Raiders may lose Woodley to biceps injury

ALAMEDA, Calif. (AP) - Oakland Raiders defensive end LaMarr Woodley has a serious biceps injury and could miss the remainder of the season.

Woodley has not practiced since getting injured in Sunday's 24-13 loss to the Arizona Cardinals. Interim coach Tony Sparano wouldn't discuss the specific nature of Woodley's situation but acknowledged it is a long-term injury.

The 29-year-old was one of the Raiders' prized acquisitions this past offseason. Woodley and fellow defensive end Justin Tuck were signed to lucrative deals as part of general manager Reggie McKenzie's plan to bring in veterans with championship experience.

It hasn't worked out so well for winless Oakland.

Woodley has five tackles in six games and is without a sack. Tuck has 12 tackles and one sack but has been slowed by a knee injury.
