Raiders will be without QB Jimmy Garoppolo vs. Bears

The Las Vegas Raiders have been on a bit of a roll as of late. The storied NFL franchise has won two straight games against the Packers and the Patriots on their home field. The team has seemingly got something going on the defensive side of the football. Meanwhile, they’re doing enough offensively to get the best of their opponents lately.

Unfortunately, last week’s win over the Patriots came at the cost of the health of veteran quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo. The former 49ers QB  is dealing with a back injury that he suffered in the game. As a result,  fellow veteran Brian Hoyer took over during their third win of the season.

It appears that the Raiders will be without Garoppolo once again in Week 7, with the team ruling him out of Sunday’s game, according to ESPN.

Las Vegas Raiders quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo will not play in Sunday’s game at the Chicago Bears because of his back injury, a source told ESPN’s Adam Schefter on Thursday.

Fortunately, the Raiders have a veteran who knows the system very well in Hoyer and a talented young rookie Aidan O’Connell, who may give the team the best chance to win. The team hasn’t made a decision yet on which player will be the starter.

As such, the Raiders (3-3) will turn to either rookie Aidan O’Connell, who started Las Vegas’ Week 4 loss at the Los Angeles Chargers with Garoppolo out with a concussion, or 15th-year veteran Brian Hoyer, who replaced the injured Garoppolo at halftime of Sunday’s defeat of the New England Patriots.

Although the team will be without their leader under center, the Raiders will be facing a Bears team that has struggled all season long and is currently in contention for being the worst team in the league, which obviously bodes well for Las Vegas, even though they’ll be on the road.
