The team announced at halftime that Ruggs was questionable to return against the Panthers.

Ruggs made quite an impact before getting injured with the Raiders wanting to make full use of his speed. He caught a 45-yard pass to set up the Raiders’ first touchdown. Overall, he had three catches for 55 yards and two rushes for 11 yards.
