Raiders sign back DT Kyle Peko to practice squad

·1 min read

It’s game week for the Raiders. The first regular season game week of the season. Just ahead of their first practice for the season opener against the Chargers, the Raiders added the final player to bring their practice squad to 16 players.

That 16th player is Kyle Peko who had been signed this offseason and spent all of camp and preseason with the team.

The seven-year veteran has appeared in 21 career games with the Broncos, Bills, and Titans.

With six defensive tackles on the Raiders’ active roster, Peko becomes the only interior defensive lineman on the practice squad.

Peko’s return means the only defensive tackle who spent time with the Raiders this offseason who is no long with the team is Tyler Lancaster who today was released from injured reserve with an injury settlement.

Addtionally, 14 of the 16 players on the practice squad were those among the final 22 cuts, which means very few players who were in Raiders camp are not still around and one step away from the game day roster.
