The Oakland Raiders may be without rookie receiver Hunter Renfrow for a while, if not the rest of the season, after an injury sustained during Sunday’s loss to the New York Jets.

Report: Broken rib, punctured lung

NFL Network reported on Monday that Renfrow has a broken rib and punctured lung. Head coach Jon Gruden told media later in the day that Renfrow may be out for the season pending the results of medical testing.

A fifth-round pick out of Clemson, Renfrow was allowed to make the cross-country flight home with his teammates after the game. He made his second start of the season against the Jets and said after the game that he’d taken a big hit early that sidelined him briefly, though he felt as though he’d had the wind knocked out of him.

He returned to the game only to have a defensive player land on him after a third-down conversion in the second half. At that point an official intervened out of concern, and Renfrow didn’t return.

Renfrow has 36 catches for 396 yards and two touchdowns; 23 of his receptions are for first downs.

Gruden said undrafted rookie Keelan Doss, who has been active for only five games, could see more time in the slot.
