The Raiders made some rosters moves Friday ahead of Sunday’s home game against the Buffalo Bills that reflect the injuries they are going with.
As expected, rookie cornerback, first-round pick Damon Arnette was officially put on the injured reserve along with defensive tackle Daniel Ross, who has a foot injury. Arnette had thumb surgery on Thursday and is expected to miss six to eight weeks.
Ross suffered him injury at New England last week after not playing in the first two games. An NFL source said he is expected to be able to play later this season as well.
As a result, the Raiders promoted safety Dallin Leavitt from the practice squad. He was on the roster in Week 1. Expect the Raiders to add, at least, one receiver to the roster Saturday because Bryan Edwards is out and Henry Ruggs II and Rico Gafford are not expected to play on Sunday. Keelan Doss is a possible promotion candidate.
The Raiders also added defensive end Breeland Speaks to the practice squad.
He was a second-round pick by Kansas City in 2018 and also spent time with the Seattle Seahawks.
