Raiders backup MLB Travis Goethel sustained a knee injury in Sunday's loss to the Ravens.

According to coach Dennis Allen, Goethel's injury "looks to be pretty significant." He has two tackles in eight games this season as the backup to Rolando McClain.

Travis Goethel is standing in as the Raiders' middle linebacker while Rolando McClain attends to legal woes.

Goethel, a favorite of Oakland's old coaching staff but also an injury waiting to happen, lined up on the inside at Thursday's OTA practice. McClain is in real danger of missing significant regular season action, so Goethel is a name for IDP leaguers to keep in mind. He could end up making multiple starts.

Raiders LB Travis Goethel will miss the 2011 season after tearing a knee ligament.

Goethel will need surgery, ostensibly to repair an ACL tear. The 2010 sixth-round pick had been running as the second-team middle linebacker after offseason indications that he could compete for the starting weak-side job. Goethel should be back to compete for a reserve spot next season. Meanwhile, the Raiders could revisit Lofa Tatupu or even Kirk Morrison.

Travis Goethel is expected to be in the mix for the Raiders' weak-side linebacker job this offseason.

Goethel actually won the job out of camp last year, but early-season back surgery sidelined him. Not much of a pass rusher, the 2010 sixth-round pick will have a hard time beating out Quentin Groves without a full offseason to impress coaches.

Coach Tom Cable revealed that rookie LB Travis Goethel underwent back surgery "not-so-recently."

The Raiders must have been sitting on this news for awhile because Cable hopes to have Goethel back next week. He'll vie for time as a reserve and special teamer when he returns.

Raiders signed sixth-round LB Travis Goethel to a multi-year contract.

Goethel, a three starter at Arizona State, saw time in the middle and on the strong side during spring practices. He'll vie for the backup middle linebacker job while pinching in on special teams.
