Raiders Linebacker Leaves Game With Injury

The Las Vegas Raiders are down another linebacker.

Raiders linebacker Darien Butler left Week 15's game against the New England Patriots with a rib injury and did not return.

The Raiders problems with finding a healthy linebacker next to Denzel Perryman continue. The team signed Butler this past August after he trimmed down last season and impressed at Arizona State, pulling in three interceptions and three passes defended. 

The twenty-two-year-old has just 10 total tackles over 13 games this season.

Luke Masterson and Curtis Bolton will both see an increase in playing time in Butler's absence.
