The Las Vegas Raiders spectacularly won the opening round of the 2021 NFL season at Allegiant Stadium, but failed to win unscathed after serious injuries on both sides of the ball.
Most notable was Gerald McCoy, a defensive harness. Gerald McCoy was added to the cart from the field during a thrilling 33-27 overtime win against Baltimore Ravens. Head coach Jon Gruden provided the ominous up-to-date information that night injuries can be long-term.
It seems that his worst fear has been confirmed.according to Ian Rapoport on the NFL Network, McCoy is expected to miss the rest of the season due to a knee injury:
# Raiders DT Gerald McCoy suffered an end-of-season injury on Monday night, sources say. Another season has been shortened due to the previous multi-year professional bowlers. The team announced it as the knee of MNF. Damion Square has replaced him on the roster.

After the Raiders strive to improve this group during the off-season, the injury will hit the Raiders defensive front seriously. He was also listed as a Defensive Harness Starter, alongside new additions of peers like Solomon Thomas and Quinton Jefferson.
Unfortunately, McCoy played only 9 snaps against Ravens before being kicked out of the game.Las Vegas is currently expected to replace his location on the roster of 53 people as follows: Damion Square after signing him a waiver from the Los Angeles Chargers practice team..
McCoy has been forced to miss for the first year in a row due to an injury, so it’s still unclear what this means for McCoy’s career. He was abstained during the 2020 campaign after his quadriceps ruptured during a training camp with the Dallas Cowboys.
Apart from McCoy, guard Denzelle Good will also miss the rest of the season due to the ACL breaking. Meanwhile, guard Richie Incognito, quarterback Marcus Mariota, and defensive end Yannick Gakoue are all continuing to treat their injuries.
Despite his staggering wins, the Raiders may need to use their shorthand roster to understand how to survive these next few weeks.
