Las Vegas rookie linebacker Tanner Muse will have to shut it down for 2020.

NFL.com's Tom Pelissero reports that Muse had surgery on his toe and will miss the rest of the NFL season.

"Raiders LB Tanner Muse had toe surgery Monday and will miss the rest of his rookie season, source said," Pelissero posted on social media. "A third-round pick, Muse had been on IR while trying non-surgical options and learning a new position in meetings. Now, focus on 2021. Full recovery expected."

Muse was placed on the injured reserve before the season and didn't appear in a game this year. He will hopefully get 100 percent healthy and be ready to roll next year.

He was selected 100th overall in the third round by the Raiders in the 2020 NFL Draft.

As a senior in 2019, Muse was named a Thorpe Award semifinalist registering 55 tackles, two sacks, four interceptions, and five passes defended.

During his time at Clemson, he recorded 192 tackles (105 solo), four sacks, seven interceptions, including one returned for a touchdown, 15 passes defensed, one forced fumble and one fumble recovery.
