On Wednesday, the team placed Ngata on the injured reserve list, according to Detroit Free Press. The 33-year-old suffered a torn bicep during the first half of last week’s loss against the Panthers and will undergo surgery on Thursday in California.
Game Bradley McDougald Jersey Kuechly was injured on a short LeGarrette Blount run from the 1-yard line. Kuechly rushed from the right side of the Eagles line as Blount was dropped for a 1-yard loss on a run to the left. Kuechly sat on the turf at Bank of America Stadium before slowing getting up and being walked to the sideline by trainers.
He was checked on the sideline before jogging to the locker room before halftime. He then remained in the locker room at the start of the second half, when the Panthers announced he was being evaluated for a concussion.
It’s disturbing news for the All-Pro linebacker, who has missed nine games the last two seasons because of concussions.
You definitely could smell it. We’ll see. They asked us about how we feel, Raiders running back Jalen Richard said, via the San Francisco Chronicle.
The poor air conditions in the Bay Area have led many high schools to cancel games on Friday. The Raiders are still scheduled to play the Chargers Sunday in Oakland.
We’re seeing the worst air quality ever recorded in many parts of the Bay Area, Tom Flannigan, a spokesperson for the Bay Area Air Quality Management District, told the Chronicle. The entire Bay Area population is likely being affected by the smoke.
