Las Vegas Raiders running back Josh Jacobs has had a stellar season despite dealing with multiple nagging injuries. Right now he is working through a hip/oblique injury, but was able to get in a limited designation on the practice report for Tuesday. He should be ready to go against the Chiefs again this week.

Jacobs has already amassed 2,003 total yards on a league high 374 touches. He leads the league with 1,608 rushing yards and is currently 160 yards ahead of Nick Chubb. He appears to have the rushing title and total yards title wrapped up for this season.

Josh Jacobs injury updates

Thursday, Jan 5 update — Jacobs is officially questionable for Saturday’s game against the Chiefs.

Thursday, Jan 5 update — Jacobs was once again not practicing on Thursday, per Vincent Bonsignore. He is listed as questionable on the final injury report. He will be a game-day decision.

Wednesday, Jan 4 update — Jacobs didn’t practice Wednesday due to a personal matter, so there’s no reason for concern just yet seeing him as DNP. He was limited Tuesday and likely would have to log a full session Thursday to avoid going into Saturday’s game with an injury designation. Jacobs has been banged up this season but has played through the pain most weeks.

Tuesday, Jan 3 update — Josh Jacobs was listed as limited on the injury report with a hip/oblique injury.

Fantasy football advice

As long as Jacobs plays, you’re starting him and you’ll be happy about it. Zamir White would likely see an uptick in usage if Jacobs can’t play, and maybe even a little bit if he can. Ameer Abdullah and Brandon Bolden are also options, but White would have the most upside.
