Justin Ellis reportedly headed to Raiders injured reserve

 On
Wednesday Raiders had a busy day. They added quite a few players to the
roster Youth
Gabe Jackson Jersey
 , all of which required corresponding roster
moves. Amongst all the moves, there was one too many players on the roster due
to the addition of defensive tackles Clinton McDonald and Johnathan Hankins. The
team waived Shilique Calhoun to make room for one of them, but there was still
one more move to be made.With injuries to rookie defensive tackle PJ Hall and
veteran Justin Ellis Authentic
Tahir Whitehead Jersey
 , it seemed likely at least one of the moves
would be to place one of them on injured reserve. According to multiple reports
that player is Justin Ellis.The 5th year nose tackle was playing in his first
game since signing a new contract with the Raiders, paying him an average of $5
million per season. He suffered a foot injury in the season opener against the
Rams that is severe enough to have him out for a while.How long he will be out
is yet to be determined. But he can be placed on IR with designation to return,
which would have him out at least eight weeks with the ability to return to
practice after six weeks.Hall’s ankle injury is considered less severe. He is
expected to miss this week and possible the following week as well http://www.oaklandraidersteamonline.com/johnny-townsend-jersey ,
but not be out an extended period of time.Follow @LeviDamienRaiders PR Dwayne
Harris named AFC Special Teams Player of the Week With all the offense and all
the turnovers in the Raiders wild overtime win against the Browns, I bet you
didn’t expect the award to come from it would be Special Teams Player or the
Week.That award goes to Dwayne Harris who, among other things Womens Gabe
Jackson Jersey
 , had a 49-yard punt return in the fourth quarter
that set up a field goal that gave the Raiders a 34-28 lead.A shout out goes to
Keith Smith and Kyle Wilber for laying huge blocks to help spring Harris on that
return.It was a fine return, but Harris made this team for a lot more than is
return abilities. He is also an outstanding gunner. He made two tackle Sunday,
one to stop the Jabrill Peppers for just one yard.Raiders PR man (that’s public
relations http://www.oaklandraidersteamonline.com/leon-hall-jersey ,
not punt returner) Evert Geerlings had some more notable stats for
Harris.Another notable stat for Harris is his 5 combined return tackles (3 solo)
are tied for second in the NFL over the first four weeks. Good to see him get
recognition for his contributions.Follow @LeviDamien
