As we all know, football is the most violent sport you can play in America. It comes with the risk of getting injured almost daily. Anything you do in football can potentially end your season or even career. This past week, the Las Vegas Raiders have had two players have season-ending injuries
Outside linebacker Kyler Fackrell suffered a season-ending injury and has been placed on the injured reserve list after having an undisclosed injury. The free-agent addition will not make an appearance for the silver and black this season.
The former Los Angeles Rams and Denver Broncos linebacker Micah Kiser was also placed on the injured reserve list after having a leg injury during practice.
These injuries may not seem like a big deal, but they are in the same position. That means the Raiders lost two depth pieces at the linebacker position.
Luckily for them, they were able to sign another depth piece at the position in Curtis Bolton.

Bolton played at Oklahoma University in college and went undrafted. Last year with the Detroit Lions, he appeared in five games, where he finished with three total tackles in 58 total special teams snaps. However, he did not appear in any defensive snaps.
There is not a whole lot of info on Bolton. However, we will get to see more of him when he shows up at camp.
