Raiders waive four from injured reserve

The Raiders made a few cost cutting moves today, waiving four players who had been placed on injured reserve. Those players were fullback Rashawn Jackson, defensive tackle Jamie Cumbie, offensive lineman Ed Wang, and tight end Tory Humphrey.

None of the players were eligible to play this season as they had been placed on injured reserve. The plus side to keeping them on IR was that the team kept their rights through the 2012 season. The downside is their salaries count against the 2012 cap.

The only player among the four who made it past the first cut was Jamie Cumbie. He initially made the roster only to be waived/injured once the team claimed three additional players who had been cut by other squads. He was then placed on injured reserve.

Cumbie earned a spot due to some solid play this preseason especially in the third preseason game versus the Lions in which he batted down three passes and had a sack. I wouldn't be surprised to see him back in Raiders camp again next season for a third time. That is, of course, if his performance this preseason didn't catch the eye of another team looking to bring him in.
