Las Vegas Raiders tight star ending Darren Waller is said to have avoided serious injury after exiting the game early Thursday over Thanksgiving with Dallas Cowboys. According to NFL Network’s Ian RapoportWaller’s MRI scan showed he had an IT strain on his knee.

Waller suffered an early back injury in the 36-33 overtime win over the Cowboys and was listed as likely to return. When he rejoined the game, he injured his knee in the second quarter and was inactive again. He was seen working out on an exercise bike on the sidelines of Las Vegas, but in the third quarter he was seen in street clothes. A stressful IT band is relatively good news compared to another type of knee injury that can leave Waller unconscious for a significant amount of time.

Waller entered Thursday as the top recipient of the Raid, but was overtaken by Hunter Renfrow after his performance of eight monster catches, 134 yards long. Interesting, Derek Carr was able to find success in the air even without his flexible tight end, as a veteran DeSean Jackson catch three passes in 102 yards – including a 56-yard touchdown to start things off in the first quarter – and Zay Jones Catch five 59-yard passes on seven goals. In total, Carr threw 373 yards and one touch on the ball Most watched NFL regular game on any network since 1990.

It remains to be seen whether Waller will miss time with this injury, but Rapoport calls the results of his MRI “very good news”.
