Raiders Marcus Mariota placed on IR after aggravating quad injury in victory vs. Ravens

It was a harrowing victory in overtime for the over the on Monday night, and it's one they'll remember for a long time to come. Unfortunately, however, they didn't come away unscathed -- having most notably lost defensive lineman to a season-ending knee injury. One day after receiving that bad news, they're dealing with more, but this time it's on backup quarterback . As the Raiders ready to take on the in Week 2, they'll have to do so without Mariota, and for Daniel Carlson Jersey several games thereafter.That's because the 27-year-old will mi s at least the next three weeks after aggravating a quad injury, forcing the Raiders to place him on . This forces a bit of an offensive adjustment for head coach Jon Gruden -- who had an eye on mixing Mariota into the offense (e.g., in San Francisco and in Chicago). Mariota's injury K.J. Wright Jersey was suffered on a 31-yard run against the Ravens, a play that hinted strongly at what Gruden had up his sleeve for the former second-overall pick in 2021.The Raiders will now revert to a more traditional offense under , and look to a familiar face in quarterback to back him up.Peterman signed on with the Theo Riddick Jersey Raiders in 2018 and has been a favorite of Gruden ever since, the decision to add Mariota notwithstanding. He's showed promise at times, but a continued need for development as well, and he doesn't present the matchup i sues that Mariota does in the aspect of mobility. It's unclear if the Raiders will bring in another QB, but if they move Mariota to injured reserve as expected, they'll have an open roster seat to do so. For Mariota, who is Maxx Crosby Jersey playing in the final year of a two-year contract, it's all about getting healthy as soon as po sible.
