Nick Kwiatkoski Could Miss Some Time

Las Vegas Raiders linebacker Nick Kwiatkoski's (pectoral) MRI exam confirmed that he didn't suffer a torn pectoral muscle in the Week 1 win over the Panthers, according to a source. He could still miss time, but the injury isn't as severe as it initially looked, and the Raiders are in the process of determining his timeline. Kwiatkoski is a run-stuffing linebacker that can be of use in deeper PPR leagues, but it looks like he'll miss at least a little time. That will put more responsibility on Cory Littleton in the middle of the team's defense, with Raekwon McMillan potentially filling the middle linebacker role that Kwiatkoski occupies. In a Monday night showdown at home against the Saints in Week 2, the Raiders defense should be left on the waiver wire.

Nick Kwiatkoski Ready To Be Full-Time Starter

Las Vegas Raiders linebacker Nick Kwiatkoski started eight games last season for the Bears before signing a three-year, $21 million deal with the Raiders this offseason to become a full-time starter. A fourth-round pick in 2016, Kwiatkoski played a bit role his first three years, but the 27-year-old showed off his abilities when he was granted more playing time in 2019 due to injuries to the position. He had 76 tackles (eight for loss), three sacks, one forced fumble and an interception while impressing as a blitzer, against the run and in coverage. Kwiatkoski will be asked to be the leader of Las Vegas' linebacking corps in 2020, and it's something he's very comfortable with. The middle of the Raiders defense has been a problem spot for a while, so they're hoping Kwiatkoski's addition will change that.

Raiders Sign Nick Kwiatkoski

The Las Vegas Raiders signed former Chicago Bears linebacker Nick Kwiatkoski to an undisclosed deal on Monday, according to a source. Kwiatkoski had his best season in 2019 with Chicago, totaling 76 tackles (56 solo), three sacks, one forced fumble and one interception over a full season. He'll help a Raiders team that is desperately trying to improve and gain consistency with their linebacking corps.
