Raiders S Erik Harris is questionable for Sunday's game against the Lions because of an illness. Harris missed practice Thursday but returned to a limited Friday workout. We haven't seen any indication he'll sit out but will check his status Sunday afternoon.

Raiders RB Josh Jacobs (shoulder) is active for today’s game against the Texans. He suffered this shoulder injury early in last week’s game in Green Bay and returned to tally 124 yards on 21 carries. So we’re expecting the rookie to see his normal workload today.

Raiders RB Josh Jacobs (shoulder) is expected to play against the Texans today, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. The rookie only got in a limited practice on Friday but played -- and played well -- through this shoulder injury last week. He remains a solid RB2 in Week 8 fantasy lineups.

Raiders RB Josh Jacobs (shoulder) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game against the Texans after only getting in a limited practice on Friday. The rookie played through this injury last week, though, and HC Jon Gruden said that he expects Jacobs to play. Raiders-Texans is a 4:25 pm ET kickoff, so we’ll look for an update on Jacobs’ status Sunday morning. If he’s unable to play, we’d likely get a committee backfield with DeAndre Washington and Jalen Richard.

Raiders RB Josh Jacobs (shoulder) missed his 2nd straight practice on Thursday. He played through this shoulder injury last weekend but appears to be at least in some danger of missing Sunday's game against the Texans. His absence would leave Oakland's backfield to DeAndre Washington and Jalen Richard. Check back tomorrow for another update on Jacobs' status.

Raiders RB Josh Jacobs (shoulder) didn't practice on Wednesday. He exited last weekend's game with this injury but was able to return, ultimately racking up 124 yards on 21 carries. HC Jon Gruden labeled his rookie "questionable" for Sunday's game against the Texans, but we're tentatively expecting Jacobs to play. We'll, of course, continue to monitor his status.

Raiders RB Josh Jacobs injured his right shoulder at the end of a long run on the 1st drive of Sunday's game against the Packers. He headed back to the locker room with trainers. We'll update Jacobs' status when we learn more.

Update: Jacobs returned on Oakland's next series.

Raiders TE Darren Waller (foot) isn’t listed on the final Week 7 injury report. He put in a full practice on Friday after being limited on Thursday. Waller remains a locked-in TE1, especially with WR Tyrell Williams out.

Raiders TE Darren Waller (foot) was limited in Thursday's practice. That's a downgrade from his full workout on Wednesday. We haven't heard any concern over his availability for this weekend's game against the Packers, but check back tomorrow for another update.

The Raiders and TE Darren Waller have agreed to a 3-year extension worth about $9 million per season, according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero. Instead of hitting restricted free agency this offseason, Waller is now signed with Oakland through 2023. It's a big commitment to a guy who was signed off the Ravens' practice squad last November. Waller has quickly emerged as a focal point of the Raiders' passing game, leading the team with 42 targets, 37 catches and 359 yards through 5 games.

Titans QB Marcus Mariota was benched in the 3rd quarter of Sunday's game in Denver after tossing his 2nd INT of the afternoon. He completed just 7 of 18 passes for 63 scoreless yards. QB Ryan Tannehill has replaced Mariota.

The Cardinals are releasing S D.J. Swearinger, according to multiple reports. That's not surprising, as Swearinger has been the main culprit in Arizona's awful coverage against TEs. It's also the 2nd team to dump him in less than a year. Swearinger joined the Cardinals after Washington cut him from a starting position there. We'll see who Arizona plans to insert into the lineup.

The NFL has suspended Raiders LB Vontaze Burfict for the rest of the season for his headshot on Colts TE Jack Doyle Sunday. Burfict has a history of league suspensions for similar offenses, which explains the unprecedented length of this ban. Burfict has 3 days to appeal it, so we'll see whether it changes. Either way, Tahir Whitehead has been the more reliable Oakland LB for playing time and tackles and should be owned in most IDP leagues of at least moderate depth.

Raiders LB Vontaze Burfict got booted in the 1st half of Sunday's game against the Colts for an illegal hit. Given his past with the league on such hits, we should probably expect some sort of suspension to follow here.

Raiders LB Vontaze Burfict (shoulder) and DB Lamarcus Joyner (groin) are active for today's game against the Vikings. Each entered the day questionable but is fine to use as you might have planned in your IDP lineup.

Raiders LB Vontaze Burfict is questionable for Sunday's game against the Vikings with a shoulder injury. Burfict put in limited workouts all week. We'll check his status Sunday morning.

Raiders RB Josh Jacobs (hip) isn't listed on the final Week 3 injury report. He put in a full workout on Friday after being limited on Wednesday and Thursday. On top of the hip issue, Jacobs said he lost 10 pounds this week with an illness. Throw in a brutal matchup against the Vikings, and the rookie should only be considered a RB3 for Week 3.

Raiders RB Josh Jacobs revealed Thursday that he's been sick and has lost 10 pounds. That's in addition to the groin injury that had him limited on Wednesday. While we're still expecting Jacobs to play this weekend, we'll need to keep a close eye on him. And he's not a great fantasy option with the Raiders big 9.5-point underdogs against a stout Vikings run defense.

Raiders RB Josh Jacobs (groin) was limited in Wednesday's practice. We've heard nothing to suggest his injury is serious, and the fact that he got on the field today is good news. Jacobs should be available for this weekend's game against the Vikings, but we'll keep an eye on him.
