Crosby reveals he played for Raiders with multiple injuries


If you didn't already know that Maxx Crosby is a pretty tough dude, he provided some further evidence via his Twitter account Thursday.

Crosby shared a photo of himself coming out of surgery, saying that he dealt with a labrum tear and a "broken metal plate in his hand" while starting in all 16 of the Raiders' games this season.

After racking up double-digit sacks in a dominant rookie season, Crosby finished 2020 with seven sacks, 39 combined tackles, a pass deflection and a fumble recovery to his credit.

A 2019 fourth-round draft pick out of Eastern Michigan, Crosby has been one of the Raiders' best pickups under general manager Mike Mayock and coach Jon Gruden.

Crosby luckily should have plenty of time to recover and heal up before next season, but clearly there can be no question as to the 23-year-old's toughness going forward.
