Rumors surfaced regarding an off-the-field injury involving new Raiders WR Henry Ruggs III. Oakland has put out a statement saying, “The Raiders are aware of a report regarding an off-field injury to Henry Ruggs III. Respecting Henry’s right to medical privacy, the team will not be commenting on the report.” (Vic Tafur on Twitter)
From a number of reports, Ruggs III appears to have escaped a major thigh injury helping a friend move over the weekend. While these are just rumors, the Raiders seem to have acknowledged that something did indeed occur with Ruggs III this weekend. The rumor started as a post on a SEC fansite message board. Expect him to be ok, but also expect Ruggs III and/or the team to address the issue in the coming days.
