So it looks like he's active as only an emergency option -- and maybe not even that. Remove Jacobs from fantasy lineups. Vegas will again go with RBs Devontae Booker and Jalen Richard.

Raiders RB Josh Jacobs (ankle) is expected to play against the Colts today, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Jacobs seemingly made a ton of progress this week after HC Jon Gruden said Monday that he didn't expect Jacobs to play. He only got in limited practices on Thursday and Friday, but Rapoport hears that Jacobs is "nearly at full strength." The ankle issue still adds some risk, and the matchup is on the tough side. But Jacobs is worth getting back into most fantasy lineups.

Raiders RB Josh Jacobs (ankle) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game vs. the Colts. He got in limited practices on Thursday and Friday.

Colts-Raiders doesn’t kick off until 4:05 pm ET on Sunday, but we’ll look for an update on Jacobs that morning.
