Last week Raiders rookie safety Tyree Gillespie showed up on the injury report with a hamstring injury. The injury had him miss practice on Thursday and Friday and he was ruled OUT for the game against the Chiefs.

Wednesday the team placed the fourth rounder on injured reserve, which means he will be out at least three weeks.

Gillespie has played almost exclusively on special teams, seeing only seven defensive snaps. He has seven combined tackles, five of which have come on special teams which is third on the team.

In a corresponding move, the team signed linebacker Patrick Onwuasor to the active roster from the practice squad. Onwuasor was called up last Sunday, presumably taking the special teams snaps Gillespie had been taking.

To replace Onwuasor’s spot on the practice squad, the team signed DL PJ Johnson. They also announced safety Roderic Teamer has returned to practice and has been designated for return from injured reserve.
