    Broken foot, out for the season.

    I'm a little torn. Will we actually miss him that much on a defense that may be the worst we've seen on this franchise, maybe ever?

    I dunno.

    He was playing better in recent weeks and was of the guys who I was thinking could improve over last half of season. No question we need more DE help next year.

    We need DE help this year. We’re in trouble with how horrible our pass rush is. If Ferrell doesn’t have some amazing transformation in the second half we’re screwed

    Not how anyone wanted to see this play out, especially not Arden Key.

    What he can do now is rest and heal his body while working with Bruckner on film and technique.

    Don’t like to lose anyone and especially a guy that has been playing better of late, but the team is probably better suited to absorb the loss of Key as opposed to a player at some other position... the team has been carrying 5 DEs and generally only having 4 active on game day. So just have to roll with Mad Max, Ferrell, Mayowa, and Mauro. At least we don’t need to rely on bringing a player in off the street to jump right in and play like where the team is at LB (and has been at wr).

    I'm still looking for a link from the team.

    Or Schefter, or Glazer, or that Rapsheet guy...

    edit:
    Ian Rapoport @RapSheet

    #Raiders DE Arden Key suffered a broken foot on Sunday and is expected to be out for the season, source said. Key, who had a sack in each of the last two games, is getting a second opinion from Dr. Robert Anderson to confirm the initial view.

    Terrible thread title. If I didn't already see the news earlier, I would have thought he was dead.

    No one even noticed but on Lawson's PI that put them inside the 10 Key had another RTF penalty that would've fucked us anyways. I hate the rule but at some point you have to adjust and he hit Stafford from the side and could've avoided the 'body weight' rule pretty easily and still slammed him down. Key was improving but its stupid shit like that where its fucked us this year.

    Hope the kid heals up and can try and find a role next year but when you can find a guy like Benson Mayowa off the street that looks better than him... it doesn't give me much hope.

    I'm not quite ready to throw in the towel just yet but he is going to have his work cut out for him next year.

    Crosby doesn’t get half them plays if Key wasn’t hurt.

    Addition by subtraction- Key hasn’t proved shit to me, I’d rather have Crosby. Hope Key gets healthy though.
