If it wasn't already insulting enough to be 0-6, the Raiders are adding injuries on top of it. It's sounding very much like they may have come out of their home loss to the Cardinals last Sunday with three serious injuries.
Usama Young was carted off the field with what was later reported as an ACL/MCL tear which would have him out for the season. Following the game, Tony Sparano said the injury to Young "probably wasn't great."
Those are the exact words he used to describe the foot injury to tight end David Ausberry today.
LaMarr Woodley left the game in the third quarter with a biceps injury and didn't return. When asked today if the injury could be serious, Tony Sparano responded, "I could be, yeah. We'll see."
Now reports are saying he has a torn biceps and done for the season.
Young and Woodley were both starters. Ausberry was supposed to be a starter but was injured prior to the start of the season and Mychal Rivera was given the nod ahead of him. Rivera started in place of Ausberry as a rookie last season and posted a respectable 38 catches for 407 yards and 4 touchdowns.
