Maxx Crosby was in a difficult situation ahead of the game against the Kansas City Chiefs. He suffered a major knee injury and did not practice on Wednesday. In addition to this, the DE also had multiple infections leading him to get admitted to hospital earlier this week.
Despite all odds, the DE had his full game against the Chiefs. While it was his quietest game of the season as he sacked Patrick Mahomes in the third quarter. It was a key sack against the Chiefs’ signal caller.
In the recent episode of his podcasting show ‘The Rush’, the DE shared his experience with his knee injury. The DE said,
Yeah this week was f*ck. F*cking my knee. Had some fluid buildup. The sh*t was blown up like a balloon. The next morning I woke up. I almost passed out. I felt like I was dying. I was literally forbidden. Like I could not move.
Entailing on how his misery increased further, he continued:
Then I got a call that night and they were like 'We need to go to the hospital in the next morning. We found bacteria in your f*cking knee, in my fluid'. So it can be f*cking dangerous. So I had to go through all these requirements. I had to do all this and this. I had to show them I could do anything.
People who are aware of Crosby’s situation know that he is a fighter. His issues with addiction are well known and his struggle to overcome things is also no secret. He went through multiple sessions of rehab and recently admitted he gave all his flowers to sobriety to take him back to normalcy. The fans respect him for his immense mental; strength and this will increase after the incident.
The Raiders are going through a massive transition this season
The Las Vegas Raiders are presently going through a major transition after they fired their head coach Josh McDaniels over poor performance issues. It had a cost, however, the owner Mark Davis was not concerned much as he preferred the team’s interest in the first place. He put Antonio Pierce in the place of McDaniels. The team had a sigh of relief and things were looking better.
However, the transition suffered a setback in the last two games. The game against the Chiefs was a disappointment as they had a crucial 14-0 lead and blew that up. They lost momentum and ended up losing the game 17-31.
For the Raiders, it seems not much hope is left for their playoff. They can focus on the next season under the leadership of Pierce. The rest of the games will be crucial to have more oxygen.
