The Sports Xchange

The Oakland Raiders promoted safety Tevin McDonald from their practice squad on Saturday.

In a corresponding move, the Raiders released veteran safety Taylor Mays. He was questionable on the team’s injury report after missing most of the practice week with an ankle injury.

McDonald was originally signed as an undrafted free agent in May before being waived by Oakland at the end of the preseason. He was active for the team’s Week 2 game against Baltimore but did not play. The 5-foot-11, 195-pounder played in 50 games at Eastern Washington (2013-14) and UCLA (2011-12).
