As per usual, the Raiders made a move on Saturday just shy of the team's game on Sunday. Usually that move involves someone from the practice squad. And several times this season, that move has been to call up undrafted rookie safety Tevin McDonald to the active roster in time for the team to face the Steelers on Sunday.

To be exact, this is the third time this season McDonald has been called up to the active roster. The previous two times, he was waived the following week and placed back on the practice squad. His one appearance came in the team's week five game against the Denver Broncos.

C.J. Wilson was on the team all last season and even started a few games. He can play both defensive end and tackle, but has also been back and forth from the roster this season as the Raiders have a few players to fill that role this season -- namely rookie second round pick Mario Edwards Jr and second-year man Denico Autry.
