Raiders left tackle Jared Veldheer tore his triceps during practice on Wednesday, and could miss the entire season.

Allen mentioned that the team could place Veldheer on injured reserve with a designation to return. The Raiders can do that only after the team’s 53-man roster is set before Week 1.
If the Raiders use the tag with Veldheer, he’ll be out for a minimum of eight weeks of the regular season.
Veldheer might not be a household name, but he was the Raiders best player.
