ALAMEDA, Calif. -- The Oakland Raiders have signed cornerback Brandian Ross to boost their banged-up secondary.

The Raiders signed Ross off the Green Bay Packers' practice squad Wednesday. Oakland is missing both of its starting cornerbacks with Ron Bartell out with a broken shoulder blade and Shawntae Spencer sidelined with a sprained right foot.

Pat Lee and Joselio Hanson are the likely starters this week against Pittsburgh but the Raiders needed depth. Ross, an undrafted free agent out of Youngstown State in 2011, spent last season on Green Bay's practice squad. He began the season on the active roster but was inactive for the season opener. He was waived and then added back to the practice squad last week.

Oakland also signed cornerback Akwasi Owusu-Ansah and Vaughn Meatoga to the practice squad.
