Hamilton (groin) was a full participant in Thursday's practice, Art Stapleton of The Bergen Record reports.
Hamilton was inactive for Week 4 after suffering a groin injury against the Texans the week prior. He'll serve as a depth option at cornerback this weekend in Carolina with starter Eli Apple (groin) also returning in a full capacity this week.
Hamilton spent the preseason in Oakland before failing to make the 53-man roster. He's appeared in 12 career games in two years with the Raiders, primarily spending time on special teams. He'll provide depth at cornerback in New York behind Eli Apple and Janoris Jenkins.
Hamilton tore the meniscus in his knee during the Raiders' Week 4 loss to the Broncos, but progressed as expected in his rehab and will offer aid to Oakland's secondary over the final three contests. It's likely that Hamilton will see most of his snaps on special teams, as was the case before he hit IR.
Hamilton (knee) returned to practice Tuesday, Michael Gehlken of the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports.
Hamilton had arthroscopic knee surgery on a torn meniscus a little over a month ago, but he appears to be nearing a return. If the Raiders choose to move him to the active roster, he will be eligible to return for the Week 14 matchup with the Chiefs. Look for more updates on his status to come over the next couple of weeks.
