Wright was released by the Raiders on Saturday, NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports.
Entering his eighth season in the league, Wright's veteran presence didn't make him a lock for a spot in the Raiders' secondary. He was bothered by a minor hamstring injury during the latter portion of training camp as the team consequently brought in Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie to provide additional depth.
Wright totaled 44 tackles, one interception and one forced fumble with the Bills last season. The Raiders are also adding former Colt Rashaan Melvin to their cornerback group, and Wright is likely to battle for snaps behind Melvin in 2018.
Wright (concussion) has been ruled out of Sunday's game against Jacksonville, Mike Rodak of ESPN reports.
Wright sustained a concussion in Week 16 against the Patriots and is yet to return to practice. Leonard Johnson played a season-high 64 snaps in Wright's absence last week against the Dolphins and should again be primed for an elevated workload as a depth and nickel player.
Wright (concussion) remained sidelined for Thursday's practice, Mike Rodak of ESPN.com reports.
Wright was absent from practice for the second straight day as he continues to deal with concussion-like symptoms, and at this stage he's a big question mark to play in Sunday's playoff game in Jacksonville. He'll have to put in at least some limited work during Friday's session to have any chance of returning to the field this weekend.
