Thursday’s Week 3 injury report for the Raiders highlighted the return of RB Josh Jacobs to the practice field. Jacobs was seen wearing a red non-contact jersey and running one drill at Thursday’s practice. He did not participate for long, and was officially listed as a non-participant, but his return in any capacity is a positive sign. 

Another player seen returning to the practice field today is LB Javin White. White has missed the first two games with a knee injury. 

Additionally, the injury report showed that G Richie Incognito, S Dallin Leavitt, and S Roderic Teamer did not participate in practice, sparking doubts that they will play on Sunday. 

LB Nick Kwiatkoski, DE Carl Nassib, and DT Darius Philon were limited participants in practice. The three defensive players have been working through a concussion, a pectoral and toe injury, and a knee injury, respectively. There’s hope that they will be healthy enough to play on Sunday. 

DE Yannick Ngakoue, who has been limited in practice since the Raiders Week 1 matchup, has been upgraded to a full participant. Ngakoue will be ready to go on Sunday. QB Derek Carr, FB Alec Ingold, and DT Quinton Jefferson were also full participants. 

Thursday’s injury report featured the addition of S Johnathan Abram. Abram was seen limping off the field during warm-ups accompanied by team trainers. Before long, Abram returned to practice and is listed as a full participant. 

The Raiders will host the Dolphins for their Week 3 matchup. There are no changes or additions to the Dolphins injury report. Dolphins QB Tua Tagovailoa has been ruled out with fractured ribs.

As the Raiders continue to prepare for their matchup, their focus is on getting their players healthy. Las Vegas has been hit hard by injuries thus far, and it is crucial they continue to rehabilitate their players. Friday’s injury report will feature the game status for questionable players such as Josh Jacobs and Richie Incognito.
