The Raiders have filled out their practice squad by adding four more players. Two are familiar faces and two are new to the team-- CB Chimdi Chekwa, DT Vaughn Meatoga, C Colin Miller and RB Jeremy Stewart. They join LB Kaelin Burnett, WR Brandon Carswell, WR Travionte Session and LB Nathan Stupar to complete to maximum eight players on the squad.

Chekwa was waived on Friday as part of the final roster cutdown. He played in four games for the Raiders last season after the team chose him in the fourth-round (113th overall) of the 2011 draft.

Miller played in four preseason games with the Raiders, was also waived on Friday. The first-year player was in training camp with the Pittsburgh Steelers in 2011.

Meatoga (6-1, 295) was an undrafted free agent out of Hawaii who spent camp with the Cincinnati Bengals. He played in 52 games over four collegiate seasons.

Stewart (5-11, 215) plays fullback. He was in training camp with the New York Jets but originally signed with the Philadelphia Eagles as an undrafted free agent out of Stanford.
