Raiders promote Jack Cornell from practice squad


The Raiders have signed offensive lineman Jack Cornell from their practice squad, the club said Saturday.

In a corresponding move, the Raiders waived offensive guard Antoine McClain.

Cornell, 24, spent the 2012 season on the Ravens’ practice squad. He made 19 starts at guard at Illinois (2007-2011) and also saw some playing time at offensive tackle.

The Raiders have some injury concerns at tackle, with right tackle Tony Pashos (groin) and left tackle Menelik Watson (knee) both listed as questionable on the injury report. Pashos sat out practice on Friday, while Watson was a limited participant.
