Raiders Not Optimistic About Matt McGloin Playing In Wildcard Game

Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that while the Raiders ruling QB Matt McGloin out for their Wildcard matchup against the Texans, Oakland is not optimistic about him playing in their playoff game.

The Raiders listed McGloin’s injury as a shoulder issue but he specifically has an injury is to his trapezius that’s acting like a pinched nerve, according to Rapoport.

This could lead to the Raiders turning to rookie QB Connor Cook next weekend.

McGloin, 26, wound up signing on with the Raiders as an undrafted free agent out of Penn State back in 2013. He surprisingly has managed to make the 53-man roster each year and signed a one-year, $2.553 million contract with the Raiders as a restricted free agent this past April

This season, McGloin has completed two of four passing attempts for 29 yards passing and no touchdowns or interceptions.

We’ll have more regarding McGloin’s status and the Raiders as the news is available.
