The Las Vegas Raiders were without rookie wide receiver Henry Ruggs III on Sunday against New England and could be without him for a few more weeks.

Head coach Jon Gruden would not provide an update until Ruggs met with the trainers later today. Ruggs is currently dealing with a hamstring injury.

The season hasn’t gone as planned for the No. 12 overall pick as he has only four receptions for 59 yards and no touchdowns. Las Vegas had big plans for Ruggs and now it looks like those plans will be put on hold.

More From the AFC

  • The Raiders will likely be without another rookie as cornerback Damon Arnette could be heading to the IR with a thumb injury he re-aggravated on Sunday. He will meet with a specialist later today, but it looks like he could be out at least a month, according to NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport. 
  • Colts rookie wide receiver Michael Pittman Jr. had successful surgery for compartment leg syndrome in his calf Monday night. He will likely return in Week 8, a week after the team’s bye week, according to Rapoport.
  • Chargers running back Austin Ekeler proved to still be the lead back in Sunday’s 21-16 loss to the Panthers. Coming into the week, rookie Joshua Kelley was getting a lot of praise and was a waiver wire target in fantasy football. Ekeler had more of the workload and had 72 percent of the snap shares, compared to Kelley’s 30 percent. Last week, Ekeler had 56 percent snap shares compared to Kelley’s 52 percent. Ekeler finished with 59 rushing yards and a touchdown and caught all 11 targets for 84 yards. If you started Kelley this week, it wasn’t a great fantasy day as he rushed for 43 yards and caught two passes for nine yards.
