The decision to cut cornerback Pat Lee was indeed a precursor to the return of another cornerback from injured reserve.
The Raiders have announced that Ron Bartell has been placed back on the active roster. Bartell landed on the new revocable IR after suffering a shoulder blade injury in Week One against the Chargers.
Bartell signed with the Raiders in the offseason after spending seven years with the Rams.
The Raiders also promoted running back Jeremy Stewart from the practice squad, given that both Darren McFadden and Mike Goodson will miss Sunday’s game at Baltimore with ankle injuries. To make room for Stewart, cornerback Shawntae Spencer has been placed in non-revocable injured reserve.
