Raji Out For Season After Tearing Bicep

Packers Nose Tackle B.J. Raji will miss the entire 2014 season after tearing his bicep in yesterday's win over the Raiders, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. 

The injury, the first serious one of Raji's career, is expected to take 4-6 months of recovery, according to The Press-Gazette's Ryan Wood.

Raji, 28, signed a one-year, $4 million deal with Green Bay earlier this summer, just months after declining a contract worth five times that.

No, that fact doesn't make this wound any better, but yes, it does make it more tolerable, as losing a guy worth little for a campaign is obviously not as bad as one worth much.

He's been a disappointment over the last three seasons, but he was disruptive and making plays in the backfield this preseason. They'll be fine without him, but he would have helped in 2014.
