The latest in injury news for the Raiders offers more bad news. Charles Woodson is expected to miss significant time with a dislocated shoulder, his agent Carl Poston told ESPN's Josina Anderson. Also according to Poston, Woodson's timetable is uncertain.

UPDATE: Woodson is expected to miss two weeks according to one report. Another report has him missing an extended period of time. Seems more likely to be the latter for such an injury, but we'll see.

As of this earlier this afternoon, the Raiders were waiting to hear back from the MRI on Woodson's shoulder which he injured late in a blowout loss to the Bengals in Sunday's season opener.

This will be the first time Woodson has missed any time since he returned to the Raiders two seasons ago.

Woodson is not alone on the injury list. Fellow safety Nate Allen left early in Sunday's game with a knee injury and the Raiders fear it is a torn ACL. Head coach Jack Del Rio would only say there was a chance Allen would return which suggests he too could miss some time.
