Oakland Raiders Dump WR Nelson; Ink Ateman from the Practice Squad

The Raiders released wide receiver J.J. Nelson Thursday and signed Marcell Ateman, who made a U-turn from the waiver wire back to the 53-man roster, Jerry McDonald of Bayareanewsgroup reports.

Nelson, signed in the off-season to provide a downfield receiving threat, missed the last two games with an ankle injury and coach Jon Gruden appeared to be growing frustrated with the inability of the wide receiver to be available for practices and games.
