Jimmy Garoppolo is in the “final stages” of the NFL’s concussion protocol.

That’s according to Las Vegas Raiders coach Josh McDaniels, who added Garoppolo will be able to participate in practice.

Garoppolo was placed in the league’s concussion protocols following the Raiders’ 23-18 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday, Sept. 24. The move came as a surprise because Garoppolo finished the game for the Silver & Black and, according to NFL.com, he didn’t exhibit “concussion symptoms until after the game.”

Aidan O’Connell filled in for Garoppolo last Sunday throwing for 238 yards and one interception. The rookie was also sacked seven times, six of which came from former Raider Khalil Mack.

McDaniels also provided an update on wide receiver Davante Adams, who left last Sunday’s loss to the Chargers temporarily with a shoulder injury. Adams finished the game with eight catches for 75 yards.

“Doing better, won’t be out there today, but doing better,” McDaniels said. “I’m not going to make any big prognostications in terms of that, but [he’s] doing great, working at it, doing everything he can to get himself to where he wants to be. Won’t be out there today, though.”

Jimmy Garoppolo and Davante Adams will have one extra day to get healthy as the Raiders face off against the Packers on Monday Night Football.
