Update 7:21 pm PST:
Damon Arnette left the game with a groin injury and is questionable to return. Amik Robertson is filling in for Arnette as the Raiders depth at cornerback will be tested while they try to dig out of this 21-0 halftime deficit.
Update 6:46 pm PST:
Jermaine Eluemunor is back in the game at right guard, still no word on why he was out.
The Las Vegas Raiders got some unfortunate injury news early in the game against the Los Angeles Chargers on Monday Night Football. Starting cornerback Trayvon Mullen exited the game after the first drive and left on a cart.
Mullen suffered a foot injury and the Raiders official Twitter account shared that he’s doubtful to return shortly after.

Damon Arnette is filling in for Mullen and likely for the rest of the game, as Las Vegas tries to dig out of a 7-0 hole.
Running back Peyton Barber also suffered a foot injury early in the game, and he is questionable to return. With Josh Jacobs still a little banged up, that leaves Kenyan Drake as the team’s only healthy back for the rest of the contest.
Also, no injury news has been reported about guard Jermaine Eluemunor but he missed a drive while Jordan Simmons filled in and gave up a sack to Chargers’ defensive tackle Jerry Tillery.
Silver and Black Pride will continue to monitor all of these situations and provide updates along the way.
