Henry Ruggs III
WR - LV
Week 4 Outlook
Raiders head coach Jon Gruden said Monday that the team is “concerned” about rookie WR Henry Ruggs III’s hamstring and knee injuries.
Ruggs missed Week 3 and now it sounds like he may miss more time as he nurses multiple injuries. Gruden also said the team is concerned with fellow rookie WR Bryan Edwards and his ankle injury.
WR Henry Ruggs (knee/hamstring) will not play Sunday’s Week 3 contest against the Patriots.
Ruggs was limited on Thursday and has been ruled out for Sunday’s contest against the Patriots. He hauled in one reception for four yards in Week 2. Ruggs need additional time to recover and will look to return for Week 4. Look for Bryan Edwards to see an expanded role with Ruggs sidelined.
WR Henry Ruggs was a limited participant in Thursday's practice due to knee and hamstring injuries
Ruggs practiced in full on Wednesday, but was logged a limited session on Thursday. He was limited to one reception for four yards in Monday's Week 2 win over the Saints. Keep an eye on the injury reports Friday, but Ruggs is expected to play Sunday Week 3 against the Patriots.
Henry Ruggs had one reception for four yards on three targets in the Raiders' 34-24 win over the Saints Monday night.
Ruggs played despite dealing with a knee injury leading up to the game, but was not a big part of the Las Vegas attack Monday. The promising rookie is likely to have much more involvement moving forward and is a definite hold in all leagues.
Las Vegas Raiders wide receiver Henry Ruggs is officially active for Monday Night Football against the New Orleans Saints.
Henry Ruggs being active is a big boost for the Las Vegas Raiders offense. Ruggs will likely see a heavy dose of elite corner Marshon Lattimore in Week 3 and is also playing hurt, so it could be a long night for the rookie. Still, Ruggs has world-beating speed that should help free him up on at least a few routes if the Raiders get creative.
