Josh Jacobs Injury Updates

Raiders RB Josh Jacobs posted videos of himself in a hospital gown and with a bandage on his lower leg on Wednesday night. “Surgery went great fastest surgery ever," the rookie wrote. We don't have any other details on the situation right now. But between the surgery and his lingering shoulder injury, Jacobs seems unlikely to play in Sunday's finale against the Broncos.

Raiders RB Josh Jacobs will miss Sunday's game against the Chargers because of his shoulder injury, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. That makes DeAndre Washington a solid RB2 for fantasy football lineups. Washington tallied 96 total yards in the Week 14 loss to Tennessee with Jacobs inactive. That included 6 catches on 7 targets, both well above Jacobs' receiving usage this season. The Chargers hit Week 16 ranked 23rd in run defense by Football Outsiders and 17th in pass coverage vs. RBs.

Raiders HC Jon Gruden admitted that RB Josh Jacobs' status for Week 16 and beyond is "in question." Jacobs battled through his shoulder injury in the loss to Jacksonville, carrying 24 times for 89 yards and catching 2 of 3 targets for 30 yards. But it sounds like the Raiders are considering shutting the rookie down now that they've been eliminated from playoff contention. We'll keep an eye on the situation this week, but RB DeAndre Washington should be owned in all leagues. He'd be in the RB2 mix for Week 16 if Jacobs sits.

Raiders RB Josh Jacobs (shoulder) is active for today’s game against the Jaguars. He was limited in practice all week, but both HC Jon Gruden and OC Greg Olson said the rookie looked good. There’s obviously elevated risk to a guy playing through a fractured shoulder. But Jacobs has reportedly been dealing with the injury since Week 7. And this matchup is pristine.

Raiders RB Josh Jacobs is questionable with the shoulder injury that kept him out last week, but NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that he's "good to go" for today's game against the Jaguars. The matchup gives Jacobs a high ceiling and should put him into nearly all fantasy football lineups where he's owned.

Raiders RB Josh Jacobs (shoulder) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game against the Titans. He’s been playing through this injury since Week 7 but only got in a limited practice on Friday. HC Jon Gruden said Jacobs “didn’t do much” in that practice and didn’t commit to the rookie playing vs. Tennessee. We’ll look for an update on the situation on Sunday morning. Jacobs’ absence would leave Oakland with RBs DeAndre Washington and Jalen Richard. Gruden also mentioned FB Alec Ingold as a candidate for carries. It’d be a situation to avoid in fantasy lineups.

Raiders RB Josh Jacobs missed his 2nd straight practice on Thursday. We learned earlier this week that he fractured his shoulder back in Week 7. Jacobs has been playing through that injury, but it's possible that he re-aggravated it last week. At this point, the rookie's Week 14 status is up in the air. Check back tomorrow for another update.

Raiders RB Josh Jacobs says he's been playing through a fractured right shoulder suffered in Week 7. "I just play on it," he wrote in a social media post. The rookie has been listed on the injury report every week since but hasn't missed a game. In fact, Jacobs has averaged an identical 18.2 carries per game both before and after the injury. We'll continue to keep an eye on the situation, but Jacobs should remain in fantasy lineups until further notice.

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 (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.

Raiders HC Jon Gruden said Monday that RB Josh Jacobs is dealing with a groin issue. The rookie's last carry against the Chiefs came early in the 4th quarter, although we didn't see or hear about an injury. We'll need to track his practice participation this week.
