Oakland Raiders quarterback Marques Tuiasosopo is doubtful for Sunday’s game against the Jets with a torn knee ligament.
Tuiasosopo had an M.R.I. exam on his injured left knee Monday. Results were not immediately available, but Coach Bill Callahan said Tuiasosopo has a partly torn medial collateral ligament.
”It does not look good this week,” Callahan said of Tuiasosopo.
Tuiasosopo, a third-year pro, made his first N.F.L. start in place of the injured Gannon in Sunday’s 23-13 loss at Detroit. On Oakland’s third possession, he bobbled a snap, then ran up the middle and fumbled on a hard hit by Boss Bailey. Tuiasosopo stayed in the game for two more possessions.
