Report: Raiders Rookie Henry Ruggs III Injured in an Off-Field Incident

by June 1, 2020 0 comments

Wide receiver Henry Ruggs III, one of the Raiders’ first-round picks, has had an unfortunate incident in which he was pinned between two vehicles and punctured his thigh.

The Raiders have released a statement saying they respect Ruggs’ privacy and have no further comment at this time.  His femoral artery was an inch away from being hit.

Ruggs’ father confirmed that he is alright.

Ruggs is one of the fastest and most talented receivers in the 2020 draft class. He was drafted a bit earlier than expected at 12th overall, which may have been a product of his  4.27-second 40-yard dash at the NFL scouting combine.

Ruggs brings speed, versatility, and reliability to a Raiders offense that’s trying to put together a unit to compete with the Chiefs in 2020. He’ll open up the middle of the field and pose a huge over-the-top threat to the defenses of the AFC West.
