The club signed offensive tackle Jackson Barton to the active roster while also re-signing defensive tackle Kyle Peko and cornerback Bryce Cosby to the practice squad, the Raiders announced Wednesday.
Barton was active in Weeks 1 & 2. He took one offensive snap and eight special teams snaps. He was then moved to the practice team until Wednesday.
