Playing through an injury since week 7. Damn

Its crazy.  You would think they might limit his rushes and try to get him involved more in passing game where he could take less of a beating.  Anybody with working eye's can see him and Waller are the only two offensive options on the team worth a crap.

What was Derrick Henry's first game

Nope.   I'm in that period of hating everyone I drafted.

From Adam Caplan   #Raiders HC Jon Gruden on RB Josh Jacobs after practice today when asked how he looked this week: "Pretty good. He got work all three days. I think that's a good sign.

It's weird cause we all knew this already but something about hearing it just makes that bit of worry creep in. Honestly the bigger concern is Tennessee getting up, killing clock with Henry, while also gamescripting Jacobs out. 

Im facing Jacobs in my quaterfinal matchup this week. I am okay with this situation lol

The Raiders have been quite good at home except for a loss to KC. I think it will be a tight game with lots of run from both sides.

He didn't practice today. Is there a chance he had a set back this week or something and doesn't play?

I remember him missing a Wednesday practice earlier this year(I grabbed Washington as a potential plug n play) and he ended up coming back to practice Thursday. I wouldn't start to worry unless he's DNP tomorrow too

There is definitely a chance. I thought it was odd that the injury news came out the other day, seemed like very random timing. But this sure seems like that was leaked as a foreshadow for him sitting this week.That news along with back-to-back DNPs leads me to believe he's being held out this week.

Those in the know, is Washington definitely the handcuff to own over Richards if Jacobs is out?

But he leaked it on his instagram story... so I dont know that your logic holds up. 

He could still sit out, but didnt seem like a leak in the way youre' saying

They're a game back of a wild card and one of the teams ahead of them they play on Sunday

Right, people saying these things about Julio, Jacobs, Barkley, etc. This isn't the NBA there are only 17 games that matter and players have incentives, bonuses, playing for a job, etc.

He'll play, he haven't been practicing as much since the shoulder but, he also seem to get a limited practice on friday and plays

Unless this a new diagnoses. The initial was an AC joint sprain.

He's been missing practices for the last number of weeks and still plays. Unless there was some sort of setback this is a weird time to announce it. Unless its almost fully healed and they can announce it now so other players aren't taking shots at his arm.  It should have been close to healed by now if it was a fracture so maybe that is why they announce it now. Just a bit more rest for him....

 

That's the story I'm going with... lol

I'm not positive on this but as a Jacobs owner in all of my leagues I have been tracking him closely... I am pretty sure these are the first practices that he has missed completely.  He has been limited on wednesdays and thursdays for the past two months but I can't remember him being a complete no show.  Please correct me if I'm wrong because I would love to be.

This is correct.

He has sat out a few Tuesdays and Wednesdays, and has been limited on Thursdays...but he has never straight up DNP back to back Wednesday and Thursday before. This, combined with the timing of him announcing the fracture has me more than a little concerned about his status. Today's practice report will be huge.

They wouldn't announce it once it was healed and then hold him out of practice all week. As mentioned, this is the first time he's been DNP two consecutive practices. = Not good. The writing on the wall is that he's out this week.

considering benching him this week. got a bad feeling about this if (when) they fall behind

They are only a 3 pt dog and at home, doesn't seen like a game he will be scripted out of. 47.5 pt total is nice also.
