Raiders veteran safety Charles Woodson has dislocated shoulder
Woodson was injured in the final minutes of Sunday’s blowout loss to the Cincinnati Bengals. Head coach Jack Del Rio did not provide an update on his condition after the game.
Woodson, who turns 39 in three weeks, has not missed a game since a broken collarbone sidelined him for nine weeks in 2012. That season was the only one since 2005 in which Woodson did not play at least 14 games.
Woodson has made it clear that he does not want the injury to confine him to the sidelines, NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport reports.
Woodson started alongside Nate Allen in the defensive backfield on Sunday. Allen suffered a knee injury in the game, but while the team initially feared it could be a torn ACL, Rapoport reports Allen tore his MCL and will be out “several weeks.”
