PITTSBURGH -- Las Vegas Raiders quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo took an awkward fall during a first-half sack from the Pittsburgh Steelers, and appeared to have been injured on the play, according to the game's broadcast.

Garoppolo got wrapped up by Steelers linebacker T.J. Watt just before halftime, bending awkwardly as he fell to the ground. After being slow to get up, he limped off the field before being checked by trainers on the sideline. Before the team left the field, he went back to the locker room. 

It's unknown what the injury is or if Garoppolo will continue playing in the second half. 

If Garoppolo is unable to continue playing, the Raiders will roll with Brian Hoyer as their quarterback with Adain O'Connell as their backup. 

Before his departure, Garoppolo completed 12 of 18 passes for 155 yards and a touchdown, while also throwing an interception to Steelers cornerback Levi Wallace. The Raiders were pass-heavy during the opening half. 

All Steelers will continue to provide updates on Garoppolo's injury as information becomes available. 

UPDATE: Garoppolo has returned to the game for the Raiders.
