Cabinda re-signed with the Raiders on Friday.
Cabinda spent the first six weeks of the 2018 season on Oakland's practice squad before being promoted to the active roster. He made three starts and appeared in 10 contests, posting 21 tackles during his rookie season. The 6-foot-1, 243-pound linebacker projects to play a reserve role in 2019.
Cabinda will start against the Colts on Sunday, Matt Kawahara of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Cabinda will replace Emmanuel Lamur (coach's decision) as Oakland's starting strongside linebacker during his NFL debut. The rookie out of Penn State was promoted to the Raiders' 53-man roster two weeks ago. Cabinda's increased opportunity could propel him onto the IDP radar if he's able to show well against the Colts on Sunday.
Cabinda was signed off the Raiders' practice squad Tuesday and promoted to the active roster.
Cabinda, a 6-1, 243-pound linebacker out of Penn State, will take the place of Derrick Johnson on Oakland's 53-man roster. He will slide in behind starting middle linebacker Marquel Lee as a depth option.
Cabinda was waived by the Raiders on Saturday but cleared waivers and signed with the team's practice squad, Michael Gehlken of the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports.
Cabinda signed with the Raiders in April as an undrafted free agent out of Penn State, but he'll be a candidate to join the active roster later in the season if he flashes potential on the practice squad.
