The rookie got off to a strong start before injuring his ankle. He appears to be back.

UPDATE: The Raiders announced Henry Ruggs was questionable to return, but he is now back in the huddle during the TV timeout in the third quarter.

The Las Vegas Raiders are getting an impressive performance from wide receiver Henry Ruggs III, but the rookie is currently sidelined with a lower leg injury. It looked like he rolled his left ankle and is currently being looked at on the sideline. He has three receptions for 53 yards, including a long of 45 yards on one.

In video from the game, we see him go down awkwardly and immediately limp the sideline. He has since gone to the locker room to likely get an x-ray.
