Jenkins signed from practice squad

November, 23, 2013
The Oakland Raiders, who ruled leading receiver Denarius Moore out for Sunday’s game against the Tennessee Titans on Friday, signed receiver Greg Jenkins off the practice squad on Saturday.

Receiver Juron Criner, a fifth-round draft choice in 2012, was place on season-ending Injured Reserve in the corresponding roster move.

“Things seem a lil mysterious but that’s the way God chooses to work,” Criner Tweeted Saturday afternoon, before the Raiders announced the moves, “so I let em do his thang and know that I’m #Blessed.”

Criner was inactive this season until Nov. 3, when he caught three passes for 32 yards against the Philadelphia Eagles but injured his right shoulder in the game and was inactive the next two weeks. He was limited in practice this past week and was deemed questionable to play on Friday.

He is the fourth draft pick of the Reggie McKenzie-Dennis Allen regime to be placed on IR this season, along with offensive lineman Tony Bergstrom, running back Latavius Murray and cornerback D.J. Hayden while linebacker Miles Burris came off the physically unable to perform list this week.

Jenkins, meanwhile, has been on the Raiders’ practice squad all season. He is a converted quarterback from Alabama State who passed for 3,166 yards and 20 touchdowns in two years there.

“Thanks for the support #RaiderNation much Love,” Jenkins Tweeted.
