Raiders lose LB Goethel to knee injury

For the second straight year, the Oakland Raiders have lost linebacker Travis Goethel to an injury, this time ending his season before it even began.

Goethel, a sixth-round pick in 2010, played in eight games last season as he was limited a back injury. Now, comes news from Steve Corkran of InsideBayArea.com that Goethel injured his knee in Monday's practice and will likely miss the entire 2011 season.
