Thursday October 23rd, 2014

Raiders defensive end LaMarr Woodley tore his bicep last Sunday and will likely miss the rest of the season, Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network reports.

Raiders interim head coach Tony Sparano said Wednesday that Woodley's injury "could be" serious. Woodley did not practice Wednesday, Sparano said. 

Woodley, 30, signed a two-year deal with the Raiders this offseason after spending seven seasons with the Steelers

Benson Mayowa, a second-year pro, is listed as Woodley's backup. Justin Tuck, who plays opposite Woodley on the defensive line, was limited in practice, Sparano said.

The Raiders are 0-6 and play against the Browns in Cleveland on Sunday.
