BALTIMORE, Md. – The Oakland Raiders have activated CB Ron Bartell from injured reserve/designated to return, and promoted RB Jeremy Stewart from the practice squad, the team announced Saturday. Both players will be on the roster for Sunday's game vs. Baltimore at M&T Bank Stadium.
The 6-foot-1, 210-pound Bartell was placed on injured reserve/designated to return on Sept. 15 after suffering a shoulder-blade injury in the season-opener vs. San Diego Sept. 10. He returned to practice with the Silver and Black on Oct. 31.
An unrestricted free agent signing after spending seven seasons with the St. Louis Rams, Bartell has played in 90 career games with 66 starts. His career totals include eight interceptions, 10 forced fumbles, three fumble recoveries and 66 passes defensed.
The 5-foot-11, 215-pound Stewart, who wears No. 32, was signed to the Raiders' practice squad on Sept. 3 after spending training camp with the New York Jets. He originally signed with the Philadelphia Eagles as a non-drafted rookie free agent out of Stanford.
To make room on the team's active roster, the Raiders Saturday waived CB Pat Lee and placed CB Shawntae Spencer on injured reserve.
