Raiders Safety Keith McGill to Need Surgery After Fracturing Foot on Saturday

Raiders safety Keith McGill suffered a Jones fracture on Saturday and will require foot surgey, Michael Gehlken of Las Vegas Review-Journal reports.

The exact timetable of his recovery will gain clarity after further evaluation, but it is possible he won’t be ready for Week 1. McGill is a core special teams contributor who was competing in camp for a rotational role in the secondary.

A Jones fracture relates to the foot’s fifth metatarsal.

McGill was on crutches after practice, his right foot in a protective boot.

He played 281 special-teams snaps in 2016, second-most among all returning players. The Raiders already were facing significant turnover in that department. Of the seven players who appeared in at least 240 special-teams snaps last year, only fullback Jamize Olawale and McGill are still on the 90-man roster.
