Raiders safety Johnathan Abram will undergo season-ending shoulder surgery Thursday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Media reports.

Abram injured his shoulder in Monday’s win over the Browns, playing 45 of 56 defensive snaps. Those are the only 11 defensive plays he missed in 14 games.

Abram wanted to finish out the season, but doctors advised him to shut it down. It was not the first time this season Abram has dislocated his shoulder, according to Pelissero.

The 27th overall choice in 2019 finishes his third season with 116 tackles, five tackles for loss, three quarterback hits, an interception, four passes defensed and a fumble recovery.

In transactions Wednesday, the Raiders placed cornerback Brandon Facyson on the COVID-19 reserve list.

  1. Zero loss. He’s awful. 3rd down, teams target him and Perryman (who is good but shouldn’t be covering players on 3rd downs). So many mental breakdowns but hey he gets a nice tackle every other game! Wooo!

  2. @hellpaso youd be right if you were talking about him last year.

    Hes played great in his new role this year, Yes hes mediocre in coverage which is why hes rarely asked to do it (especially in the cover 3 scheme) hes there to make tackles and hes improved a ton this year. Hes not getting boneheaded penalties and hasnt missed nowhere near the amount of tackles he has in the past.
