However, the good news is that Allen’s ACL appears to be intact, which means this shouldn’t be a season-ending injury.
Even so, Rapoport expects Allen to miss “several” weeks.
- As of now, they’re unsure of Woodon’s timetable time table to return, according to Poston.
- Ian Rapoport confirms the report and adds that Woodson has already been telling people that he’s hoping to play this weekend.
- Rapoport adds that it’s more realistic that Woodson may be forced to sit a week or more.
The Raiders are reportedly re-signing S Taylor Mays, despite releasing him a little over a week ago.
Woodson, 38, returned to the Raiders on a one-year, $1.8 million contract that he signed back in March. He recorded seven tackles during Sunday’s game while playing a total of 64 snaps, according to Pro Football Focus.
- Schefter adds that Allen will still undergo further testing to determine the severity of the injury.
Beyond that, veteran S Charles Woodson is scheduled to have an MRI on his injured shoulder on Monday, so there is a great deal of concern regarding the team’s safety position.
Allen, 27, signed a four-year, $23 million contract that included $11.8 million guaranteed with the Raiders back in March. He stands to make base salaries of $2.9 million (2015), $4.9 million (2016), $5.85 million (2017), and $4.85 million (2018) over the remainder of the agreement.
We’ll have more updates regarding how long either player could be out as the news is available.
