Las Vegas Raiders have lost another starter for the year. Defensive lineman Gerald McCoy will miss the remainder of the season with a knee injury suffered in Week 1, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

McCoy, 33, left the team's Week 1 game against the Baltimore Ravens without returning. Head coach Jon Gruden told reporters on Tuesday the he believed the injury was long-term. McCoy will not reportedly be out for the season. 

The Raiders will replace McCoy with defensive lineman Damion Square. McCoy is the second starter to suffer a season-ending injury in Week 1, the first being guard Denzelle Good. 

“Losing McCoy is a big loss to our leadership network and our D-line," Gruden said.

Edge rusher Yannick Ngakoue (hamstring) and quarterback Marcus Mariota are also expected to miss significant time with injuries.

The Raiders will travel to Heinz Field this Sunday to play the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 2. The Steelers have a clean injury report after Week 1.
