Former LSU LB Arden Key's season over due to injury
Arden Key’s second NFL season is officially over.
On Thursday, the Oakland Raiders announced that they placed Key, a former LSU defensive end, on injured reserve. Key suffered a broken foot in the Raiders’ win over the Lions last weekend.
Key had four tackles and two sacks in seven games this season, which included a sack in Sunday’s game against Detroit. He was more productive during his rookie year in 2018, when he played in all 16 games, including 10 starts, and totaled 30 tackles and a sack.
After playing at LSU from 2015-17, Key was selected by Oakland in the third round of the 2018 draft.
Key is only 23, so he’ll have plenty of time to bounce back from this injury and potentially make an impact for the Raiders in future seasons.
With Key out, Oakland added linebacker Quentin Poling to its active roster from the practice squad.
