Las Vegas Raiders quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo was rushed to a local hospital following a back injury sustained in their 21-17 victory against the New England Patriots on Sunday.

Initially labeled as doubtful to return at the start of the second half, Garoppolo was swiftly ruled out of the game, leaving Brian Hoyer to take the reins at center for the Raiders. Raiders head coach Josh McDaniels confirmed Garoppolo's hospitalization, stating, "I know he (Garoppolo) left, and everybody knows that he left.

They are just doing tests, you know, and making sure they take care of all that stuff. I do not have an update on Jimmy." During the first half, after a field goal drive, Garoppolo displayed visible frustration on the sideline before engaging with the team's trainers while seated on the bench.

He eventually walked under his own power to the locker room, with a few seconds left on the game clock in the first half. At that point, the Raiders were leading 13-3. Garoppolo's departure came after a solid performance, completing 14-of-22 passes for 162 yards, including a touchdown pass to Jakobi Meyers and an interception.

Facing the Patriots, who selected him in the second round of the 2014 NFL Draft, Garoppolo led the Raiders on three scoring drives in under two quarters, with Hoyer taking over in the second half, completing 6-of-10 passes for 102 yards. This season, Garoppolo was signed by the Raiders, reuniting with his former Patriots offensive coordinator, Josh McDaniels, who now serves as the head coach of the Las Vegas team.

In four-plus games, Garoppolo completed 100 of 147 passes for 1,079 yards, seven touchdowns, and eight interceptions. Unfortunately, he has already missed one game due to a concussion, and now the Raiders are left anxiously awaiting news on the extent of his back injury and the potential impact on his playing time.
