Raiders activate S Nate Allen from short-term IR, waive WR Marcus Thigpen


ALAMEDA, California — The Oakland Raiders have activated safety from short-term injured reserve list in time for Sunday's game against Minnesota.

The Raiders waived receiver on Saturday to make room on the 53-man roster.

Allen injured his knee in the season opener against Cincinnati. He is expected to start alongside against the Vikings, with TJ Carrie moving back to cornerback.

The Raiders also re-signed safety to the practice squad.
