Raiders Safety Abram Likely Done for Season

First round pick Johnathan Abram tore his rotator cuff and labrum in the first quarter of Monday’s game. Abram played out the final three quarters of Oakland’s 24-16 win over Denver. Abram is having surgery this week and will likely be out for the remainder of the season.

Abram, a Mississippi State product, was selected 27th overall by the Raiders in this past draft. Oakland used one of their three first round selections on him. He is a hard hitting, ball hawk safety who was going to help this Oakland defense take the next step this year. Oakland ranked dead last in 2018 on defense.

Abram showed us a glimpse in Monday’s game of what he can be in this league. It is very impressive as he played with a torn shoulder, and we didn’t even know it.He was blitzing and flying around the field all night. He finished with 1 solo tackle and 4 assisted tackles. It is a shame that his rookie season will be short lived. Stay tuned for the latest news on Oakland’s safety.
