HENDERSON, Nev. Las Vegas Raiders defensive tackle Gerald McCoy suffered a season-ending knee injury Monday night in the season-opening overtime win over the Baltimore Ravens, a source confirmed Wednesday.
Raiders coach Jon Gruden said on Tuesday that he feared McCoy had suffered a “long-term” injury, the same day it was revealed that right-back Denzelle Good had suffered a torn ACL in his left knee and was lost in the season.
Defensive end Yannick Ngakoue (hoarding) and backup quarterback Marcus Mariota (quad) were also mentioned as injured.
For McCoy, 33, it is the second season in a row that the six-time Pro Bowler has had his season ended early due to injury. He suffered a broken right quadriceps in training camp with the Dallas Cowboys in 2020, before signing a one-year, $ 1.25 million free agency deal with Las Vegas on August 4th.
McCoy played nine defensive snaps against the Ravens and went down on a 49-yard pass from Lamar Jackson to Sammy Watkins with 6 minutes, 31 seconds to play in regulation before being run off the field.
The NFL Network first reported McCoy was lost for the season.
