Raiders RB Josh Jacobs has missed the last two games due to toe and ankle injuries. Josh Jacobs will be a game-time decision for the Raiders’ Monday Night Football matchup against their division rivals, the Los Angeles Chargers.

Jacobs last played Week 1 against the Baltimore Ravens on Monday Night Football. Jacobs ran for 34 yards 10 carries and 2 TDs, and caught 1 pass for 6 yards in that game.

“We’re going to list [Jacobs] as questionable,” head coach Jon Gruden said at his Saturday press conference. “We’ll run him around gameday and see how he feels. We are still getting Peyton Barber the reps that he needs to learn our offense… We’re working Jacobs back in, so I would think right now he’s very questionable, and we’ll have to let you know on Monday night.”

RB Peyton Barber has seen a bigger workload in Jacobs’ absence. Barber ran for a career-high 111 rushing yards and 1 TD on 23 carries, and added 31 receiving yards on 3 catches against the Miami Dolphins in Week 3. If Josh Jacobs remains out against the Chargers, expect Barber to continue seeing additional carries.

Raiders CB Trayvon Mullen has been limited in practice this week with a shoulder injury, but was upgraded to a full participant on Saturday.

Josh Jacobs is the only Raider listed as questionable against the Raiders. Tune in to the Raiders gameday inactives an hour and a half before Monday’s game for his final game status.
