A 72 yard TD for the rookie catapults the Raiders to a lead over the Chiefs
After missing the last two games with a hamstring injury, Henry Ruggs III is making his presence known against the Kansas City Chiefs at Arrowhead Stadium.
He had a catch that nearly went for 50 yards in the first quarter, and he just exploded for this 72-yard touchdown to give the Raiders the lead late in the second.
It is the first NFL career touchdown for the first-round draft pick. The TD also gave the Raiders a 24-21 lead over the Chiefs late in the second quarter.
