Korey Bosworth, a first-year linebacker out of UCLA and the nephew of former Oklahoma All-America linebacker Brian Bosworth, signed with the Raiders on Thursday.
Injuries to incumbent starter Aaron Curry and rookie Mario Kuhn left the Raiders thin at linebacker heading into Friday night’s game against the Arizona Cardinals.
Bosworty is expected to accompany the team to Arizona for the game, the Raiders said in a press release.
Bosworth, 6-foot-1 and 230 pounds, originally signed with the Denver Broncos as an undrafted free agent in 2010. He spent parts of the 2010 and 2011 training camps with the Detroit Lions and played in the Lions’ preseason opener last week against the Cleveland Browns.
Bosworth’s twin brother, Kyle, plays for the Jacksonville Jaguars.
