Raiders released S Brandon Underwood with an injury settlement.

Underwood was sent to injured reserve with a groin injury, but will be free to sign with any club once he gets healthy. Underwood has appeared in 23 career games, but was out of the league in 2011. He'll look for work as a special teamer.

Raiders placed S Brandon Underwood (hip/groin), TE Tory Humphrey (hamstring) and P Marquette King (toe) on injured reserve, ending their seasons.

Primarily a special teamer in Green Bay, Underwood made the trip West to Oakland along with GM Reggie McKenzie.

Raiders signed DB Brandon Underwood, formerly of the Packers.

Underwood was cut last September after battling a sprained knee and receiving a two game suspension for violating the league's personal conduct policy. Underwood was primarily a special teamer in Green Bay, where new Raiders GM Reggie McKenzie worked in the front office.

Free agent DB Brandon Underwood has been reinstated by the NFL.

Underwood was suspended two games for violating the league's personal-conduct policy after a domestic violence incident with his wife. The Packers may be interested in bringing him back if they sustain more injuries in the secondary.

Packers waived S Brandon Underwood.

Slowed by a sprained knee, dealing with off-the-field issues and attempting to switch from cornerback to safety, Underwood simply had too much stacked against him in his quest to make the Packers' roster. For the same reasons he was cut, he's highly unlikely to get claimed on waivers.

Packers S Brandon Underwood is out "a couple" of weeks with a knee sprain.

Underwood was already on the bubble after a July arrest for allegedly assaulting his former wife, so any missed reps in training camp are going to hurt. At this point, we'd be surprised if the former sixth-round pick made the team.

Packers CB Brandon Underwood pleaded not guilty to a disorderly conduct charge, stemming from a June incident with his wife.

Underwood has a pretrial hearing set for September 13, with the trial scheduled for September 26. Underwood is accused of ripping a necklace off his wife outside their Green Bay home.

The Boston Globe's Greg A. Bedard believes CB Brandon Underwood is likely "in his final days as a Packer."

A former Packers beat writer, it's unlikely Bedard has drawn that conclusion out of thin air. A role player, Underwood's roster spot is indeed in grave danger after he both allegedly assaulted his wife and was convicted of "prostitution non-marital intercourse" this offseason.

Brandon Underwood's wife said Tuesday that the disorderly conduct charge against the Packers cornerback was blown out of proportion.

"I told police I did not want them to arrest him," said Brandie Underwood. "He's never harmed me in any way, shape or form." Though Brandie filed for divorce in May, the two still live together and are trying to save the relationship. Without Underwood's cooperation, the misdemeanor charge may be thrown out.

Packers CB Brandon Underwood has been charged with misdemeanor disorderly conduct after allegedly assaulting his wife, according to WITI-TV in Milwaukee.

Underwood allegedly ripped a necklace off his wife, dragged her out of the car, and threw her to the ground on the night the Packers received their Super Bowl rings. His wife had filed for divorce in May, which comes as no surprise considering Underwood was found guilty of "prostitution non-marital intercourse" in March. He doesn't have the kind of roster security to survive more off-field woes.

Beat writer Mike Vandermause suggests that CB Brandon Underwood will be on the roster bubble next season.

Underwood appeared to take a step back in his sophomore season and has had some off-field issues. Pat Lee is capable of filling the dime back role.

Packers CB Brandon Underwood was found guilty of one count of "prostitution non-marital intercourse" in connection with an incident last June at a Wisconsin Hotel & Golf Resort.

Underwood was fined $379 for the no-contest plea. The conviction will be cleared from his record in 12 months if he pays the fine. It's not clear if Underwood will face league discipline for the incident.

Cornerbacks coach Joe Whitt said he wasn't sure if Brandon Underwood (shoulder) would be able to return to practice this week.

Whitt added that even if he does return, the nickel job belongs to rookie Sam Shields. "His injury had nothing to do with Sam playing," Whitt said. "I mean, Sam was going to play if Brandon was hurt or not. He's going to have to show that he's in a position that he can outplay Sam."
Tue, Sep 21, 2010 10:49:00 AM

Packers CB Brandon Underwood (shoulder) has resumed practicing with a brace on his shoulder.

Underwood had been out of action since injuring the shoulder on August 26. Expect rookie Sam Shields to handle nickel duties for one more week before Underwood returns to game action with a restrictive harness on his shoulder.
