Saturday, October 1st, 2011 at 2:24 pm in Oakland Raiders.

The Raiders on Saturday released wide receiver/kick returner Nick Miller and signed defensive back Ron Parker from their practice squad to take Miller’s spot on the 53-man roster.

Miller was with the Raiders the past two seasons and the first three games of this season. He became expendable with the emergence of rookies Denarius Moore and Taiwan Jones as viable options on punt and kick returns, respectively.

Parker was signed Monday. He spent time in training camp with the Seattle Seahawks before being released. He is out of Newberry College, where he played both safety spots.

The signing of Parker to the 53-man roster gives the Raiders another option at defensive back, with free safety Michael Huff fresh from a concussion and cornerback Chris Johnson out with a hamstring injury.

It’s uncertain whether Parker will be activated for Sunday’s game against the New England Patriots.

In other news, it’s likely that the Raiders will re-sign undrafted rookie cornerback Sterling Moore to their practice squad now that they have an open spot �" teams are permitted to carry as many as eight players.

Moore was released when the Raiders signed Parker.

Miller just seemed confused out there at times. We have better players to do what we wanted him to do.
