According to NFL Insider Tom Pelissero, Raiders starting safety and leader on the defensive side of the ball Johnathan Abram will miss the rest of the season.
Abram will undergo season-ending surgery Thursday after dislocating his shoulder during Monday’s game against the Browns.
Entering the game against the Browns, Abram had played every defensive snap in 2021. The 27th overall pick in the 2019 draft had really turned the corner in his third season. Abram has 116 total tackles this season with five tackles for loss, three quarterback hits, an interception, four passes defensed, and a fumble recovery.
The Raiders used Johnathan Abram as a box safety, often lining up in a stacked position as a linebacker. His replacement for the rest of the season will likely be third-year safety Roderic Teamer.
