ALAMEDA (CBS/AP) — The Oakland Raiders have claimed defensive back Coye Francies on waivers from the Seattle Seahawks.

The Raiders announced the move Wednesday, two days after Francies was waived by Seattle.

Francies played in eight games with the Cleveland Browns from 2009-10 and also has experience as a kick returner. Oakland needs help in that area with Denarius Moore and Jacoby Ford both nursing injuries.

To make room on the team’s active roster, the Raiders waived defensive back Conroy Black.

Oakland also moved offensive lineman Zach Hurd (head), fullback Rashawn Jackson (hip), and offensive lineman Ed Wang (shoulder) from waived/injured to injured reserve.
