Twitter Reacts To Tragic News Surrounding Raiders WR Henry Ruggs III

Las Vegas Raiders wide receiver Henry Ruggs III was involved in a fatal and tragic accident earlier today. Fans and media alike were shaken as details have continued to come out.

First and foremost, our thoughts and prayers go out to the victims of today’s tragedy. Second, a player in Ruggs that was beginning to show promise in his second year might have possibly derailed his career today. By no means does that top or supersede the loss of life; however, there are intangibles at play. The season continues for the Raiders but to say 2021 has been rough is an understatement, at this point.

Upon TMZ confirming the story and initial details surfacing, all of Raiders Twitter reacted to the news. As human beings, most of the reactions were disappointment, sadness, anger, and shock. All of these are understandable within their realm. Sadness over someone losing their life, disappointment in a Raiders player, and anger because of the nature of drunk driving and its consequences.

Raider Nation Reacts

A truly somber day for fans and media alike. Devastating news for the families of those involved as well. Unfortunately, reality also exists for the Silver and Black. The season will not stop because of this tragedy, and the Raiders must tend to their season. It’s a difficult situation all around, and we will continue to learn more about this story as the rest of today and the week unfolds.
