The Las Vegas police would soon release a statement on the matter:
While Ruggs may have survived, his career is most certainly to be turned upside down.
Ruggs’ attorney released the following statement:
“On behalf of our client Henry Ruggs III we are conducting our own investigation as of this writing and ask everyone to reserve judgment until all the facts are gathered.”
The Raiders used the No. 12 overall pick in the first round of the 2020 NFL Draft to select him.
The 22-year-old has appeared in seven games for the Raiders this season and has caught 24 of 36 targets for 469 yards receiving and two touchdowns. He’s also rushed three times for 16 yards.
