The roster moves continue as the season winds down. With just one game remaining, the Raiders called up rookie defensive end Shelby Harris from the practice squad and placed tight end Brian Leonhardt on injured reserve.

Harris was one of the team's three seventh round draft picks last May (235 overall). He was cut back in September and has been on the team's practice squad every since.

Leonhardt made the team out of camp after spening last season on the practice squad. He appeared in 12 games this season as the primary blocking tight end, making three starts. He totaled six receptions for 35 yards and one touchdown this season and went down several weeks ago with a concussion and didn't return.

To replace Harris' spot on the practice squad, the team signed K/P Michael Palardy who had spent the off-season with the team. His return gives the Raiders their camp leg and competition behind Sebastian Janikowski and Marquette King heading into this off-season.
