Abram will reportedly miss the rest of the season and undergo surgery after suffering a torn rotator cuff and labrum.
It was initially feared that Conley suffered some sort of neck injury, as his head snapped down in a violent manner. However, Jon Gruden later claimed he thought the former Ohio State Buckeye will be okay, and also called out Abram for his violent play.
It's unknown whether Abram suffered the injury in his hit on Conley, although it looked severe on the outset.
“I think he probably got a little bit too reckless at times,” Gruden said about Abram. “Made some great plays, some impact plays… I think some tackles he’s gotta make for us – he missed. His debut was pretty good.”
Abram looked very solid on the back end before his injury, and the Raiders themselves pulled out an impressive win over Denver in their first game post-AB. The former Mississippi State Bulldog was selected in the first round of the 2019 NFL Draft.
