Despite nursing a shoulder injury for over a month, it sounds like Josh Jacobs will continue to play through the pain. For the first time this week, the first-round pick from Alabama participated at practice.
Oakland has lost back-to-back games for the first time since October. Even though most of the offense has struggled in recent weeks, Jacobs has performed fairly well.
He currently has 1,061 rushing yards and seven touchdowns this season.
Jacobs missed practice on Wednesday and Thursday due to injury. It’s not unusual for him to be absent for practice, but there was legitimate concern about his status for this weekend.
Those doubts about whether or not Jacobs will suit up this Sunday may disappear because of the latest update on him.
According to Vic Tafur of The Athletic, the Raiders had Jacobs back at practice.

While it’s certainly great news for the Raiders that Jacobs is back at practice, it’s discouraging to see that Trent Brown is out again. He’s dealing with a pectoral issue.
Oakland needs all hands on deck this weekend against Tennessee. Another loss would all but destroy any chance the team has of making the postseason.
Kickoff for the Raiders-Titans game is at 4:25 p.m. ET on CBS.
