Not getting tag

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-02-26

Jacobs (quadriceps) isn't likely to receive a franchise tag from the Raiders and figures to become a free agent in March, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

It would cost the Raiders about $14.15 million to tag Jacobs for a second straight offseason, and this time he's coming off a disappointing, injury-shorted year rather than a career-best breakout campaign. After taking 340 carries for a league-high 1,653 yards (4.9 YPC) in 2022, the 223-pound RB dropped to 233 carries for 805 yards (3.5 YPC) in 2023 before missing the final four games with a quad injury. Jacobs still figures to command starter money when he hits free agency a month after his 26th birthday, but it won't compare to what he would've gotten on the open market last offseason if the Raiders hadn't tagged him. It doesn't help that the upcoming free-agent class is a strong one for RBs, with other potential options including Saquon Barkley, Tony Pollard, Derrick Henry, Austin Ekeler, D'Andre Swift and Devin Singletary.

Won't play Sunday

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-01-05

Jacobs (quad) has been ruled out for Sunday's season finale against the Broncos.

With Jacobs, who last saw game action in Week 14, ruled out for the contest, Zamir White is once again slated to lead the Raiders' backfield Sunday. Jacobs thus finishes the 2023 campaign with 233 carries for 805 yards and six TDs to go along with 37 catches (on 54 targets) for 296 yards in 13 games. The 2019 first-rounder played this past season on a one-year deal with Las Vegas worth $11.8 million that he signed this past August.

Logs another 'DNP'

Jacobs (quad) remained sidelined at practice Thursday.

The Raiders' top back was listed as a non-participant on Wednesday's practice estimate, with interim head coach Antonio Pierce indicating that he views Jacobs as a game-time decision for Sunday's season finale against Denver. If Jacobs -- who has missed three straight contests -- remains unavailable this weekend, Zamir White would once again lead the team's backfield in Week 18.

Jacobs (quadriceps) was listed as a non-participant on Wednesday's practice estimate.

Vic Tafur of The Athletic noted earlier Wednesday that interim coach Antonio Pierce views Jacobs as a game-time decision for Sunday's season finale against the Broncos. If, however, the running back ends up missing his fourth straight contest this weeknd, Zamir White would once again be slated to lead the Raiders' backfield in Week 18.

Jacobs (quadriceps) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Colts.

Jacobs, who was listed as a 'DNP' Wednesday through Friday, approached the contest listed as doubtful and now that it's been confirmed that he'll miss his third straight contest, Zamir White is once again slated to lead the Raiders backfield in Week 17. Jacobs will now target a potential return to action in the team's regular-season finale next weekend against the Broncos.

Doubtful for Sunday

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-12-29

Jacobs (quadriceps) is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against the Colts, Rachel Gossen of the Raiders' official site reports.

Jacobs was deemed a 'DNP' Wednesday through Friday and though his 'doubtful' designation suggests that he'll be sidelined this weekend, coach Antonio Pierce still considers the running back a game-time decision. "No need to rush it," Pierce said of Jacobs' status. "If he can go at one o'clock on Sunday, I'm happy with that." If, however, Jacobs is inactive versus Indianapolis, Zamir White would once again lead the Raiders' backfield in Week 17.

Likely game-time decision

Coach Antonio Pierce noted Friday that Jacobs (quadriceps) is viewed as a game-time decision for Sunday's game against the Colts, Vic Tafur of The Athletic reports.

Jacobs, who was listed as a 'DNP' in both Wednesday's walk-through and Thursday's practice, has one more chance to get some on-field work in ahead of Week 17 action, but either way it seems as though he's trending toward heading into the weekend with an official 'questionable' designation. If Jacobs is limited or out versus Indianapolis, Zamir White would once again be in line to see added backfield touches for the Raiders.

Idle for another practice

Jacobs (quadricep) was listed as a non-participant for Thursday's walkthrough.

Though Tashan Reed of The Athletic relays that there's sentiment within the organization that Jacobs will be able to put an end to his two-game absence this weekend in Indianapolis, the running back hasn't taken any notable steps toward making that a reality. After managing one limited practice session in Week 16, he's now been listed as a non-participant for consecutive walkthroughs to begin Week 17 prep. Jacobs will still have another chance Friday to log some on-field work prior to Sunday's game against the Colts, but if he's unable to make enough progress in his recovery and misses a third straight game this weekend, Zamir White would once again have a clear path to a lead role out of the backfield.

Jacobs (quad) was listed as a non-participant on Wednesday's practice estimate.

After being deemed a 'DNP' in Wednesday's walk-through, Jacobs now has two more chances to practice ahead of Sunday's game against the Colts. If, however, the running back remains sidelined for a third straight game this weekend, Zamir White would once again be in line to lead the Raiders' backfield in Week 17.
