Raiders lose CB D.J. Hayden with season ending hamstring injury

The Oakland Raiders season has been going better than expected, but the team took a big hit when they lost starting cornerback D.J. Hayden to a season ending hamstring injury this week.

“That was a big blow,” coach Jack Del Rio said, via ESPN.

“It’s unfortunate. He was playing well for us.”

ESPN writes:

‘In 11 games this season, Hayden had 37 tackles with one forced fumble, six passes defensed and no interceptions. He has three career interceptions for no return yards with 26 passes defensed.’
