Coach Jon Gruden believes Worley had shoulder surgery recently, Michael Gehlken of the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports.
Worley was traded and released during the 2018 offseason, eventually landing in Oakland where he made 10 appearances (nine starts) after serving a four-game suspension in September. The 23-year-old cornerback is scheduled to become a restricted free agent and thus figures to be back with the Raiders in 2019. Shoulder surgery might throw a hitch in the plan, but he'll likely be healthy for training camp.
Worley (shoulder) was placed on injured reserve Monday, Matt Schneidman of The San Jose Mercury News reports.
Worley was initially listed as questionable for Monday's game against the Broncos and was a limited pratice participant all week, but he now lands on season-ending injured reserve. Expect Nick Nelson and Bene Benwikere to see a notable uptick in snaps throughout the final two games of the season.
Worley (shoulder) is questionable for Monday's game against the Broncos, Michael Gehlken of the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports.
Worley was a limited participant at practice this week as he's battled shoulder issues on-and-off since late October. The 24-year-old missed the first four weeks of the season due to a suspension but has since played in all 10 games for the Raiders. Nick Nelson and Bene Benwikere could see heavily increased roles against Denver with starting cornerback Gareon Conley (concussion) also questionable.
Worley (shoulder) was a non-participant at Thursday's practice.
Worley has now dealt with shoulder injuries on two separate occasions this season, but he's yet to miss a game. His practice status this upcoming weekend will give an indication of whether he's trending towards suiting up Monday against the Broncos. If Worley is forced to sit out, Rashaan Melvin and Nick Nelson stand in line to see increased work at cornerback.
Worley (shoulder) is active for Sunday's game against the Chiefs.
Worley was initially listed as questionable for Sunday's tilt against the Chiefs after having been limited in practice all week, but will ultimately suit up Week 13. He'll draw the start at left cornerback, and attempt to contain Patrick Mahomes and Kansas City's offense.
