The Raiders have an injury concern with one of their best offensive players.

Josh Jacobs is questionable to return with a hand injury.

On the Prime Video broadcast, Jacobs was shown on the sideline getting his right pinkie taped. Then Jacobs’ glove was put back on and his ring finger and pinkie were taped together.

Jacobs suffered the injury on a run play, going 15 yards on second-and-20 with 11:36 left in the third quarter. It looked like Jacobs had fumbled, but he was ruled down by contact.

The Raiders’ training staff worked on Jacobs for several minutes on the sideline before Jacobs went into the locker room for further examination.

He then arrived back on the sideline, which is a good sign for his potential availability for Las Vegas’ next possession.

Jacobs has carried the load for Las Vegas’ offense on Thursday. He has 19 carries for 73 yards with a 1-yard touchdown. He’s also caught an 8-yard pass.

Zamir White has been Las Vegas’ only other running back to take a carry on Thursday and he has 9 yards on three attempts.

UPDATED 10:25 p.m. ET: Jacobs returned to the game on the Raiders’ next possession. But his right hand is clearly in some pain, as he shook it after making a 7-yard reception.

  1. This is a very boring game.The play on the field…the announcers….and the commercials.
    I think it’s time for the NFL to figure out a new strategy.

  2. Has there ever been a collapse of an NFL team like the Rams have had from 1st in the NFL last season to probably the overall #2 pick in the draft in 2023, my goodness they SUCK!

  3. Imagine if the Rams had Baker from the start and Kupp. They’d probably have 2 more wins on the season. Man this team has fallen.

  4. Is Derek Carr going to cry after the game and blame other people. He’s the problem. He’s not any good.

  5. the strategy is to develop youth players who have fundamental skills. Thats why the quality on the field is so poor.

    Raiders need a good QB. Derek Carr stinks.
    ===============

    The Raiders need a hell of a lot more than a QB! They had no #1 or #2 pick in the 2022 draft and picked a RB in the 4th round that they didn’t need, from what I’m seeing they need a GM more than they need anything else and that move needs to be made long before the next draft.
