Las Vegas Raiders star Darren Waller got banged up during his team's Week 12 game on Thanksgiving, and he ultimately left the contest with a knee injury. The ailment isn't on the serious side, but it has caused concern over his status for Sunday.

The latest on Waller isn't the greatest news.

Darren Waller Injury Update

Waller is officially week-to-week, per interim head coach Rich Bisaccia. It sounds like playing on Sunday would be an uphill battle for the tight end, though it's not out of the question yet.

Las Vegas will likely be cautious with their star before clearing him to play, though the injury comes with the Raiders in the thick of playoff hunt.

Any prolonged absence for Waller will be felt on this offense. He leads the team in targets (84) while ranking second in receptions (53) and yards (643).

Foster Moreau, who has 12 catches for 135 yards and 3 TDs on the year, would step in for Waller if the latter misses Vegas' Week 13 matchup against the Washington Football Team.
