Raiders QB Jimmy Garoppolo ruled out for Sunday

Updated September 30, 2023 - 4:36 pm

Raiders quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo has been ruled out of Sunday’s game against the Chargers.

The Raiders will also be without cornerback Nate Hobbs.

Garoppolo suffered a concussion last week against the Steelers and has been in concussion protocol throughout the week. As part of the protocol process, he was cleared to resume limited practice Thursday and Friday but was ultimately ruled out.

The Raiders will decide between veteran Brian Hoyer and rookie Aidan O’Connell to replace Garoppolo on Sunday in Los Angeles.

Hobbs was limited at practice Friday with an ankle injury.

The Raiders (1-2) have lost two straight games as they prepare to play the AFC West rival Chargers (1-2). Garoppolo has thrown five interceptions in the losses and a league-leading six overall in three games, and the offense is averaging the third-fewest points per game in the NFL at 15.0.
