The Washington Post reports Oakland Raiders QB Rich Gannon suffered a third degree separation of his left shoulder, the result of a hit by Ravens DT Tony Siragusa in Sunday's game. He will need surgery to repair his shoulder and will have to miss the Pro Bowl in early February. The Raiders felt Siragusa's hit was inexcusable, not to mention illegal. "I thought it was a late hit," Gannon said. "I thought it was uncalled for. The ball came out [an incomplete pass to John Jett], and I was real shocked there wasn't a flag. I hope the NFL will review it. I just thought it was a bad, bad shot." Gannon added he was not sure his presence in the game would have made a difference in the final result.
