Las Vegas Raiders receiver Jakobi Meyers, who suffered a concussion within the season opener, is just not anticipated to play Sunday on the Buffalo Payments, Raiders coach Josh McDaniels instructed reporters Friday.
“Nonetheless going via the protocol,” McDaniels stated in West Virginia, the place the Raiders have practiced this week. “So clearly, they will decide the tempo that goes via.”
Meyers, who signed a three-year, $33 million free agent contract with the Raiders in March, has not practiced since taking a success to the top from Denver Broncos security Kareem Jackson through the Raiders’ game-sealing drive on Sunday.
In that sport, Meyers had a game-high 9 catches, on 10 targets, for 81 yards and two touchdowns, the primary multi-TD catch sport of his five-year profession.
In Meyers’ absence, former Professional Bowl slot receiver Hunter Renfrow and rookie tight finish Michael Mayer may probably get further targets. Final week, Renfrow was not focused in a sport for the primary time in his five-year profession.
“I imply, Jakobi’s a extremely good soccer participant and, so, if he isn’t out there then all people has to step up and provides themselves nice alternatives to supply and that is a very good factor for them,” McDaniels stated. “And that is what the Nationwide Soccer League’s about. We cannot have any extra weeks the place we do not have any person that is banged up. So, the season has begun, and the accidents will occur as nature takes its course and different folks have alternatives right here to go on the market and produce and that is what we anticipate them to do. We’re excited for these alternatives for these guys.”
