As Jack Del Rio alluded to on Monday, the injury long snapper Jon Condo suffered in Sunday's game was a concerning one. The tests came back on Monday, prompting the Raiders to make a decision. They have decided to place Condo on injured reserve for the final three games of the season and have added long snapper Thomas Gafford to replace him.
The 32-year-old Gafford played long snapper for the Chiefs for seven seasons from 2008 to 2014 -- a total of 105 consecutive games. He spent the first 11 games of this season with the Bears before his release a week two weeks ago on November 28.
The 6-foot-2, 250-pounder was a four-year letterman at Houston, playing in 47 games as the Cougars' long snapper. He recorded 16 special teams tackles, one forced fumble and one fumble recovery.
Additionally, the Raiders have signed WR Larry Pinkard to the practice squad.
