Raiders RB Josh Jacobs shook off an illness that rendered him questionable for Sunday's game and again dominated backfield work. He handled 13 of Las Vegas' 16 RB carries and beat Brandon Bolden 6-2 in targets. Bolden was the only other RB to see the field. He trailed Jacobs by 20 total snaps and 9 routes. Jacobs ran for a decent 66 yards on his 13 attempts and caught 5 balls for 31 yards. He narrowly missed reaching the end zone on a 2nd-quarter run that set up Davante Adams' short TD catch.
Raiders RB Josh Jacobs (calf) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game vs. the Chargers. He hurt his calf last Friday, smoked the Seahawks for 303 total yards on Sunday and then got in 3 limited practices this week. We’re fully expecting Jacobs to play on Sunday, but we’ll look for further updates on his status.
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.
