Raiders work out linebackers

The Raiders worked out linebacker Kevin Malast on Tuesday, according to his agent, as well as linebacker Prescott Burgess, according to Aaron Wilson of Scout.com.
Malast, 25, has not appeared in any regular-season games since he joined the NFL out of Rutgers in 2009. He has spent time with the Chicago Bears and Tennessee Titans.
Malast, 25, is 6-feet-2 and 235 pounds. The Raiders are thin at linebacker in light of Ricky Brown being placed on injured reserve Saturday and starting middle linebacker Rolando McClain suffering an ankle injury Sunday against the Houston Texans.
Malast was released by the Titans in late August, and he has not been with a team ever since. He spent five weeks on the Bears practice squad in 2009.
Burgess, 27, has appeared in 38 games during his five NFL seasons, none as a starter. He has played for the Baltimore Ravens and New England Patriots, including one game for the Ravens this season.
