With four players already pulling practice squad duties for the Raiders there were another four spots available. As of yesterday all 8 practice squad slots have been filled.
Colin Miller didn’t make the final cut be he’ll be one roster move away from the active roster as both he and, of all people, Chimdi Chekwa have returned to the Raiders after being waived.
Not exactly sure how a team can waive a player from the active roster, thus voiding his contract, only to re-sign him at the reduced practice squad rate but that’s what the Raiders and Chekwa have just done.
In addition to Miller and Chekwa defensive tackle Vaughn Meatoga and former Stanford running back Jeremy Stewart join the Silver and Black practice squad.
