Shark Bites

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 (calf) remained limited in Thursday's practice. We're expecting him to play through this injury vs. the Chargers on Sunday, like he did last weekend when he dismantled the Seahawks.

Raiders RB Josh Jacobs (calf) was limited in Wednesday's practice. NFL Network's Tom Pelissero set off alarms with a Tuesday tweet that suggested Jacobs might not play vs. the Chargers this weekend. But getting in a limited practice on Wednesday -- after dominating with this injury this past Sunday -- suggests that Jacobs will be available. We'll get another update on his status tomorrow.

Raiders RB Josh Jacobs is not expected to practice much, if at all, this week with his calf strain, according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero. "He’ll get around-the-clock treatment in hopes of playing Sunday against the Chargers," Pelissero adds. It's a surprising report after Jacobs blew up for 303 total yards and 2 TDs vs. the Seahawks last week -- after hurting that calf on Friday. We'll keep you updated on his status throughout the week. If Jacobs can't go on Sunday, Vegas would likely deploy a committee with RBs Zamir White, Ameer Abdullah and Brandon Bolden.

Raiders RB Josh Jacobs entered Sunday questionable with a calf issue that arose in Friday's practice. He finished the day with a 33-229-2 rushing line and 6-74 receiving in a 40-34 win over the Seahawks. Jacobs finished off an already strong outing with an 86-yard TD dash in OT. Jacobs set season highs in both rushing yards and receiving yards and topped 20 carries for the 3rd straight game. He's a weekly must start the rest of the way.

2:39pm EST 11/27/22

Raiders RB Josh Jacobs is active for today’s game vs. the Seahawks. He was added to the injury report and limited in Friday’s practice with a calf. He evidently looked and felt good enough in pregame warmups, though, and we haven’t heard anything about him being limited today.
