Oakland Raiders running back Marshawn Lynch will miss at least a month because of a groin injury.A person familiar with the injury said Friday that an MRI this week determined the severity of the injury. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the team has not made any announcement. NFL Network first reported the diagnosis.Lynch was hurt last week in Oakland's 27-3 loss to Seattle in London. The Raiders (1-5) are off this week and will play again on Oct. 28 at home against Indianapolis. Oakland could choose to place Lynch on injured reserve http://www.raidersauthorizedshops.com/authentic-gabe-jackson-jersey , which would require him to miss at least eight weeks.The 32-year-old Lynch has been one of the few bright spots for the Raiders this season. He ranks 12th in the league with 376 yards rushing, averaging 4.2 yards per carry with three touchdowns. Lynch ranks fourth in the NFL in rushing since Week 12 last season.Lynch's best game came in Oakland's only win when he ran for 130 yards last month against Cleveland when he showed off the power that earned him the nickname Beast Mode. Lynch came out of retirement last season in order to join the hometown Raiders before they move to Las Vegas in 2020. He is in the final year of his contract.With Lynch sidelined, the struggling Raiders will likely turn to Doug Martin and Jalen Richard to carry the bulk of the load at running back. Martin was signed to be the main backup to Lynch this season but has been unproductive so far. He has 27 carries for 99 yards and four catches for 5 yards this season. He is averaging just 3.0 yards per carry since the start of the 2016 season.Richard is more of a receiving back, ranking second on the team with 31 catches for 253 yards. Richard has carried the ball 11 times for 32 yards this year and has never had more than nine carries in a game in his three seasons in the NFL.The only other halfback on the roster is DeAndre Washington, who injured his knee in training camp and has not been active yet despite being healthy the past few weeks. Washington has rushed for 620 yards on 144 carries in two seasons in the NFL. His most productive game came as a rookie in 2016 when he ran for 99 yards and a TD on 12 carries against the Colts on Christmas Eve. After the Raiders lost to the Chargers on Sunday Seth Roberts Jersey , team owner Mark Davis said that “where this team is right now is my fault” and that head coach Jon Gruden is “going to be the stability” the organization needs to find better results.Davis made a big commitment to Gruden when he signed him to a 10-year contract to coach the team this offseason and Sunday’s comments showed that the team’s awful results on the field haven’t dimmed his belief in Gruden. On Monday, Gruden expressed gratitude for those sentiments.“I talk to Mark after every game and these are unpleasant conversations,” Gruden said, via ESPN.com. “It’s tough, man Authentic Donald Penn Jersey , we want to win. We want to win. We also want to do right by this organization and some of these decisions have been really tough, but I want to deliver for him and his family, certainly, and this organization and right now, it’s tough. But it’s great to have him support me and I appreciate it. But I feel the same way he does — I just want to win.”Gruden said that he knows “it’s dark right now http://www.raidersauthorizedshops.com/authentic-p.j.-hall-jersey ,” but that he believes there are “some great people” in place that will help provide the foundation for brighter days in the future. They need to find a lot more for those days to actually arrive as Gruden, Davis and company are playing the long game with the Raiders.
