Raiders activate Nate Allen, waive Marcus Thigpen

New, comments

Saturday the Raiders made official what the coaches had been saying all week by activating safety Nate Allen from partial season injured reserve. Allen had been on IR: Designated for return since week two following an MCL injury he suffered in the season opener.

The 6-0, 210-pound safety joined the Raiders this offseason after five seasons in Philadelphia. He started 70 games for the Eagles over those five seasons since the team made him a second round pick out of South Florida in 2010.

In a corresponding move, the Raiders waived return man Marcus Thigpen whom they had signed last week. They also re-signed S Tevin McDonald to the practice squad after the undrafted rookie had been waived on Thursday.
