Examining the Oakland Raiders' roster:

QUARTERBACKS (3)
Carr has been impressive, even as he holds onto the ball too long in the pocket at times.

RUNNING BACKS (3)

Legacy George Atkinson III seems a safe bet for the practice squad.

FULLBACKS (2)

Reece has flashed his pass-catching abilities in camp. Olawale has flashed his speed.

RECEIVERS (6)

Does Moore being listed third on the depth chart put him on the roster bubble? Keep an eye on the Butler vs. Juron Criner battle. Mike Davis and Seth Roberts are also practice squad candidates.

TIGHT ENDS (3)
David Ausberry's knee injury makes him a candidate for the injured reserve/designated to return list, meaning the Raiders have an immediate need for bodies at tight end.

OFFENSIVE LINEMEN (9)

Not much movement here since camp opened. In fact, none at all in this corner.

DEFENSIVE LINEMEN (8)

This week, seventh-round draft pick Shelby Harris, listed second at a defensive end spot on the depth chart, takes the place of third-year DE Jack Crawford.

LINEBACKERS (6)

With Kaluka Maiava missing most of camp with a strained hamstring, let's replace him with Filimoeatu ... for now.

CORNERBACKS (6)

A new prediction -- DJ Hayden never practices in the preseason and opens the regular season on the PUP list.

SAFETIES (4)
Usama Young has been on the PUP list all camp long.

SPECIALISTS (3)

No questions needed.
