Shilique Calhoun clears waivers, signed back to Raiders practice squad

 Shilique Calhoun is back with  Womens

the Oakland Raiders, though on the practice squad
and not the active roster. The former third round pick for the Silver and Black
back in 2016 was cut after Monday night’s Rams game, but since then he cleared
waivers and has officially signedback onto the Raiders practice squad.It was a
little bit of a surprising move to cut Calhoun so quick into the season after he
finally showed some progress with a very good preseason. Injuries on the inside
of the defensive line hit the Raiders though and they had to make some
corresponding moves in order to sign DT’s Johnathan Hankins and Clinton
McDonald.No other teams decided to take the chance on Shilique Calhoun though
which paved the way for him to re-sign with the Raiders for their practice
squad. Though not many of the fans seemed too upset to see him go, it still
seems like a good move to keep him available should the Raiders need him again
some time this year.This isn’t the first time Calhoun has needed to work his way
back to the roster Youth

 , he also was waived and placed on the practice
squad last season. It’s not what you’d like to see from a 3rd round investment
but at least there is still a chance that he can become a productive player for
the Raiders. The Houston Texans placed cornerback Kevin Johnson and right tackle
Seantrel Henderson on injured reserve on Wednesday.Henderson is out for the
season after sustaining an ankle injury in the first quarter on Sunday which
required surgery. Johnson got his second concussion this season and is
designated to return, which means he could come back in eight weeks.Houston
signed free agent cornerback Shareece Wright to take Johnson's spot on the
roster and promoted tackle Roderick Johnson to the active roster from the
practice squad.Johnson, who received his first concussion this season in a
preseason game against San Francisco on Aug. 18, was a first-round pick in
2015 Womens

 , but has struggled with injuries in his four
seasons with the Texans. He played in every game as a rookie, but missed 14
games combined over the next two seasons.Henderson was in his first year with
the Texans after spending the past four seasons in Buffalo.
