The Raiders have placed tackle Jared Veldheer on the reserved/injured designated for return list. The team announced the move Saturday in a news release.

Veldheer will have to miss at least six games. The left tackle underwent surgery in August for a torn left triceps.

To fill Veldheer's spot on the roster, tackle Matt McCants was signed from the practice squad. McCants was a sixth-round pick by the New York Giants in 2012, spending most of last season on their practice squad.
