Raiders head coach Jack Del Rio never says more than he has to about injuries. Which makes it all the more bad news today when he had something to say about the injury to Justin Tuck's shoulder. When asked about how the MRI looked, his response was "Not good".

Tuck has been playing through his shoulder injury the past few weeks, but went down in the fourth quarter of Sunday's game against the Broncos and didn't return.

Del Rio wouldn't speculate on whether Tuck would be headed for injured reserve, but it appears likely they could be without him at least for a while.

In Tuck's absence, rookie Mario Edwards is likely to see increased playing time. Edwards got his first start last Sunday and played 50 of 57 defensive snaps in the game, tying for the team lead with six tackles (3 solo) and a half sack.

The Raiders have two weeks to get things figured out as they are on a bye this week.
