Las Vegas Raiders fullback Alec Ingold suffered a potentially major injury on Sunday night against the Kansas City Chiefs.
Ingold is a hard-working member of the Raiders rushing attack and special teams unit, and those familiar with the team understand just how important he is to the unit, even if he isn’t a household name.
The Raiders fullback suffered what looked to be a major knee injury and was carted off the field. He gave a thumbs up while doing so, but viewers could tell he was broken up while doing so.
Michele Tafoya claimed that Ingold was carted off the field in tears, and quickly went to the locker room. He was ruled out for the game almost immediately.
