The Las Vegas Raiders can't seem to catch a break. This team had so much promise leading up to the season, but they've limped their way to a 2-6 record. No one thought this would be the case, especially after they landed Davante Adams in the offseason.

One big reason this team has struggled is they've been without Darren Waller. The star tight end has been out with a hamstring injury. Now, he'll be out for at least the next four games, as the Raiders placed him on Injured Reserve.

This is yet another blow for Derek Carr and the offense. The hope is Waller can return from his IR stint and dominate opposing defenses like usual.
