Raiders’ Jakobi Meyers placed in concussion protocol after Week 1 collision

by Moxieplay

Las Vegas Raiders’ standout receiver, Jakobi Meyers, is currently undergoing the NFL‘s rigorous concussion protocol, revealed Coach Josh McDaniels in a recent statement. While he refrained from diving deep into specifics, the seriousness of Meyer’s safety was evident.

During the thrilling ending of the Raiders‘ 17-16 win over the Denver Broncos in Week 1 at Mile High, Meyers had an unfortunate collision. An inadvertent elbow from Broncos safety, Kareem Jackson, connected with Meyers’ head as the latter lost his balance on the grass. This mishap not only led to Jackson being penalized with a 15-yard unnecessary roughness but also proved pivotal for the Raiders. It enabled them to run the clock, especially given that Meyers was just shy of securing a first down near midfield.

Up until his exit, Meyers was stealing the show with an excellent performance. Raking in an impressive nine catches from ten attempts, he clocked in 81 yards and bagged two touchdowns. This performance was a milestone for Meyers, marking his first ever game with multiple touchdown catches. He seemed to have clicked instantly with Raiders’ new quarterback, Jimmy Garoppolo.

Meyers, after a solid four-season stint with the New England Patriots, made his way to Las Vegas, sealing a three-year deal worth $33 million this past March.

Jimmy Garoppolo, post-match, heaped praises on Meyers, commenting, “He’s been very consistent, honestly,” before adding,

He’s the same guy every day. Comes out, puts in the work and as a quarterback, when you have a guy like that, it makes it easy. You can trust them.

The aftermath of the on-field collision saw concerned teammates rally around Meyers. Despite remaining on the turf momentarily, he managed to walk off with assistance and even engaged with his teammates in the locker room post-game. However, he didn’t address the media, given that his condition was being assessed.

As the Raiders gear up for their next game against the Buffalo Bills, they’ll be training in West Virginia this week. The team and fans alike will be eagerly awaiting updates on Meyers’ condition and hoping for his swift recovery.
