The Raiders will sign Jonathan Holland to their 53-man roster and he will replace Louis Rankin on kickoff returns against Denver, coach Tom Cable said following practice Friday.
Wide receiver Johnnie Lee Higgins made it through practice without limitations, is listed as probable, and will return punts.
No word on who will be released to make room for Holland, a former receiver who will have a role as an extra defensive back.
One candidate is Rankin, who the Raiders could return to the practice squad should he clear waivers. With Cable already saying Justin Fargas will be active, Rankin would likely be inactive anyway.
More to come . . .
