Raiders LT Donald Penn Ruled Out For Playoff Game Vs. Texans

The Raiders just received some bad news. Donald Penn is ruled out this weekend. (Isaiah J. Downing-USA TODAY)

Raiders left tackle Donald Penn has never missed a game during his 10-year career. Penn will now be forced to miss his first game ever due to a knee injury that he suffered during a week 17 game against the Denver Broncos. Penn expressed his frustration recently on twitter.

Penn was having one of the best seasons for any offensive lineman in 2016. Penn, 33, allowed just one sack on 622 pass blocks. He was rated as the 11th best overall tackle according to Pro Football Focus. That is incredible. Connor Cook’s day just go a whole lot tougher. Expect to see a lot more of Jadeveon Clowney creating havoc now that Penn is out.

Oakland now plans to go with Menelik Watson at right tackle. Watson is the normal right tackle. Austin Howard now slides into the lineup as the right tackle. The loss of Penn could be the turning point for the Texans to pull off a win.
