DePaola (knee - ACL) was placed on injured reserve Wednesday, Michael Gehlken of the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports.
DePaola suffered a torn ACL during Monday's season-opener against the Rams. The non-contact injury occurred during punt coverage, ending the 31-year-old long snapper's season. The Raiders are expected to sign rookie Trent Sieg as a replacement long snapper in the coming days.
DePaola is believed to have torn the ACL in his right knee during Monday's game against the Rams, Michael Gehlken of the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports.
DePaola's torn ACL was a non-contact injury he suffered during punt coverage, and now the Raiders will be on the search for a new long snapper with his season now over. The team is expected to workout Andrew East to potentially serve as DePaola's replacement.
DePaola has been ruled out for the remainder of Monday's game against the Rams with a knee injury, Matt Schneidman of The Mercury News reports.
DePaola is the Raiders sole longsnapper, so his absence should make for an interesting replacement. According to Schneidman, tight end Lee Smith and offensive lineman Jon Feliciano are the likely candidates to take over DePaola's role.
