Raiders bring up Jack Cornell from practice squad


With offensive line injuries a concern entering Sunday’s game against Pittsburgh, the Raiders have added some depth.

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

In a corresponding move, the Raiders released defensive lineman Brian Sanford.

Cornell, 24, was signed to the Raiders’ roster for the Oct. 6 game against San Diego. He was waived on Oct. 7, then re-signed to the practice squad two days later. An Illinois product who played both guard and tackle for the Fighting Illini, Cornell was a member of the Ravens’ practice squad in 2012.

Three Raiders offensive linemen are listed as doubtful for Sunday: center Andre Gurode (quad), right tackle Tony Pashos (hip) and left tackle Menelik Watson (calf).
