Raiders QB Jimmy Garoppolo ‘dodged a big bullet’

Raiders quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo “dodged a big bullet” in terms of internal injuries after leaving Sunday’s win with a back injury, coach Josh McDaniels said Monday.

“The prognosis is a lot better than it might otherwise have been,” McDaniels said.

Garoppolo continues to undergo testing and his status is uncertain for this Sunday when the Raiders (3-3) visit the Chicago Bears (1-5).

Garoppolo, 31, was reportedly taken to a local hospital for evaluation after departing the 21-17 home win against the New England Patriots.

He directed the Raiders’ final drive of the first half but did not return, leaving with a 13-3 lead after completing 14 of 22 passes for 162 yards with a touchdown and an interception.

Brian Hoyer replaced Garoppolo on Las Vegas’ first possession of the third quarter. He finished the game 6-for-10 passing for 102 yards.

Originally drafted by the Patriots in 2014, Garoppolo joined the Raiders this offseason after a six-year stint with the San Francisco 49ers.
