ALAMEDA, Calif. (AP) - The Oakland Raiders have promoted wide receiver Greg Jenkins from the practice squad and placed Juron Criner on season-ending injured reserve with a shoulder injury.

The Raiders made the move Saturday to give them another option at wideout with leading receiver Denarius Moore out for Sunday's game against Tennessee with a shoulder injury.

Jenkins joined the Raiders as an undrafted free agent out of Alabama State. He played quarterback in college but moved to receiver with the Raiders and made the practice squad.

Criner played one game in his second season. He had three catches for 32 yards against Philadelphia on Nov. 3.
