Raiders add defensive lineman from Chicago Bears

Updated September 15, 2021 - 7:46 am

In need of defensive line reinforcements, the Raiders signed defensive tackle Damion Square off the Bears’ practice squad and will add him to the 53-man roster.

The need for Square is the result of injuries to defensive tackle Gerald McCoy and defensive end Yannick Ngakoue. McCoy suffered a knee injury and Ngakoue a hamstring injury in the Raiders’ Monday night win over the Ravens. Their status for Sunday’s game against the Pittsburgh Steelers is uncertain.
