More tough news for DJ Hayden, who since being drafted by the Raiders has continued to struggle with injuries.
A report from Kevin Patra of NFL.com indicates Hayden foot injury could limit him until training camp.
“It now appears that Hayden’s injured right foot — which he rolled several weeks ago — might be more serious than originally expected. The injury could keep the second-year defensive back out until training camp.”
The Raiders hoped to count on DJ Hayden having a breakout sophomore season after a lackluster rookie campaign. Any set backs would be devastating for the young player, who has already overcome so much.
While the news could be more a pre caution on behalf of the Raiders coaching and medical staff, recent history has shown a walking boot is never a good sign for a player.
