Well, now we know why the Raiders went out and signed KR  Trindon Holliday. Oakland has waived/injured KR/WR Andre Debose after who suffered an Achilles injury. This is the latest in a long line of tough breaks for DeBose, who flashed a lot of talent in college but never could stay healthy enough to put it all together. The hope was that he could inject new life into a substandard Raiders return game, but it looks like Holliday will be the man to do that now.

Being placed in the waived/injured list means DeBose will have 24 hours to be claimed by another team. If he goes unclaimed, he will go on Oakland's injured reserve list for the season and the team will retain his rights.

Achilles injuries are no joke and for a speed guy like DeBose it means his career may be over before it starts. Details right now concerning the severity and nature of DeBose's injury are sparse, but if any more information comes to light Silver and Black Pride will let you know.
