Darren Waller heading to injured reserve

Raiders coach Josh McDaniels recently said tight end Darren Waller‘s body will tell the team how much time off he needs. Apparently the amount of time will be at least four weeks.

Waller will go on injured reserve with a hamstring injury, according to multiple reports.

Under NFL rules, that means he’ll be out at least the next four weeks. That hurts Waller financially because his contract calls for him to get a $75,000 roster bonus for each game that he’s on the active roster.

Waller has had a disappointing and injury-plagued season, appearing in five games and catching 16 passes for 175 yards.

  1. As a 50 year Raiders fan, this team is now a comedy show. Disgrace to the Raiders I grew up watching

  2. remember when i kept mentioning how he’s doing too many podcasts and not enough training? lots of thumbs down in the preseason, but now…?

  3. Wouldn’t hurt Derek Carr to have a frank discussion with Jim Plunkett on on how to win championships as a Raider.

  4. Honestly would he really be making a big difference this season even if he was out there? I have felt like he no longer part of the team, until articles like this come up. Maybe they can trade him for picks.

  5. Maybe he can sell some rap music to make up the 75k weekly?
    What a disappointment all around

    Should have put that money into OL and DL.

    This, times a million. Should have traded him when they could.

    “Now” a comedy show?

  8. The Raiders have always been my favorite team, but they have been a joke since 2003 and haven’t won a Super Bowl since 1983 (season). It would be like them to lose to the Colts and become more of a joke. Nonetheless, must give new coach 3 full years. Cannot be a revolving door, then no good candidate will ever apply.

    The Packers tried to trade for him and the Raiders turned them down. The Packers dodged a bullet there

  10. Ziegler should have traded him. Smells like Mark Davis has beem n trying to appease Carr.

    Big mistake. Hit that reset button the right way.
