PITTSBURGH — Raiders offensive tackle Alex Leatherwood will not return to the game with an oblique injury. He suffered the injury in the first half of the team’s game against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Leatherwood never exited the game, however, he was examined at half time, and the team determined he could not return after the injury.
Leatherwood will be replaced by his backup Brandon Parker. Before exiting, Leatherwood had allowed three pressures and been called for two penalties over the course of the game. He is the first injury that the Raiders have suffered today, but they were already missing guard Richie Incognito, so this is yet another blow to their offensive line.
