Right tackle Trent Brown is once again out for Las Vegas in Week 17. It will be Brown’s 11th missed game of the season.
Since signing a four-year, $66 million deal with the Raiders in 2019, Brown has played 16 of 31 possible games. That will become 32 on Sunday.
He’s dealt with various injuries, an IV mishap, plus a lengthy stint on the reserve/COVID-19 list over the past two seasons.
This week, a knee injury will keep Brown sidelined.
“Very disappointing. We paid him to be the LeBron James of right tackles and he has had a lot of adversity,” head coach Jon Gruden said Friday, via Vic Tafur of TheAthletic.com
Gruden said Sam Young will start at right tackle for Brown.
