HENDERSON, Nev. — Las Vegas Raiders defensive tackle Gerald McCoy suffered a season-ending left knee injury in Monday night’s Week 1 overtime win against the Baltimore Ravens, a source confirmed Wednesday.
Raiders coach Jon Gruden said Tuesday he feared McCoy had suffered a “long-term” injury, the same day it was revealed right guard Denzelle Good had suffered a torn ACL in his left knee and was lost for the season.
The Raiders on Wednesday found a reinforcement for the offensive line in the wake of Good’s injury. Jordan Simmons, who was on the Seattle Seahawks‘ practice squad, was signed to the Raiders’ 53-man roster. Simmons began his career with the Raiders as an undrafted free agent in 2017.
For McCoy, 33, it is the second straight season the six-time Pro Bowler has had his season ended early because of injury. He suffered a ruptured right quadriceps in training camp with the Dallas Cowboys in 2020 before signing a one-year, $1.25 million free-agent deal with Las Vegas on Aug. 4.
McCoy played nine defensive snaps against the Ravens — a 33-27 victory — and went down on a 49-yard pass from Lamar Jackson to Sammy Watkins with 6 minutes, 31 seconds to play in regulation before being carted off the field.
NFL Network was first to report McCoy was lost for the season.
