Raiders RB Josh Jacobs said Saturday that he’d like to re-sign with the team. Per Jacobs, contract talks should begin next week. “This is where I want to be,” the 25-year-old said. “I feel like I’ve left my mark on this organization. With the guys in the locker room — obviously, it’s going to be shaken up next year, but I feel like this is home. For me, this is where I want to be, but I’m not going to discredit myself trying to be here, either. So, it’s just got to make sense.” Jacobs smashed prior career highs with 393 touches and 2,053 total yards in 2022.

Raiders RB Josh Jacobs (hip, oblique) is active for today’s game against Kansas City. Jacobs is the NFL’s leading rusher, and he’ll look to pad his lead in a friendly matchup. Just be aware that the Raiders — now out of the postseason picture — could take a long look at rookie Zamir White.

The Athletic's Vic Tafur believes there's a "good chance [Raiders RB Zamir] White will get his first serious action of the season" vs. the Chiefs on Saturday. RB Josh Jacobs is listed as questionable with hip and oblique injuries and missed Wednesday and Thursday's practices due to a personal issue. The Raiders have nothing to play for in the finale, so it'd make sense for them to get a look at White -- especially with Jacobs set to hit free agency in March. White is only worth considering in Saturday DFS contests, but Jacobs' floor and ceiling is lower in Week 18 than it's been all season.

Raiders RB Josh Jacobs (hip, oblique) did not practice on Wednesday. The team's official website characterizes Jacobs' absence from practice as a personal day. Thursday's injury report will shed more light on whether or not the veteran will be able to suit up for Saturday's Week 18 game vs. the Chiefs. We'll keep an eye on this as more information becomes available.

Raiders RB Josh Jacobs (hip, oblique) was limited in Tuesday's practice. The hip and oblique are new issues for Jacobs, who briefly left last week's loss to the 49ers. But the fact that he was out there at all on Tuesday puts him on track to play in Saturday's finale vs. the Chiefs.

Raiders RB Josh Jacobs managed just 44 yards on 15 carries in Saturday night's loss to the Steelers. The yardage beat Jacobs' season low by just 1, and his 2.9 yards per carry was his worst mark of the year. Jacobs added just 1 reception for 6 yards, his fewest catches and targets (1) since Week 2. Week 17 holds an even worse matchup in a 49ers defense that sits 2nd-toughest in adjusted fantasy points allowed to RBs.

Raiders RB Josh Jacobs (quad, hand) is active for today’s game vs. the Patriots. He was limited in practice all week and admitted on Friday that he’s not quite sure how that injured pinkie will hold up today. It adds some risk to Jacobs’ profile, but he still sits very high in the Week 15 RB Rankings.

Raiders RB Josh Jacobs (quad, hand) is expected to play through his questionable tag today against the Patriots. We haven't doubted the workhorse this week. Keep him locked into your fantasy football lineups.

Raiders RB Josh Jacobs (quad, hand) was limited in practice all week and is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game vs. the Patriots. Jacobs said on Friday that he’ll play. “I can hold the ball, so we'll see once I get hit on it a couple of times,” he said, adding that he’ll play with added protection on that injured pinkie. There’s some added risk here, but Jacobs remains a virtual must-start considering how productive he’s been all year.

Raiders RB Josh Jacobs (quad, hand) was limited in Wednesday's practice. He played through what looked like a painful hand injury in last Thursday night's loss to the Rams. He should be available for this weekend's game vs. the Patriots, but we'll get another update on Jacobs tomorrow.

X-rays on Raiders RB Josh Jacobs' pinkie came back clean during Thursday night's loss to the Rams, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. That was the assumption considering Jacobs was allowed to re-enter the game. He's still scheduled for additional testing on the finger, though, so he's not quite out of the woods yet. We'll update Jacobs' status when we know more. Rookie RB Zamir White would likely take over as Vegas' lead ball carrier if Jacobs misses time, with RB Ameer Abdullah playing in passing situations.

Raiders RB Josh Jacobs hurt his right hand in the 2nd half of Thursday night's game against the Rams. He's officially questionable to return.

Update: Jacobs did return in the 3rd quarter.

7:16pm EST 12/8/22

Raiders RB Josh Jacobs (calf, quad) is active for tonight's game vs. the Rams. He never seemed to be in danger of missing this one and should be ready for his usual workload.

NFL Network's Tom Pelissero confirms that Raiders RB Josh Jacobs (quad, calf) is expected to play vs. the Rams tonight. He was limited in practice this week and is listed as questionable. Jacobs, of course, has been playing through this calf issue the past 2 weeks -- and racked up 453 total yards and 3 TDs. He's a must-start tonight.

Raiders RB Josh Jacobs (quad, calf) was limited in practice all week and is listed as questionable for Thursday night's game vs. the Rams. The quad issue is new, but we've heard nothing to suggest that Jacobs is in any danger of missing this one. We'll get Vegas' inactives around 7 pm ET tomorrow.

For the 2nd straight week, Raiders RB Josh Jacobs cast aside a "questionable" tag and delivered a big game. Despite reporter warnings that the team would need to manage Jacobs' calf injury, he racked up 144 yards and a TD on 26 carries in Sunday's win over the Chargers. Jacobs is working on a streak of 3 straight 100+ yard games and hasn't logged fewer than 21 carries since Week 9. He added 2 catches for 6 yards Sunday. RBs Zamir White and Amber Abdullah combined for just 3 touches against the Chargers. Week 14 brings a matchup with a Rams defense that expects to miss Aaron Donald for the 2nd straight game. The short turnaround could challenge Jacobs' calf ... though it looks like a calf-questionable Jacobs might be the best version of him.

3:00pm EST 12/4/22

Raiders RB Josh Jacobs (calf) is active for today’s game vs. the Chargers. He played through this injury last week – and ripped off 303 total yards – so it’s not a major concern.

Raiders RB Josh Jacobs (calf) will play vs. the Chargers later today, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. So Jacobs evidently didn't need to pass a pregame test to get the green light. Considering he went for 303 total yards playing through this calf injury last week, we're not too worried about it today.
