Adam Lefkoe reports that Raiders rookie S Johnathan Abram tore his rotator cuff and labrum during the first quarter of last night’s game.
Lefkoe says Abram is scheduled to have surgery this week and is likely out for the season.
Vic Tafur has confirmed the news.
According to Anderson, it’s possible that this injury could lead to Abram being placed on injured reserve, depending on the outcome of the examination.
Abram, 22, was selected with the No. 27 overall pick in the first round by the Raiders out of Mississippi State. He signed a four-year, $11,495,198 contract including a $6,380,144 signing bonus with the Raiders.
Oakland will have a fifth-year option to pick up on Abram in 2022.
In 2019, Abram has appeared in one game for the Raiders and recorded five tackles and a pass defense.
We’ll have more regarding Abram as the news is available.
