Raiders' Jackson questionably ejected in third quarter vs. Bucs originally appeared on NBC Sports Bayarea

Already down one starting offensive lineman against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the Raiders lost another in the middle of Sunday's game.

Right guard Gabe Jackson was ejected with 4:18 remaining in the third quarter, and Las Vegas was penalized 15 yards on the ensuing kickoff.

Fox Sports' cameras showed a replay of Jackson lightly shoving Bucs defensive lineman William Gholston after quarterback Derek Carr threw a 1-yard touchdown pass to tight end Darren Waller.

Right tackle Trent Brown missed Sunday's game after being placed on the Reserve/COVID-19 list Wednesday. Sam Young, Brown's backup, sustained a knee injury in Sunday's game.

Both Jackson and Brown have been fixtures on the right side of the Raiders' offensive line. The Raiders signed Brown to a lucrative free-agent contract in 2019, and Jackson has played 100 percent of the team's offensive snaps in every game he has played in since Dec. 31, 2017.

The week before his 30-game streak began, Jackson played 99 percent of the Raiders' offensive snaps. Jackson last played fewer than 99 percent of the snaps in a game on Nov. 26, 2017, when he took just 7 percent because he was ejected for shoving a game official.
