Mario Edwards Jr. was carted to the locker room with an apparent leg injury in the first quarter of the Raiders preseason debut Friday.

Edwards Jr., who was playing for the first time since suffering a season-ending neck injury in Week 15 last year, was hurt while making a tackle on a run play by Arizona Cardinals running back David Johnson with 5:08 left in the first quarter.

Edwards had to be helped off the field by a trainer and fellow defensive lineman Khalil Mack and then was placed on a cart on the sidelines and taken to the locker room. The Raiders have not yet provided an update on Edwards’ status.

    Rough day for the kid. Didn’t shine out there today.

  • RaidingTexas

    Running game in general looked much improved tonight. We seem loaded at RB now. And Richard didn’t even play.

  • R8erEduc8er

    I’m still far from sold on GA3

  • Raider 8

    i don’t know guys. 31-10 is an azz whoopin’ no matter how you slice it.

    It matters, Dakato says so

  • Your Average Banana

    Lol. You’d probably be looking for a bridge right now if you were an AZ fan.

  • BroJackson34

    3rd team. Good job Al!

  • raiderfanmikep

    2min drill score again

  • Dakota

    So you are saying our expensive oline sucks, or your 6th round pro bowl RB sucks instead of the play calling?

  • BroJackson34

    Atkinson=KR?

  • MsoRaider343

    Funny …

  • raiderfanmikep

    only if he doesnt fumble

  • Chris in NY

    GA3 looks AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Your Average Banana

    I’d say to remind him of Flynn, Schaub, Burris et al, but he never said it. We made it up…or something.

  • starters 3-3.

  • Lowdown_in_Beijing

    Always figured University of Phoenix was just an online school…

  • RaidO

    It’s been a while since we have seen a Raiders RB breaking runs like this even if it’s only preseason.
    Nice work from GA3

  • BoKnows

    Exactly what I was about to type

  • Tecmo Bo

    FIRE MURRAY NOW!!!
    GA3NATION!!!!

  • Alex7

    yup, they executed vs a SB contender’s equals. yay!

  • Raider 8

    not bad either really.

  • raiderfanmikep

    very deflating getting a great run back then dropping it

  • Alex7

    sure seems that half of Arizona could come watch the Raiders in Vegas.

  • nope.

  • Lowdown_in_Beijing

    Nap’s rookie preseason vs. cowboys is the last time I can remember..

  • RaidO

    Sounds about right

  • Alex7

    there was that Pryor kid…

  • Raiderkoolaid

    Year before last against KC.

  • BroJackson34

    BAHAHAHAHA I’m sure they’ll all make the team.

  • DanfromVegas

    The game in Vegas was on ly available on Fox. Arizona commentators are super lame. Only Cardinal players are being interviewed.

  • RaidO

    Talking about RB

  • raiderfanmikep

    so local fans. LA fans Oakland Fans and AZ fans. might fill up the 65,000

  • BoKnows

    Little dissapointed with cooper. Should have easily tapped the second foot and looked like he short armed the next deep one. Overall looks like we will have some depth in areas. Cant wait for the real games.

  • Alex7

    me too!

  • raiderfanmikep

    same on nfl network

  • BroJackson34

    yup

  • MsoRaider343

    You be Vegas fool?

  • Chris in NY

    A+ on the eyeball test tonight. Would like to see what he looks like for a couple of series with our starting o-line.

  • Lowdown_in_Beijing

    Mario Edward Jr. had emergency hipster surgery and no longer sports a beard!

  • DanfromVegas

    Also lots of Raiders fans in Vegas. Lots of non-Raiders fans here who would buy season tickets.

  • Raider 8

    raider nation getting loud down there at the end.

  • Purvisman/Eternal Optimist

    I didn’t say it would make sense.

  • Tony Rasmussen

    Amazing as he is, he goes out of bounds untouched a lot…

  • Dakota

    How dare you? Murray made the pro bowl in a year where no one else wanted to go and all good RBs went down with injuries…..he is therefore our unquestioned starter….ask Alex.

  • Oak R8rs33.01

    I like the color guy. Ex Cardinal I’m sure but I don’t know his name. He’s funny and informative.
