The Raiders have waived linebacker Aaron Curry, who spent the first eight games of the season on the physically-unable-to-perform list with sore knees.
Curry broke the news first in tweet Tuesday that said he was "no longer a Raider," with the club confirming the move less than an hour later with a tweet of its own. He played in two games this season.
In his first game back, Nov. 11 at Baltimore, Curry picked up two personal fouls and was fined $23,625 by the NFL.
The Raiders acquired Curry from the Seattle Seahawks last season for a seventh-round draft pick in 2012 and a fifth-round selection in 2013. He immediately was placed into the starting lineup by then-coach Hue Jackson, replacing Quentin Groves.
Curry accepted a pay cut in the offseason to remain with the Raiders.
Ravens: Safety Ed Reed avoided a one-game suspension for late hits after an appeal. He instead will be fined $50,000. The NFL suspended Reed for one game without pay Monday for his third violation in three seasons of the rule prohibiting helmet-to-helmet hits against defenseless players.
Redskins: Linebacker London Fletcher's consecutive games streak is in danger once again. A sprained right ankle kept him from practicing, and he has little time to recover before Thursday's Thanksgiving game against the Dallas Cowboys.
Fletcher, 37, has never missed a game in his 15-year NFL career and has appeared in 234 in a row, tying him with Tampa Bay Buccaneers defensive back Ronde Barber for the longest active streak.
Steelers: Pittsburgh signed veteran wide receiver Plaxico Burress to provide depth at a position decimated by injuries. Burress, 35, spent his first five NFL seasons with the Steelers, who selected him with the eighth overall pick in the 2000 draft.
Bears: Quarterback Jay Cutler is not certain he will be available for Chicago's game against the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday but vowed to return from a concussion this season.
Panthers: Carolina waived kicker Justin Medlock (Mission San Jose High-Fremont) and replaced him with former Redskin Graham Gano. Medlock missed his last three field goals.
Rams: St. Louis released fullback and special teams captain Brit Miller, an ex-49er, to make room for center Scott Wells. Wells has been on injured reserve after breaking a bone in his left foot in the opener.
Jets: The team waived wide receiver Jason Hill, who spent four seasons with the 49ers after they drafted him in the third round in 2007.
Seahawks: Rookie safety Winston Guy has been suspended for four games without pay for violating the NFL's policy on performance-enhancing substances.
