The Oakland Raiders announced yet another move on Saturday as they added offensive lineman Jack Cornell from their practice squad while waiving defensive tackle Brian Sanford.
Cornell was previously signed to the active roster and appeared in one game for the Raiders on Oct. 6 as the team took on the San Diego Chargers. Cornell was then waived by the team the day after the game, before being re-signed to the practice squad on Oct. 9, where he remained until today.
The Illinois alum spent his rookie year last year on the practice squad for the Baltimore Ravens but was released by the team after their 2013 training camp.
With Andre Gurode and Tony Pashos remaining sidelined with their respective injuries, the addition of Cornell gives the Raiders some added depth and insurance.
Sanford becomes the second defensive lineman released by the Raiders this week after the team waived 2012 sixth-round draft pick Christo Bilukidi.
