The injury news on Johnathan Abram is as bad as Oakland Raiders fans feared.

The rookie safety will be placed on injured reserve and undergo season-ending shoulder surgery on Thursday, Jon Gruden told reporters Wednesday.

Abram suffered a torn rotator cuff and labrum in his shoulder during the first quarter of the Monday night win over the Broncos. He played through the injury and finished with five tackles and a pass defended.

Abram was one of three players drafted in the first round this year by the Raiders and will now be taking a “redshirt year,” as Gruden termed it. This is a big loss for a team that had been revitalized by its draft picks.

Oakland Raiders rookie Johnathan Abram is facing the possibility of undergoing season-ending shoulder surgery, according to reports.

Abram suffered a torn rotator cuff and labrum in his shoulder during the first quarter of his team’s win over the Denver Broncos on Monday night, Adam Lefkoe reported.

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.

Abram was one of three players drafted in the first round this year by the Raiders. The 22-year-old was credited with five tackles and a pass defensed in his debut.
