The Oakland Raiders signed defensive back Juston Burris and placed safety Johnathan Abram on injured reserve, the team announced Friday. Burris was a fourth-round pick of the New York Jets in 2016 and remained with the team until being cut in October last year. The Cleveland Browns signed the 26-year-old off the Jets' practice squad in November.

In three seasons overall, Burris has 39 tackles and two interceptions in 38 games (two starts). He primarily played on special teams. Abram, Oakland's first-round pick (27th overall) this year, injured his shoulder early in the Raiders' 24-16 season-opening victory against visiting Denver on Monday night.

Coach Jon Gruden announced Wednesday that Abram would undergo surgery and likely miss the rest of the season.
