SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – The Las Vegas Raiders announced the addition of former Utah State safety Dallin Leavitt to the team’s 53-man active roster ahead of week four of the 2020 NFL season.

Leavitt was officially promoted from the Raiders’ practice squad on Friday, October 2.

After spending the opening week of the NFL season on the active roster for Las Vegas, Leavitt was waived and signed to the organization’s practice squad in order to make room on the 53-man roster for fellow USU product Nevin Lawson.

The former Aggie first joined the Raiders as an undrafted free agent following the 2018 NFL Draft.

During his time with the Raiders, Leavitt has played in 17 games.

Leavitt owns career stats of 11 total tackles and six solo tackles.

Las Vegas is currently 2-1 on the season. The Raiders’ next game is at home against the Buffalo Bills (3-0) on Sunday, October 4 at 2:25 p.m. (MDT). The game will broadcast on CBS.
