The Oakland Raiders have seen the last of one disappointing free-agent signing this season.

NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported Wednesday that defensive end LaMarr Woodley suffered a torn biceps muscle in Sunday's loss to the Arizona Cardinals, according to a source. His season is believed to be over.

The Raiders gave Woodley a two-year, $12 million contract in March, teaming him with Justin Tuck on a new-look defensive line. Woodley had not made an impact prior to Sunday's injury, registering just five tackles and no sacks in six games.

Raiders coach Tony Sparano told reporters on Wednesday that Woodley had suffered a biceps injury and said that it "could be" serious. Per the Raiders' official depth chart, Woodley's primary backup is Benson Mayowa, a 2013 undrafted free agent.

It's fair to wonder if Woodley has already played his final snap as a Raider. Perhaps we should assume so.

Hate to see any injuries but glad we did not resign him.

He was already signed. We cut him and took the cap hit.

I guess the sack problem is the player and not DL...

LaMarr Woodley is injury prone? Who would have thought.

False. He was having the best year of his career the year he got his contract. He got injured and it derailed his potential DPOY season he was having WITHOUT James Harrison across from him.
