Las Vegas Raiders quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo will miss Week 4 of the 2023 season due to a concussion. 

This is a big blow for a Las Vegas team that is 1-2 on the season and playing a crucial division matchup against the Los Angeles Chargers. 

Who is the Las Vegas Raiders starting quarterback in Week 4?

The Raiders will start rookie quarterback Aidan O’Connell, not veteran Brian Hoyer, in Week 4 against the Chargers. 

O’Connell played collegiately at Purdue, throwing for 65 touchdowns in four seasons. This will be his first NFL action.

Davante Adams anytime touchdown scorer

If there is anyone who can withstand a quarterback change, it’s Davante Adams. 

He's coming off a two-score game in Week 3, moving his season-long touchdown total to three, and he's made 25 receptions already this season.

Now, he gets to take on a Los Angeles Chargers defense that is banged up and allowing the second most yards per play in the NFL this season. I don't care who is at quarterback, Adams is going to find his way open.
