Donald Penn reportedly out for season, will miss first game since 2007

Donald Penn Raiders

Oakland Raiders offensive lineman Donald Penn had a similar streak going to the noteworthy one Joe Thomas had snapped earlier in the season, and Penn’s incredible run is about to meet the same fate.

Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports that Penn will undergo foot surgery and miss the remainder of the 2017 season. The left tackle has been one of the most reliable players in league history, as he has appeared in every game since 2007.

Penn, who was with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers before the Raiders, has never missed a game in his career. The 34-year-old’s absence will likely exacerbate the issues Oakland has had on the offensive side of the ball all year.

Between Thomas suffering a season-ending injury earlier in the year and Eli Manning being benched for a week, we have seen a lot of impressive streaks come to an end during the 2017 season.
