Raiders promote Dowling, Filimoeatu to roster
ALAMEDA, Calif. (AP) The Oakland Raiders starting outside linebacker Sio Moore will miss Sunday's game at Kansas City because of a hip injury.
He had originally been listed as questionable.
The Raiders also announced Saturday the promotion of safety Ras-I Dowling and linebacker Bojay Filimoeatu from the practice squad to the active roster.
Oakland placed safety Larry Asante on season-ending injured reserve with a shoulder injury to make room on the roster. The Raiders had one open spot on their 53-man roster after cutting linebacker Jamar Chaney earlier in the week.
Dowling was signed to the practice squad in September. He played nine games with New England in 2011-12. Filimoeatu has appeared in five games for the Raiders this season. He has 10 tackles.
The Raiders (2-11) have just four healthy linebackers for Sunday's game against the Chiefs (7-6).
Miles Burris and Khalil Mack are the only ones who have started games in the NFL. Filimoeatu and Ray-Ray Armstrong have played just 89 snaps on defense this season and only two the past four games.
