Raiders G Gabe Jackson Expected To Miss Around Eight Weeks With MCL Injury


Vic Tafur, of the Athletic citing league sources, reports that Raiders G Gabe Jackson is expected to miss “roughly” eight weeks after suffering an MCL injury during Thursday’s practice.

Raiders HC Jon Gruden told reporters that they had some “concern” about Jackson’s injury after he couldn’t put any pressure on one of his legs before being taken off on a cart.

Oakland could turn to either Denver Kirkland or Jordan Devey in place Jackson to open the season.

Jackson, 28, is a former third-round pick of the Raiders back in 2014. He was in the final year of his four-year, $2.952 million contract when he agreed to a new five-year, $56 million extension that included $26 million guaranteed with the Raiders in 2017. 

Jackson stands to make base salaries of $6.75 million and $9.35 million over the next two years of the agreement.

In 2018, Jackson appeared in 13 games for the Raiders.
