HENDERSON, Nev. — The Las Vegas Raiders placed backup quarterback Marcus Mariota on injured reserve Monday with an undisclosed injury. NFL Network reported it was a pectoral injury, which would explain Mariota’s accuracy issues in camp.
Per the NFL’s COVID-19 rules tweaks, Mariota conceivably could return to Las Vegas’ 53-man active roster in three weeks.
