Sunday update

Josh Jacobs is active for today’s game against the New England Patriots.

The Raiders also activated tight end Darren Waller and wide receiver Hunter Renfrow.

Original Story

Las Vegas Raiders running back Josh Jacobs is listed as questionable on the team’s injury report ahead of Sunday’s matchup with the New England Patriots.

However, coach Josh McDaniels didn’t sound too concerned when speaking to the media Friday.

“He’s had a good week. We’ve been smart about him in general and obviously he’s played a lot of snaps for us and done a lot of things in terms of being physical,” McDaniels said. “So, we’ll make a good choice on that as well and if there’s something that we need to limit, then we’ll try to. But right now, he looks like he’s going to be able to handle that.”

Josh Jacobs injured his hand in last Thursday’s loss to the Los Angeles Rams.

Coach McDaniels also provided updates on tight end Darren Waller and wide receiver Hunter Renfrow. Both were recently designated to return from injured reserve.

“I think one more day would be good for us. Yesterday was their first time in pads. Being able to come back off of that, obviously both of them had an injury. So, today will be an important day for us, just to see how their body responds to it and if they’re able to, I’d say, continue to make progress here as we head towards game day,” McDaniels said. “So, today will be a big day, and then we’ll have an opportunity to make a good decision. But both guys are trying everything they can do to make sure that they’re ready to go. I know they’re both chomping at the bit, and we’ll see how today goes and then make a good choice.”
