The Oakland Raiders may have lost a significant contributor for the season after safety Hiram Eugene went down in the team's first preseason game earlier this week. Eugene was carted off the field after a scary collision and now has reportedly had surgery on his hip. While there's no definitive timetable for his recovery, he does stand a chance of missing the entire season, according to a report.
John Clayton passed along an update on Eugene on Saturday night, noting the Raiders' safety already underwent a procedure on his hip.
Raiders S Hiram Eugene had hip surgery Saturday. He could be out for the season. Tough break.
Eugene had played well before in the preseason game before going down with the injury, recording a team-high four tackles. This offseason, he re-signed with the Raiders and was expected to contribute in the secondary, providing depth at the very least.
