Las Vegas Raiders quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo did not practice on Wednesday due to his neck injury that he suffered in Week 6 against the New England Patriots.
Garoppolo was replaced by Brian Hoyer in that game, and the veteran led the Raiders to a win to move to 3-3 on the season.
Hoyer or Aidan O’Connell may be called upon in Week 7 with Garoppolo potentially facing an uphill battle to suit up.
Jimmy Garoppolo injury status for Week 7 game vs. Chicago Bears
NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport called it a “challenge” for Garoppolo to be able to suit up to face the Bears in Week 7.
Best bet to place for Raiders vs. Bears in NFL Week 7
With the Bears already listing Justin Fields as doubtful and Jimmy G trending in the wrong direction, the UNDER is the best bet to make in a game that could feature multiple backup quarterbacks.
The Raiders quietly possess a top 10 defense in yards per play allowed this season, and the Bears also have injuries in their running back room with Khalil Herbert on injured reserve.
Plus, Chicago scored just 13 points last week and has Tyson Bagent set to lead its offense. I’ll expect a low-scoring affair if Jimmy G misses Week 7.
