Raiders Had A Scary Moment Involving Trent Brown Before Sunday’s Game

Raiders offensive tackle Trent Brown was inactive for Sunday’s game against the Browns after feeling ill Sunday morning.

Brown tested positive for COVID-19 less than two weeks ago and was activated off the Reserve/COVID-19 list on Friday.

“We’re just going to say that he got ill here in the locker room and he’s being evaluated right now,” Gruden said. “We’ll update you as soon as we something. But I’m told everything is OK. We were expecting Trent to play today; he had a great practice on Friday.”

Raiders quarterback Derek Carr opened up on what exactly happened:

“All of a sudden, we come in and they’re wheeling him out and I’m like,’ Bro, what is going on?’ It was crazy and so we prayed,” Carr said, via ESPN. “As a team we prayed for him, we made sure he was OK, his family, because I’m sure they were scared to death.”

The team said in a statement that the illness was not COVID related.

Sam Young started in Brown’s place but departed with a knee injury. Brandon Parker ended up playing most of the game.

Brown has played only two games this season and that includes Week 1 when he only played three snaps because of a calf injury.
