Carmel, IN (Sports Network) - Oakland Raiders offensive tackle Jared Veldheer will start the season on injured reserve as he recovers from a torn left triceps.

Veldheer suffered the injury in mid-August. He has started each of the club's games over the past two seasons and has started all but five games since joining the team as a third-round pick in the 2010 draft.

The Raiders promoted offensive tackle Matt McCants from the practice squad to the active roster.
