Shark Bites

The Raiders have downgraded RB Josh Jacobs to questionable for Monday night's game against the Ravens because of an illness. It's not clear what the illness is. If it were COVID-related, though, Jacobs would have already been ruled out. We'll check on his status Monday evening. Kenyan Drake would start in his place, with Peyton Barber looking like the #2 back. On the Ravens side, Ty'Son Williams, Latavius Murray and Le'Veon Bell stand as potential replacements if Jacobs is out and you're suddenly hard up.

Recent Shark Bites

Raiders RB Josh Jacobs sat out OTA practices the past 2 weeks with an undisclosed injury, according to Marcus Mosher of Raiders Wire. "Because it’s still voluntary OTAs, it’s probably not worth getting too concerned about," Mosher writes. "But if Jacobs doesn’t practice in some capacity during next week’s mandatory minicamp, then it might be time to worry." We'll keep an eye on the situation.

The Raiders declined the 5th-year option on RB Josh Jacobs. Such a move would have cost the team $8 million in 2023. Jacobs, 24, heads into his 4th season fresh off an RB11 finish.

When asked about RB Josh Jacobs on Tuesday, new Raiders HC Josh McDaniels praised the 24-year-old and called him a back who "can play on all 3 downs." That's obviously worth noting because it indicates that McDaniels likes Jacobs' passing-game ability. Jacobs has seen his targets and receptions increase each of the past 2 seasons. It remains to be seen, of course, what else the Raiders do with their backfield ahead of the 2022 campaign. But it can't hurt for the new coach to like the incumbent lead RB. McDaniels did also say he has already spoken with Jacobs about ball-security issues. Let's hope the 4th-year back works to decrease his fumbles as he begins life under a Bill Belichick disciple. Under McDaniels, fumbles could impact Jacobs' playing time.

Raiders RB Josh Jacobs (ribs) is active for tonight’s game vs. the Chargers. He got in 3 limited practices this week and should be ready for his usual workload in this must-win game.
