HENDERSON, Nev. (AP) – The Las Vegas Raiders received a major boost to their defense when wide receiver Hunter Renfrow and tight end Darren Waller were activated outside of injured reserve on Saturday.
Coach Josh McDaniels indicated that this would likely happen in time for Sunday’s home game against the New England Patriots.
Renfrow (oblique) has not played in Jacksonville since Nov. 6. Combined with a concussion earlier in the season, he was limited to six games with 21 catches for 192 yards and no touchdowns. Renfrow caught 103 passes for 1,038 yards and nine TDs last season.
Waller (hamstring) has played in five games for 16 total receptions for 175 yards and a touchdown, last playing in Kansas City on Oct. 10. He had more than 1,000 yards in catches in 2019 and 2020 before falling to 55 receptions for 665 yards and two TDs last season.
To make room for both players, the Raiders fired wide receiver DJ Turner and tight end Jacob Hollister. They also promoted tackle Sebastian Gutierrez and guard Jordan Meredith from the practice team.
