Marshawn Lynch is going to have an MRI on what was described as a little groin strain. Didn’t sound too serious, but he’s gonna have it checked out. Good timing for a bye week https://t.co/0x58a2LBmX

The Raiders are on a bye week, so Lynch will have time to heal before their next game. However, head coach Jon Gruden says he is concerned it could be a long-term injury.
