Mariota (pectoral) participated in practice Wednesday, indicating the Raiders have designated him to return from IR. Mariota could be active for Sunday's game against the Bills and serve as Derek Carr's backup. Carr has been a solid QB thus far with 7.8 yards per attempt while completing 74 percent of passes, so Mariota likely won't see any playing time unless Carr suffers an injury .

Mariota was placed on injured reserve on Sept. 7. The highly anticipated quarterback was signed to back up Derek Carr and help push the offense forward. Mariota signed a two-year, .6 million free-agent contract with the Raiders in March, which made him the highest-paid backup quarterback in With the corresponding move, the Raiders cut quarterback DeShone Kizer from the practice squad and signed wide receiver De’Mornay Pierson-El to the practice squad. The Raiders will move on with three quarterbacks on their roster and hope the rest of the injured players return to the team soon.

With Mariota’s return, the Raiders cut quarterback Kyle Sloter from the practice squad. Cornerback Robert Jackson also was released. The Raiders signed defensive back Tony Brown and offensive tackle Dan Skipper to the practice squad.
