Jacobs is dealing with a broken shoulder plate and has played through it the past five weeks since sustaining the injury in Green Bay. While there is no guarantee he plays today, Jacobs is trying not to miss his first game this season, according to Rapoport. Officially listed as questionable, Jacobs missed two practices before participating on Friday in limited fashion.
Entering Sunday, the rookie is fifth overall in rushing with 1,061 yards and seven touchdowns, and is on the brink of Raiders history. Jacobs is the first Raiders RB to eclipse 1,000 yards since Latavius Murray did it in 2015, and he's a top candidate for offensive Rookie of the Year, which hasn't been won by a Raider in nearly 40 years since Marcus Allen was awarded the honor in 1982.
Here are other injury news we're monitoring on Week 14 Sunday:
» Houston Texans wide receiver Will Fuller (hamstring) is not expected to play in today's home game vs. the Broncos, according to Rapoport, per source. Listed as questionable, Fuller has been dealing with the hamstring injury the past few weeks.
» Denver Broncos star linebacker Von Miller (knee) will ultimately be a game-time decision in Houston, but a source from Rapoport says he has a better chance of playing this week after missing last Sunday. Miller is trending in the right direction but not guaranteed to play.
» Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Marquise Brown (ankle) and cornerback Marlon Humphrey (thigh) are both expected to play in Buffalo, according to a source from Rapoport. Both practiced fully on Friday.
