The Las Vegas Raiders have placed linebacker Micah Kiser on the IR list following an injury in Sunday’s practice.
Since Kiser was placed on IR before final roster cuts, he will stay there for the entire 2022 season.
Micah Kiser was signed in the off-season away from the Denver Broncos.
“Kiser has appeared in 36 games with 11 starts, recording 94 tackles (51 solo), three passes defensed and one forced fumble,” the Raiders said in a press release at the time of Kiser’s signing.

To fill the hole at the linebacker position left by Kiser, the Raiders have signed Curtis Bolton. He appeared in five games for the Detroit Lions and spent time on the Colts and 49ers practice squads.
This is the second big blow to the Raiders’ linebacker squad. Earlier during training camp, outside linebacker Kyler Fackrell was also placed on the IR list. Fackrell signed with the team during the offseason.
