The Raiders waived linebacker Kaluka Maiava, who was on injured reserve, reports ESPN's Adam Caplan. He was placed on IR in October with a hamstring injury.
The Raiders placed linebacker Kaluka Maiava on injured reserve with a hamstring injury, ending his season. Maiava made 15 tackles this season before suffering the injury Week 4 against Miami.
Raiders linebacker Kaluka Maiava left Week 4 against the Dolphins in London with a hamstring injury. He suffered the injury on his sixth snap of the game and was ruled questionable to return.
With Miles Burris (foot), Sio Moore (ankle) and Nick Roach (concussion) all recovering from injuries, the Raiders might have to start Kaluka Maiava and Bojay Filimoeatu at linebacker alongside Khalil Mack during Sunday's game against the Dolphins, according to CSNBayArea.com. "We'll continue to monitor that situation, but I'm hopeful that one or maybe two of (the injured players) could be ready," head coach Dennis Allen said. "We'll just have to see how the week goes."
Raiders linebacker Kaluka Maiava had a season-high eight tackles, including three solo, Week 3 at New England. His season high prior to this game was four.
