The Raiders are still waiting to see how veteran running back Marshawn Lynch recovers from his groin injury to decide if they bring him back in 2019, the San Francisco Chronicle’s Eric Branch writes.

Lynch, who will turn 33 before the 2019 season kicks off, is expected to have more of an interest in returning to his hometown team now that the Raiders will be playing their games in the Bay Area. Head coach Jon Gruden said the decision is one that will likely play itself out before the draft.

“I think the coming weeks will give us a better indication where he is physically,” he said. “That’s the No. 1 agenda. We have to find out officially how he has responded to the injury. We’ll know something here in a couple of weeks.”

Lakers reportedly 'concerned about' LeBron James' groin: How hard should they push him? All is not well in Lakers land at the All-Star break in the aftermath of failed Anthony Davis trade talks and a 28-29 start to the season for Los Angeles. According to The Athletic, the team is ‘a little concerned’ that James hasn’t fully recovered from the groin injury he suffered on Christmas that sidelined him for several weeks. The Lakers are privately a little concerned about LeBron. Is he fully healed from the groin strain that cost him a career-worst 18 games? Is he going to pick up his intensity and propel this team back into the playoffs, as he did last year in Cleveland? James, 34, is actually averaging a triple double for the Lakers since his return fr

Marshawn Lynch ’ s injury may mean we have seen the last of the Raiders running back in the NFL. As Lynch ’ s groin injury lingered, the Raiders placed the running back on injured reserve meaning the soonest he could return would be Christmas Eve against the Steelers per NBC Bay Area.

Oakland Raiders RB Marshawn Lynch will reportedly miss at least one month of the season with a groin injury , according to NFL Network' s Ian Rapoport. At a press conference on Tuesday, Raiders head coach Jon Gruden called Lynch ' s groin strain a "cause for concern."

Even though his 2018 season was cut short by the groin injury, Lynch still managed to average 4.2 yards per carry while gaining 376 yards. The five-time Pro Bowl selection ranks 29th all time in rushing yards and 16th in rushing touchdowns.

The Raiders are sure to be in the market for a running back as both Lynch and Doug Martin are free agents heading into 2019.
