Raiders announce Jimmy Garoppolo's availability for MNF matchup vs. Detroit Lions
In a crucial development for the Las Vegas Raiders, quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo, who was sidelined due to a back injury in the previous game, is now declared “good to go” for Monday night's clash with the Detroit Lions.
Garoppolo Is ‘Good To Go'
Raiders head coach Josh McDaniels provided the eagerly awaited update on Garoppolo's status, confirming that the quarterback is ready to make his return after a brief absence due to a back injury. McDaniels expressed his optimism, noting, “Yeah, I think he's got a little pep in his step.”
“Yeah, I think he's got a little pep in his step,” McDaniels said. “Again, he's much the same as everybody else is…he wants to get us headed in the right direction and start doing some things that we haven't been doing as well better. But good leadership, good energy at practice, good execution. Working with everybody across the board, and just really trying to put our focus where it needs to be and have good days and stack them this week and hopefully finish with a good one today in the red zone, some of our work down there, and in the scoring area.”
Why it Matters
The quarterback's injury occurred just before halftime during the Raiders' victory over the New England Patriots on October 15. Concerned about a potential internal injury, Garoppolo was transported to a local hospital for thorough testing and scans. The team and fans alike anxiously awaited his return to the lineup, which will come on Monday against the Lions.
