HENDERSON, Nev. — Las Vegas Raiders quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo underwent surgery on his injured left foot after signing a free agent contract with the team in March, a league source confirmed to ESPN on Thursday.
“All trending great,” said a source.
Garoppolo signed a three-year, $72.75 million deal in Las Vegas on March 17, though his introductory news conference was delayed a day.
“He went through his process like we knew he would,” Raiders coach Josh McDaniels said. “Nothing happened that would surprise us based on the information we have.”
McDaniels would not elaborate on whether Garoppolo underwent a procedure, which was first reported by The Athletic.
McDaniels said only that there are no surprises and that the QB will not be on the field for the start of OTA practices. He did allow that Garoppolo could be out until the start of training camp, though.
Garoppolo was injured in Week 13 with the San Francisco 49ers last season and never returned.
First-round draft pick Tyree Wilson, the Texas Tech edge rusher taken seventh overall in last month’s draft, is also out, still rehabbing his surgically repaired right foot. on Nov. 12.
“We knew we weren’t going to play for over 100 days, so they did everything they could to make it right,” McDaniels said. “And when they’re all ready to go, then they finally get back on the field.
“Some of them might be ready before the end of spring; some of them might not. And we always err at this time of the year on wisdom… there in May, that’s a bad decision. … There they’re in all the meetings — all the football stuff they can do without harming the ability of anyone willing to come here for the season.”
