The Oakland Raiders had another disappointing year last season going 4-12. In the offseason the Raiders traded for back up quarterback Matt Flynn from Seattle for two draft picks.
One of the Raiders main concern this season is protecting Matt Flynn, but that took a big hit today when Raiders insider @BairCSN announced that starting LT Jared Veldheer has torn his left triceps. Veldheer will be headed for the IR with designation to return later in the year.
Veldheer torn triceps. Out for months. ir with designation to return. Huge loss.

The Raiders next preseason game is Friday, August 16th, against the Saints. The LT position will be interesting to watch to see if anyone can step up in Veldheers' absence.
