Oakland Raiders Cut 9 and Other Tuesday Practice Notes

Nine players are now former Oakland Raiders. Fullback Bryson Kelly, offensive lineman Ben Lamaak, wide receivers Damola Adeniji and Steve Goulet, safety Josh Bullocks and defensive tackle Derrick Hill were all given their walking papers. There are no surprises there, and none of these guys will be missed.

Offensive lineman Alan Pelc and linebacker Travis Goethel were placed on injured reserve, and that means they are done for the season. Offensive lineman Lou Eliades was waived injured. If he clears waivers the Raiders could place him on the injured reserve list as well.

Jump over to check onto news regarding players that are still actively Raiders from the notes of Jerry McDonald and Steve Corkran.

 

  • Chris Johnson was back at practice. He won't play Friday at Seattle, but he said there was no doubt he'd play in the opener. John Henderson also returned.
  • Stefen Wisniewski sat out practice. Hue Jackson said it was minor. Hopefully he is right. Richard Seymour sat out practice again, and there is no indication his absence will be prolonged. Hue Jackson said he didn't want to overexert him. That would be fine with me, but it is also hard to believe there isn't some kind of injury. Greg Papa had said he had a hamstring issue.
  • Mike Mitchell continues to miss practice. Steve Corkran has a source that sheds a little light on the subject, "A person close to Mitchell said his injury involves one of his knees, though he isn’t sure if Mitchell required surgery to repair the cartilage damage."
  • Chimdi Chekwa continues to spend time at safety. He is also getting reps at corner. It'd be great if he got the hang of safety. He definitely needs to improve on the tackling performance from Sunday's game if he is going to be a successful safety.
