The Las Vegas Raiders will be without three starters against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Las Vegas Raiders starting guard Denzelle Good suffered a torn ACL during the team’s Week 1 game against the Baltimore Ravens, according to ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler.
Good, 30, is a former seventh-round who spent four seasons with the Indianapolis Colts. He was claimed off waivers by Raiders in 2018 and has started 20 games for Vegas.
Head coach Jon Gruden also announced that he fears the team suffered three other long-term injuries. Edge rusher Yannick Ngakoue (hamstring), quarterback Marcus Mariota and defensive tackle Gerald McCoy (knee) are all expected to miss time.
“Hopefully Yannick is not as seriously injured as he possibly can be — we don’t know the outcome yet,” Gruden told reporters Tuesday. “Losing McCoy is a big loss to our leadership network and our D-line.”
The Raiders play the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 2 at Heinz Field. The Steelers have no serious injuries heading into the practice week.
