The Raiders freed up a spot on the 53-man roster for quarterback Carson Palmer by placing veteran defensive end Matt Shaughnessy on the injured-reserve list.
That makes Shaughnessy ineligible to play for the Raiders again this season. He suffered a shoulder injury against the New York Jets on Sept. 25 and has not played since.
The Raiders held out hope that his shoulder might heal at some point this season. However, it appeared as if things weren’t going to improve enough for Shaughnessy to help out this season.
Jarvis Moss, Desmond Bryant and Trevor Scott are expected to fill the void in Shaughnessy’s absence.
