Longtime Raiders trainer George Anderson died Thursday morning, the team announced. He was 82.

No cause of death was given.

Anderson was the Raiders’ first head trainer, serving in that capacity from 1960 through 1994.

He was credited with developing a brace for then-Raiders QB Ken Stabler after he injured the medial collateral ligament in his knee. The brace came to be known as the Anderson Knee Stabilizer.

Anderson was inducted into the National Athletic Trainers’ Association Hall of Fame in 1986.

New Raiders GM Reggie McKenzie, who formerly played in Oakland, said he always knew that he was in excellent hands with Anderson as his trainer.
