The Raiders reportedly plan to get a second opinion on Abram’s shoulder before deciding how to proceed. She says they would consider placing him on injured reserve, which would allow him the possibility of returning this season.
My understanding is that #Raiders 1st-round pick, starting safety Jonathan Abram, will seek a second opinion/examination of his shoulder area, at this time, per source. A possibility lingers that Abram could be placed on IR as a result of his injury, source adds.
