Henry Ruggs out for Raiders; Josh Jacobs, Darren Waller questionable

Wide receiver Henry Ruggs won’t be with the Raiders when they take the field against the Patriots on Sunday.

Ruggs has been ruled out of Sunday’s game due to knee and hamstring injuries. Ruggs opened the week as a full participant with only the knee issue noted, but dropped to limited participation while adding the hamstring injury on Thursday. He was out of practice entirely on Friday.

Fellow rookie wideout Bryan Edwards was limited all week with a foot injury, but he did not get an injury designation.

Running back Josh Jacobs (hip) and tight end Darren Waller (knee) made their first practice appearances of the week on Friday. They’ve both been listed as questionable along with tackle Sam Young (groin) and offensive lineman Denzelle Good (thumb/illness).

If Young and Good play, they’ll be candidates to replace Trent Brown at right tackle. Brown (calf) and linebacker Nick Kwiatkoski (pectoral) have been ruled out.

  1. They’ve got Nelson agholor and Zay Jones as well so I’ll be fine in the receiving department especially with the number one tight end in the league

    Incognito also out. Brown was another classic BB move. 1year rental for anl 7th rder, a sb title, and then let some other team make the cap blunder.

  3. Durability is still a concern for Ruggs. We are going to struggle with Edwards’ foot still bothering him. We are going to be relying more on Renfrow and God help us, Zay Jones and Nelson Agholor. Without Ruggs to stretch the field, Carr will look even LESS downfield. BB is going to try his best to take Waller away in the passing game so it will be up to Carr to find some other players this week. Jacobs is banged up too so I don’t think they’re going to just pound it down NE’s throat, especially since Trent Brown and Incognito are out this week.

  4. what you dont think INgold and 3 TE can run the rock down thier throat!? with a couple of backs there to give him a few plays off, Jacobs will be fine.

    besides, there will be defenses that Carr will recognize.. heck in the last chiefs game they used Chung to cover Kelce on EVERY play. and he isn’t even on the team now!

    Look, if the Raiders even make a game of it, which i’m sure they will, traveling on a short week to the longest destination possible,(thanks again Goodell) then they still have a great start. IF ANY Raider fan was told they would go 2-1 to start the year they would be happy about it. even 3-3 through 6 games is still on par for a wild card spot.

    This game will be about mistakes in a huge chess match. In 14 the Raiders came very close (only a gabe jackson penalty) to punching it in and winning that game. Seattle is NOT at the playoff level yet, so don’t think Pats went toe to toe with a possible NFC champ. This team is beatable, and its been proven so far.

    I don’t think the Pats know exactly how young and fast this team really is. Nor how hungry they are to help Gruden erase a bad Tuck taste in thier mouth. He will have them really amped up!
    Carr is a better QB, maybe no sacks on Cam but certainly a dropped fumble,
    Raiders win 30-28

    Another classic BB move? Trading a 2nd(!) rounder for Mohamed Sanu — a career WR3 — while overpaying for his contract, then releasing him the following season.

  6. Meanwhile Trent Brown is at home with his feet up getting an early start on all the Halloween candy bought for next month!! 🎃

  7. I’m seriously worried about the Raiders offensive line, 2 starters out, even some backup’s hurt. Getting really thin there. Also Rugg’s is out, Edwards nursing an injury. Jacob’s banged up. Not a good start to the season (injury wise) against a tough team and early tough schedule.

    It’ll be tough to come out with a win. Injury’s, short week, long road trip. I guess we’ll see just how good they can be. You know BB will look to shut down Waller at all cost’s, and try to keep Jacob’s contained. Someone has to step up. Possibly Edward’s, Renfrow? Zay Jones or Aguhlar maybe, but I don’t see them carrying the team. Personally I’m hoping they give Rico Gafford some snaps to replace Rugg’s speed, that man is just as fast, if not faster than Rugg’s. We’ll need to be creative to have a chance in this game, and the defense needs to continue to improve.

  8. Ruggs is not even the best rookie WR on the Raiduh’s. And that’s not a bad thing for Vegas. The got an absolute steal with the other guy.

    But yeah, this is not a talented roster and they won’t finish with a winning record unless the season ends this coming week.

    Antonio Brown and Sanu were Brady’s moves, not BBs. Hence, why they were bad moves. Brady forgot to check the ego at the door in 2018 and even worse in 2019, where he couldn’t rein it in at all. So, talk to ego Brady.

    Brady was ruining the team and BB was trying to save Brady’s awful attitude.

    NE gets so many compensatory picks, losing a 2nd will be irrelevant. Pretty funny to me a non/Pats fan has to pretend NE has to win a SB every year or somehow they’re not good anymore if they don’t. The arrogance of loser and jealous Pats haters.

    Note how Newton has no issues throwing to the other WRs beyond Edelman in NE. Harry was key in game vs Seattle.

  10. The Raiders are building a very strong roster with young players who are tough guys in the Raiders’ tradition. Some of the expensive free agents they’ve signed were never in the long term plans anyway. I’m seeing what’s happening with the youngsters like Kolton Miller, Josh Jacobs, Jonathan Abram, Darren Waller, and others. They’re coming in and buying into what Gruden and his staff are wanting to do, and they’re getting better and better every year.

  11. Like someone else pointed out, I hope they activate and use Rico Gafford. If anything, he will hopefully help keep NE’s defense on its toes, the way Ruggs would probably have.
