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.
Hamilton sustained the injury against the Ravens last Sunday on a kickoff and is now slated to undergo arthroscopic knee surgery on a torn meniscus. Linebacker Shilique Calhoun takes his spot on the 53-man roster as the Raiders' cornerbacks continue to be plagued by injury.
Hamilton was ruled out for Sunday's game against the Chargers with a knee injury.
Hamilton was a new addition to the injury report this week and did not practice. The 24-year-old has mostly been used as a special teams contributor by the Raiders this season.
