Could Darren Waller Miss Additional Time After His Week 7 Practice Injury?

The Las Vegas Raiders have been one of the biggest surprises of the 21-22 NFL season, and star tight end Darren Waller is a big part of that. Unfortunately, the Raiders could have to do without him for the next few weeks after he suffered a Grade 2 ankle/heel injury during practice October 22nd, according to our algorithm. We’ve calculated his Injury Risk (IRC) to be High, at 25%, while his Health Performance Factor (HPF) is Below Average, at 49%. Despite Darren Waller being one of the toughest tight ends in the league, our data predicts his Optimal Recovery Time would fall around 3 weeks, setting him up for a safe return in Week 10 against the Kansas City Chiefs. He could play sooner but won’t be fully healthy.
