It did not look good

As if Derek Carr’s groin injury wasn’t enough. the Las Vegas Raiders saw second-year standout wide receiver Hunter Renfrow take a viscous hit to the head in the third quarter on a punt return against the Los Angeles Chargers on Thursday night.

It wasn’t pretty. Take a look if you can stomach it:

Renfrow wobbled off the field and was examined on the sideline. He then went to the locker room for further examination.

Remarkably, the Chargers were not called for a penalty and Twitter didn’t like it.

The Raiders started the game without first-round pick, wide receiver Henry Ruggs III, who is on the NFL’s reserve/COVID-10 list and now Renfrow is out. Of course, Carr is out for the rest of the game with a strained groin.

Renfrow is a major key for the Raiders as a third-down receiver and as a punt returner. If the Raiders are going to win this game, they may have to do it without Renfrow and Carr but fortunately backup quarterback Marcus Mariota is keeping the Raiders in this game.
