Raiders activate newly acquired LB Korey Toomer from practice squad, waive DE Shelby Harris

Saturday, the Raiders did some roster shuffling (All Hallows) eve of their game against the Jets Sunday. Just days after the Raiders signed linebacker Korey Toomer to their practice squad, he has been signed to the active roster. In a corresponding move, they have waived Shelby Harris who was himself signed to the active roster from the practice squad a week ago.

The 6-2, 235-pounder was added the day after the team learned they would be without rookie linebacker Neiron Ball for what looks to be about a month with a knee injury. Harris was brought up for the game last week against the Chargers due to the team being without defensive linemen Justin Ellis and Denico Autry -- both of whom return this week.

Raiders defensive coordinator Ken Norton Jr is very familiar with Toomer as Norton was LB coach in Seattle when in 2012 the Seahawks used a 5th round pick on Toomer out of Idaho. Toomer has appears in 8 career games with the Cowboys (1) and Rams (7) exclusively on special teams.
