ALAMEDA, Calif. (AP) -- The Oakland Raiders placed linebacker Travis Goethel on injured reserve as the team trimmed its roster to the 80-player limit.
Fullback Bryson Kelly, wide receivers Damola Adeniji and Steve Goulet, offensive linemen Ben Lamaak and Lou Eliades, safety Josh Bullocks and defensive tackle Derrick Hill were all waived Tuesday.
Goethel, who was expected to back up middle linebacker Rolando McClain, suffered a knee injury during training camp last week. The second-year player had also played on special teams.
Additionally, rookie offensive lineman Alan Pelc, sidelined with an undisclosed injury since early in camp, was put on IR.
