The Raiders have downgraded running back Josh Jacobs to questionable for Monday night’s game against the Ravens. Jacobs has an illness.

It is unknown whether it is COVID-19 or not, but the Raiders are 100 percent vaccinated. That means they do not have to worry about high-risk close contacts needing to quarantine for five days if it is.

Jacobs returned to practice Thursday and was listed as limited with a toe injury. He did not receive a designation Saturday.

Jacobs earned his first Pro Bowl in 2020, with 306 touches for 1,303 yards and 12 touchdowns.

The Raiders have Kenyan Drake and Peyton Barber behind Jacobs. Drake has 37 career starts, including 13 last season for the Cardinals.

  1. That’s smart if he has covid let him go out there and pass it to the other players so they can pass it on also. Vaccinated or not can still pass it

  2. So the highest vaccinated team with a vaccinated only stadium is having trouble with COVID, makes you wonder.

  3. Vegas in general is a Covid hotbed, though. If these idiots like Jacobs who should be suspended for reckless driving as it is, are still running around at night putting themselves in horrible positions away from the stadium, this is what will happen.

  4. 100% vaccinated means nothing as whether or not you receive the MNRA you can catch Covid get sick from Covid die from Covid and make others sick. This is not like the vaccine for measles or polio which is a sterilizing vaccine that prevents infection AND transmission

    No one said he has Covid and if he did, they would have to disclose it. Absolutely ignorant thing to say. Josh Jacobs is a model of good behavior and lives a good life free of vices, please stop projecting, you have no idea what you are talking about.
