The Raiders have placed running back Marshawn Lynch on injured reserve, the team announced Monday.
Lynch suffered a groin injury in the Raiders’ 27-3 Week 6 loss to the Seahawks in London. He rushed for 45 yards on 13 carries in that game.

The earliest Lynch can return is Week 16 against the Broncos, according to The Athletic.
The 32-year-old has averaged 4.2 yards per carry and tallied three touchdowns in six games this season.
Doug Martin and Jalen Richard are expected to see an increase in their workload with Lynch sidelined.
The Raiders also sent wide receiver Amari Cooper to the Cowboys in exchange for a first-round pick Monday.
