Jon Gruden hopeful Josh Jacobs will be “back on the grass” this week

The Raiders are 3-0 and they’ve made it to that point largely without star running back Josh Jacobs.

The 2019 first-round pick hasn’t practiced since Week One, missing the last two games with an ankle injury. Jacobs was apparently closer to playing in Week Three than he was in Week Two, as he was listed as doubtful instead of out for the matchup with Miami.

Las Vegas’ next matchup will be on Monday Night Football in Week Four against the Chargers, and they may have Jacobs available for it.

“I met with Josh this morning,” head coach Jon Gruden said in his Monday press conference. “We’re going to see how he feels on the practice field this week. I’m not making any predictions, but we’re hopeful that we can get him back on the grass at some point this week.”

Jacobs played 52 percent of Las Vegas’ snaps in the Week One victory over Baltimore, taking 10 carries for 34 yards with a pair of touchdowns.

  1. Without Carr we’d be 0-3, our rushing attack is absolutely dismal without Jacobs. Having him against SD who is looking for real would be huge.

  2. The Raiders are winning the games they’re supposed to win, and winning games they weren’t supposed to win. This is fun. Keep it rolling. Just Win baby!

  3. If Jacobs isn’t 100%, let him sit till he is. They got this far without him, why risk aggravating the injury and setting him back further.

  4. Plus they get Jalen Richard back this week. Even if Jacobs isn’t ready, he can help carry the load. Barber did great last game.
    Still need the full effect of Jake and Josh though…

  5. 3-14, maybe 6-11. Raiders aren’t scaring anyone, especially with Carr.

    Jacobs had one decent season and now he’s hurt all the time, lol.

  6. 3-0 starts are great, but the Raiders are not going to beat anyone except for the Bears for the rest of the season.

  7. Yeah, not buying the soft and easy 3-0 start. The Raiders start strong and fizzle out to miss the playoffs. They will feel the HUGE revenue hole from the tyrannical supporting stadium policies as well. Failure Franchise!
