Lions released CB Ron Bartell.

Bartell, 31, hasn't been the same since suffering a significant neck injury in Week 1 of the 2011 season with the Rams. He saw some action with the Lions' first-team defense this summer, but Detroit is moving forward with second-rounder Darius Slay opposite Chris Houston. Bill Bentley will man the slot. Bartell lost out to Rashean Mathis for the veteran reserve role.

The Oakland Press doesn't expect CB Ronald Bartell to make the 53-man roster.

Bartell opened training camp with the first-team defense, but missed significant time due to a shoulder injury and is now behind second-round rookie Darius Slay. He has a base salary of $1 million this season and is the Lions' fourth cornerback. Bartell, 30, could draw some interest in free agency if released.

Ronald Bartell and Chris Houston have worked as the Lions' first-team corners throughout OTAs.

Jonte Green and Chris Greenwood are working with the twos. Bill Bentley has been the all-time slot corner. Second-round pick Darius Slay is recovering from knee surgery and won't make his move until August. The position opposite Houston is still up in the air. Bartell struggled mightily in Oakland last year.

Lions signed CB Ron Bartell, formerly of the Raiders.

Bartell was released last week after starting all six of his games with Oakland this season. Although he was a liability in coverage, the 30-year-old is worthy of a flier in Detroit. The Lions need the depth with Jacob Lacey (knee) headed to injured reserve.

Raiders released CB Ronald Bartell.

Heads continue to roll in Oakland, though Bartell was actually brought in by the new regime. Signed to be a starter, Bartell ended up missing Weeks 2-9 with a neck injury, and wasn't effective when on the field. Injuries have now limited the former Ram to just seven of a possible 29 games the past two seasons. He'll turn 31 in February. Oakland will go forward with Michael Huff and either Joselio Hanson or Phillip Adams at cornerback.

Raiders activated CB Ronald Bartell (shoulder) from injured reserve designated for return.

Bartell will immediately step back into the starting lineup after Oakland released Pat Lee to make room for his return. He and Michael Huff will be the starters with Joseilo Hanson working as the nickel back. The Raiders also placed CB Shawntae Spencer (foot) on injured reserve on Saturday. Bartell has been out since Week 1.

Raiders CB Ronald Bartell (shoulder) is expected to return this week against the Ravens.

Bartell was placed on injured reserve designated for return after Week 1 and has been practicing for the past week or so. Week 10 is the first game that he's eligible to return. Oakland currently ranks No. 21 against the pass and has some serious depth issues, so Bartell's return is definitely welcome. Bartell opened the season as the starting left corner. Pat Lee has been thrust into that spot over the past two months.

Raiders CB Ronald Bartell (shoulder, I.R./designated for return) will resume practicing this week.

Bartell isn't eligible to resume playing in games until Week 10, but his return to the practice field confirms his recovery is moving along as planned. Bartell was signed in the offseason to be Oakland's top cornerback. The 3-4 Raiders have quietly strung together consecutive wins, and reinforcements are on the way.
Mon, Oct 29, 2012 05:34:00 PM

Coach Dennis Allen stated Friday that CB Ronald Bartell "seems to be on track" to rejoin the lineup when eligible in November.

Bartell, Oakland's top corner, was placed on the injured reserve/designated to return list and is eligible to resume playing in games on November 11 -- Week 10. He can resume practicing on October 27. The Raiders need their front four to keep playing like they did against Matt Ryan to mask the secondary deficiencies.
Fri, Oct 19, 2012 04:17:00 PM

Raiders placed CB Ronald Bartell (shoulder) on the injured reserve recall list.

Bartell broke his left shoulder blade in Monday night's Week 1 loss to the Chargers. After being a very durable player to start out his career, Bartell has been hit hard with injuries in his last two seasons. He can return to practice as early as October 27th, but can't suit up until Week 10 at the earliest. Pat Lee will step in and man the Raiders' left cornerback spot in Bartell's absence.
Sat, Sep 15, 2012 05:27:00 PM

Raiders CB Ronald Bartell has been diagnosed with a broken left shoulder blade, and will be sidelined a minimum of four weeks.

Limited to just one game by a severe neck injury last season, Bartell entered Week 1 as the Raiders' starting left corner. He's now in line to miss as much as two months. He'll be replaced by Pat Lee. Bartell was having a rough game in Monday's loss before going down. Bartell had missed only two games in five years before getting hurt in Week 1 last season.

Raiders CB Ronald Bartell left Monday night's game against the Chargers with elbow and shoulder injuries and will not return.

Trainers were working on Bartell on the Oakland sideline. He has been victimized by Philip Rivers, giving up gains of 23 yards and 46 yards. Pat Lee replaced Bartell in the lineup.
Mon, Sep 10, 2012 11:30:00 PM

Raiders CB Ronald Bartell is fully healed from the neck injury that forced him to miss all but one game with the Rams last season.

"I've been completely (healed) and 100 percent since about March," Bartell said. "I feel great." He's been told that he's in no increased risk of injury as a result of the neck surgery. Bartell and Shawntae Spencer ran as the starting cornerbacks in Tuesday's practice.
Tue, May 22, 2012 06:19:00 PM

Raiders signed CB Ronald Bartell, formerly of the Rams, to a one-year, $3 million contract.

It's a busy afternoon in Oakland, as Bartell's signing comes on the heels of new guard Mike Brisiel's pact. The top corner left on the market, according to Rotoworld's Evan Silva, Bartell lacked ball skills in St. Louis but had success shadowing opposing No. 1 receivers before last season's neck surgery. Given a clean bill of health by the doctors of the Rams and Raiders, Bartell should slot in as Stanford Routt's replacement.
