Raiders dealing with injuries too


Recommended Posts


Although our Colts have some injury problems...  The Raiders are banged up as well.

Their O-line and LB positions are concern. 


Gabe Jackson will not be back this week as Raiders prepare to face Colts, figures to be on schedule to return next week




...“I don’t think he’ll practice,” Gruden said of Jackson’s status this week as the team prepares for the Colts... 


Over the first two games it was Denzelle Good who stepped in at right guard for Jackson, but with Good suffereing an ankle injury in practice Friday, it was Jordan Devey who moved over to right guard after having started the first two games at left guard. Should Good still not be full go, or if Gruden liked what Devey did at the spot better, he will start again this Sunday in Indianapolis.





Jon Gruden ‘concerned to say the least’ about injuries at linebacker, Raiders will bring in some this week




...Vontaze Burfict came into the game with nagging injuries to his shoulder and his knee. Then he suffered another injury to his elbow in the game, so he’s banged up to say the least. During the game, Maquel Lee suffered an ankle injury that could be more than just banged up. Nicholas Morrow also hurt his ankle. And suddenly the only two healthy linebackers the Raiders had were Tahir Whitehead and Kyle Wilber. It’s really no wonder the Vikings were gouging the Raiders defense on the ground the whole game.


“Yeah, you get worried when you have three of your linebacker come out of the game,” Gruden said. “Yeah, I’m concerned to say the least, but Mike Mayock and the staff are working hard to come up a contingency plan if we need to find a linebacker.”


The first step in that contingency plan will be bringing in some free agent linebackers for a workout, Gruden added. He noted that there is still a chance a couple of the banged up linebackers on the team will be able to play next Sunday in Indianapolis...

Let’s just win. We can’t lose because that’s most likely means a two game losimg streak heading into the bye. 

We get it. We really do. You think the Chiefs are unbeatable. Probably preferable if you don't bleat on about it in every thread though.....
