The Raiders will be shorthanded on offense against the Titans on Sunday.

Just how shorthanded they’ll be is a question that won’t be answered until closer to kickoff in Oakland. Right tackle Trent Brown has been ruled out for the game and they’re set to make a game-time decision on running back Josh Jacobs after listing him as questionable.

Jacobs has been on the injury report in recent weeks because of a shoulder injury and Jacobs said this week that he fractured it. He did not practice Wednesday or Thursday and head coach Jon Gruden said he didn’t do much work on Friday.

Jalen Richard and DeAndre Washington are the other backs for the Raiders.

Brown is out with a pectoral injury. He’s also dealt with a knee injury in recent weeks. Brandon Parker will start in his place.

  1. So the Raiders essentially traded the opportunity to draft Landry last year for Hall and Arden Key- not too good so far, and now Landry can run amok vs. Brandon Parker who they used three picks to trade up for and still looks like he needs a year in the weight room and the kitchen. Two thoughts, Thank goodness for Mayock. Who knew missing David Sharpe could be a huge factor in biggest game of season?

  2. Raiders lost two very winnable games, and simply aren’t playing well lately. The O Line is banged up and the best RB in silver and black in a generation has a fractured shoulder.
    It’s clear at this point, they should rest the banged up players as they are not going to get very far in the playoffs if they do manage to sneak in in a watered down AFC.
    Get the better draft picks to fill the holes on D and get a #1 WR, then they have a chance to make some noise in the desert. Doesn’t make sense to play injured players just to make a statement that can cost you next year…

  3. We’ll be 8-8 at best this year. Better than I thought at the start of the season. Need to rest the injured. Makes no sense to play them now with the playoffs practically out of sight. Let’s hope the Bears lose the remainder of their games so we can get higher in the draft for that Mack pick.

  4. Kizer move mean we’re assessing the qb situation behind Carr. Carr is pretty much done as a Raider. He’ll have a short leash on Sunday.

  5. The Raiders only have a couple starters left over from the previous regime. Not one starter on defense. Some rebuilds are minor, but the Raiders rebuild is a major one. They’re building a good foundation, but they started in a very deep hole. They have 2 first round picks and three 3rd rounders, and they’ve shown the ability to get really good players in the 4th and 5th rounds, so they should get at least 5 more studs in the next draft. And no, the draft is not a crap shoot. That’s a word that gets used by people who don’t know how to properly evaluate college prospects. The Gruden regime obviously does. The future looks bright, even if it’s still a year or 2 away.
