The Raiders have announced that they have elevated offensive lineman Jack Cornell to the active roster.
The Raiders needed to find some offense line help somewhere with right tackle Tony Pashos listed as questionable for Sunday's matchup against the San Diego Chargers with a groin injury.
Cornell was previously on the Ravens practice squad before being waived and then signed on to the Raiders practice squad on Sept. 11.
Cornell originally played offensive guard during his collegiate career at the University of Illinois but served time at the tackle position during his Ravens tenure.
In order to make room for Cornell, the Raiders have announced that they have waived guard Antoine McClain.
Besides Pashos being listed as questionable, center Stefen Wisniewski is doubtful to start with a knee injury. Starting left tackle Jared Veldheer is still out with his torn triceps, and rookie tackle Menelik Watson also remains out with his calf injury.
