Raiders activate LT Jared Veldheer, waive QB Tyler Wilson

Kirby Lee-US PRESSWIRE

The Oakland Raiders have announced they have activated left tackle Jared Veldheer from partial season injured reserve. In a corresponding move, they waived rookie quarterback, Tyler Wilson.

Veldheer had been out since training camp with a torn triceps muscle. The team placed placed the partial season IR designation on him which made him eligible to return following week eight of the season. The injury and surgery to repair it carried with it about a three month recovery time which made his return unlikely to be on time. He returned to practice two weeks ago and Dennis Allen had said he targeted this week for his return to the active roster.

The fourth year tackle has been the Raiders' starting left tackle since half way through his rookie season. The former third round pick out of Hillsdale college did not miss a game in any of his first three seasons prior to 2013, appearing in all 48 games and making 43 starts.

Starting in Veldheer's place this season has been Khalif Barnes who switched over from right tackle.

Tyler Wilson was the Raiders' 2013 fourth round pick. He didn't make the team out of training camp and was placed on the practice squad. He was activated two weeks ago as the backup to Matt McGloin while Terrelle Pryor was recovering from a knee injury. Pryor is now healthy enough to resume playing and the team waived Wilson yet again.
