Raiders WR Bryant, S Nelson placed on IR


Wide receiver Martavis Bryant's rocky season with the Oakland Raiders came to an end Wednesday.

Bryant was placed on injured reserve with a posterior cruciate ligament injury after missing the previous three games. The Raiders also placed safety Reggie Nelson (shoulder) and defensive end Shilique Calhoun (neck) on IR.

Bryant was acquired from the Pittsburgh Steelers for a third-round pick during the 2018 NFL Draft and released before Week 1, but he re-signed with the Raiders two weeks later. He caught 19 passes for 266 yards and no touchdowns in eight games.

The 26-year-old struggled to stay on the field, starting with migraine headaches in training camp that forced him out of practice, before his knee injury. He is due to hit free agency in March.

Nelson, 35, had started all 64 games over the past four seasons but sat out Week 8 and ceded his starting job to former first-round pick Karl Joseph over the last four weeks. He finishes the year with 29 tackles and two interceptions.

The moves made room for the official signing of running back C.J. Anderson, which was reported Tuesday, and defensive end Kony Ealy.
