Raiders HC Josh McDaniels Gives Injury Update On Trevon Moehrig, Andre James

Las Vegas Raiders head coach Josh McDaniels spoke to the media today, addressing several topics, though at the top of the agenda was an injury update. The Raiders suffered several injuries, but two key losses were defensive back Trevon Moehrig and center Andre James.

Losing James was especially crushing for McDaniels and Co. James went down on the final offensive play, leaving by ambulance immediately following the game. While Moehrig is dealing with a hip injury and has yet to practice. Both players play vital positions for the Raiders. James’s going down leaves the offensive line extremely short-handed. As for Moehrig, the Silver and Black has veteran Duron Harmon behind him, along with UDFA standout Isaiah Pola-Mao. It’s definitely not the start that Raiders fans envisioned for the 2022 season, a loss to the Los Angeles Chargers coupled with many injuries.

When asked about specific updates or a report on an individual, McDaniels offered only a vague, straightforward response.

“Yeah, no reports. They’re all obviously working to, you know, get out there and see how it goes today. I’d say, we’ll see how today goes. For some of those guys, for sure. [We are] hopeful that we’ll get a few of those guys [back]. If not most of them, back here soon. But they’re all they’ve all been getting treatment here now for 48 hours. As I said, we’ll see how today goes and then try to evaluate it from there.”

Obviously, the aforementioned players are being evaluated, so to give anything other than that response could be risky. Besides, fans should be accustomed to this head coach by now. Much like his mentor in New England, McDaniels keeps everything close to the chest. Regardless, the Raiders are likely anxious going into this Sunday. These injuries are significant, and that’s putting it lightly.

We’ll be watching for an official injury report today.
