Raiders announce cuts
By Bill Williamson
The Oakland Raiders just announced their final cuts. The news -- with key information on Aaron Curry -- is below. I will come back with an analysis of shortly.
The team waived 17 players, terminated one veteran, placed three on reserve/injured and placed veteran linebacker Curry on reserve/physically unable to perform due to a knee injury. Curry is eligible to return to practice as early as Oct. 16, the day after the conclusion of the NFL's sixth weekend. Once he returns to practice, he will be allowed to practice for up to 21 days prior to returning to the active roster.
In other moves Friday, the team waived LB Kaelin Burnett, K Eddy Carmona, WR Derek Carrier, WR Brandon Carswell, DE Hall Davis, TE Kyle Efaw, DL Dominique Hamilton, OL Kevin Haslam, OL Nick Howell, LB Chad Kilgore, OL Dan Knapp, WR Eddie McGee, C Colin Miller, RB Lonyae Miller, WR Travionte Session, LB Nathan Stupar and S Curtis Taylor.
Three players were placed on injured reserve: S Brandon Underwood (hip/groin), TE Tory Humphrey (hamstring) and P Marquette King (toe).
The team terminated the contract of WR Roscoe Parrish.
