Report: RB STAR to miss a month with groin injury

Oakland Raiders running back Marshawn Lynch is reportedly out up to a month with a groin injury, and possibly even longer than that.

According to Ian Rapoport of NFL.com, an MRI turned up a fairly significant injury, and Lynch is unlikely to return before November at the earliest, with injured reserve being a possibility.

This is essentially confirmation of what the Raiders feared. Lynch hasn’t been terribly effective — he only has one game this season where he’s eclipsed 100 rushing yards — but it still leaves a significant hole in their backfield that may not be filled this season.

Maybe this injury will lead Jon Gruden to reconsider his usage of his players, considering earlier this month he said he was not concerned about overworking Lynch.
