The Oakland Raiders and their fans were full of optimism heading into the 2015 NFL season.

With talented young stars like Derek Carr, Latavius Muray, Amari Cooper and Khalil Mack all having the potential to become top players at their respective positions, the Raiders would have been hoping to ride their wave of optimism to a win against the Bengals on opening weekend.

That didn't happen, however, with the Raiders losing two key players in Carr and Charles Woodson, with the latter's injury being revealed.

Woodson Out

According to a report from Josina Anderson of ESPN, Woodson suffered a dislocated shoulder in the loss to Cincinnati and will be out for a period of time.

Woodson might be 38-years-old and entering the twilight of his sure-fire Hall of Fame worthy career, but this won't slow him down too much. 

The eight-time Pro Bowler has been an absolute ironman for the Raiders. The veteran has not missed a game since 2012 and according to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, Woodson is already campaigning to be allowed to play this weekend against the Ravens.

The Raiders also lost fellow safety Nate Allen to what could be a very serious knee injury, so the sooner they can get Woodson back the better.
