Raiders lose LB option

You can scratch Kirk Morrison off the list of possible Oakland Raiders.

The former Raider linebacker is headed to the Buffalo Bills. Oakland traded Morrison, who played middle linebacker for the Raiders, to Jacksonville. ESPN’s John Clayton reported Tuesday that the Raiders could look at Morrison or Lofa Tatupu in light of a likely season-ending knee injury suffered by weakside linebacker Travis Goethel. The Raiders were already considering adding a veteran at the spot.

Oakland has previously visited with Tatupa. Although, he is a natural middle linebacker and he has had injury issues. At some point, I expect Oakland to bring in a veteran at the spot, though.

Meanwhile, Oakland tight end Brandon Myers hurt his ankle in practice Wednesday. It’s too early to tell how serious it is. Starter Kevin Boss is week-to-week with a knee injury.
