Report: Raiders' Williams trying to play with torn labrum


Raiders receiver Tyrell Williams reportedly again is dealing with an injury. 

NFL Media's Ian Rapoport reported Monday that Williams has a torn labrum in his shoulder. But Rapoport says Williams will try to play through the injury after rehabbing a few weeks.

Williams, 28, played in 14 regular-season games in his first year with the Raiders last season while dealing with a foot injury that hampered him throughout the season. He hauled in 42 passes for 651 yards receiving, his lowest since his rookie year. Williams also scored six touchdowns in 2019. 

This isn't Williams' first time dealing with a labrum injury, too. He played his final college season at Western Oregon with a torn labrum in his right shoulder, an injury that eventually required surgery.

Missing Williams would certainly be a blow to the Raiders. But they are deep at the position after picking both Henry Ruggs and Bryan Edwards in the first three rounds of the 2020 NFL Draft. Along with Williams, Ruggs and Edwards, the Raiders also have receivers Hunter Renfrow and Nelson Agholor and Zay Jones on their depth chart. 

The Raiders will be hoping for the best, but they should be well equipped if they lose Williams.
