1. Richie Incognito (Las Vegas Raiders)

Richie Incognito might be one of the most powerful offensive guards in the Las Vegas sports world, but he is also one of the most injury-prone players imaginable. For example, Incognito managed to slip during a drill at the 2005 NFL combine and had to be carted off the field with a knee injury as a result. This left him on injured reserve for his very first season in the league.

 While Incognito would go on to be injured a few more times, his worst stint came when he signed with the Las Vegas Raiders in 2019.  He was placed on injured reserve after an Achilles injury in September of 2021. Fast forward one year later and he again found himself on the injury reserve list due to a calf strain. Just imagine your whole career being defined by injuries or controversy and that s basically what Incognito’s career has been.

2. Joshua Jacobs (Las Vegas Raiders)

Joshua Jacobs might not be the best running back in the NFL, but he can be relied on to move the ball down the field. The problem is that Jacobs seems to constantly be plagued by injury issues that either leave him on the sideline or are limited in his abilities. That makes him of little help at times to The Las Vegas Raiders

 Believe it or not, Jacobs suffered three injuries in 2021, marking his most injury-plagued season to date. The numbers were so bad that draftshark.com lists him as having a 73% chance of being injured this season

3. Max Pacioretty (Las Vegas Golden Knights)

It’s no secret that Max Pacioretty is one of the main pillars of The Las Vegas Golden Knights’ offense and that’s why losing him for any length of time is a worst-case scenario. Unfortunately for Las Vegas, that is exactly what happened to the team twice during the 2021-2022 season.

 The problems started in the Fall when Pacioretty broke his foot in an October game. He would miss 17 games due to this incident and this was before Jack Eichel was even on the team. Once Pacioretty’s foot healed enough, he tried to continue his season but was sidelined again after a wrist injury. That would put him out for ten games and create a very frustrating situation/

4. Robin Lehner (Las Vegas Golden Knights)

While Robin Lehner used to be one-half of the most dominant goalie combinations in the entire NHL, he now finds himself as one of the most injury-prone players on the Las Vegas Golden Knights. Lehner had what was described as clean-up surgery on his shoulder in 2020 and has been injured several times since then. He even had to cut short his last season.

 Keep in mind that this might have cost Las Vegas a spot in the playoffs, and you can start to see why Lehner s injuries are a problem.
