The bad thing about 2017 is that things that are not things can become things in a short amount of time, thanks to the proliferation of social media and the quick way in which stories travel. For instance, Miko Grimes, the wife of Buccaneers cornerback Brent Grimes, can appear on a radio show and claim that the Oakland Raiders offensive line intentionally wanted to let Derek Carr suffer an injury and it will be something people have to address.
Appearing on something called Revolt TV, Grimes said that because Carr was not down with how the Raiders offensive line wanted to protest, the line allowed Carr to suffer a back injury.
“The reason Derek Carr got injured is because the Raiders offensive line allowed him to get injured. Because he was against them protesting,” Grimes explained. “And they had a fight in that Monday night game [in Washington]. They were fighting in the locker room and that’s the only all-black offensive line in the NFL is the Raiders.”
