Raiders Linebacker Divine Deablo injury update (forearm)

The linebacker position has been a problem for the Las Vegas Raiders. One of the guys who hasn’t gotten off to the best start to the season is Divine Deablo. It has been effective against the run, though.

Deablo was listed as questionable for the game against the Jacksonville Jaguars all week long on the injury report. He took the field to begin the game, but as he was being carried off, he sustained another injury. He has a forearm injury and is out for the rest game.

Taking over for Denzelle Perryman and Deablo is Blake Martinez. Due to the injuries hurting the linebacker position, he will play more. Younger players who have largely played special teams, like Luke Masteron, could get an opportunity as a result of the injury.

Even though he had difficulties, Deablo was a valuable player on the run. The backup linebackers should be able to contribute in Jacksonville.
