeks of the 2017 season, while fellow receiver Michael Crabtree took the spotlight in Week 2 with a trio of touchdowns. Roberts was still involved in 60 percent of the Raiders' offensive snaps Sunday, and provided a crucial downfield block on Cordarrelle Patterson's 43-yard rushing touchdown. With Redskins cornerback Josh Norman likely keying in on Amari Cooper and Crabtree in Week 3, Roberts could have an opportunity to receive additional looks from Derek Carr.
