Taiwan Jones RB OAK 5 months ago

Jones (knee) is active Sunday against the Packers.

Competitive Edge Analysis

After missing practice on Wednesday, he put in a limited session on Thursday and a full session on Friday. He'll function as the team's primary kick returner, but he'll also see occasional snaps at running back.

Jones (knee) is probable for Sunday's game against the Packers.

Competitive Edge Analysis

The primary returner for the Raiders was able to practice fully Friday, so it appears as if he'll be good to go Sunday against the Packers. Jones hasn't seen many opportunities out of the backfield despite being listed as Latavius Murray's primary back up, so he shouldn't be thought of as a realistic fantasy contributor this week.

Jones rushed for two yards on one carry in Sunday's win over the Broncos.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Jones returned to action on Sunday after missing last week's game with a knee injury, as he received just his second carry in the last four games. The fifth-year running back has been used as the Raiders' primary return-man for most of the season, and he's only record 16 carries for 74 yards across 13 games. Jones might receive carries from time-to-time when Latavius Murray needs a break, but he shouldn't be considered a realistic fantasy option at the running back position.

Jones (knee) is active Sunday against the Broncos.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Jones was limited in practice on Thursday and Friday, and he'll be ready to go against the Broncos. He'll function as the Raiders primary kick returner.

Jones (knee) is questionable for Sunday's matchup against the Broncos.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Jones was limited in practice Thursday and Friday, so it's no certainty that the Raiders' No. 1 kick returner could make an appearance Sunday against the Broncos. That being said, the 27-year-old should be considered more of a game-time decision.

Jones (knee) is inactive for Sunday's contest against the Chiefs.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Jones followed up limited practices Wednesday and Thursday with a no-show Friday, which forecast his second absence in a row. While he tends to a knee injury, the Raiders will turn to Latavius Murray and, to a lesser extent, Jamize Olawale out of the backfield.

Jones (knee) is doubtful for Sunday's game against the Chiefs.

Competitive Edge Analysis

The Raiders have yet to officially rule their primary kick returner out, but it seems likely Jones could miss Sunday's game after sustaining a knee injury in Week 11. Roy Helu will likely slot in as the team's backup running back behind Latavius Murray should Jones miss any time, but it's unclear who might take over on kick returns if the 27-year-old is eventually ruled inactive.

Jones (knee) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Jones sustained the knee injury Week 11 in Detroit, and that forced the 27-year-old back into an inactive status for last week's matchup against Tennessee. Whether or not the Raiders have their primary kick return man back in action for Week 13 will likely be dependent on his practice status the rest of the week.

Jones (knee) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Titans.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Though he's listed as a backup at running back to starter Latavius Murray, most of Jones' usefulness comes on special teams, where he serves as the club's kickoff returner. It looks like the latter duties will now fall to the newly promoted Jeremy Ross, while Roy Helu serves as the top backup to Murray at running back.

Jones (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game in Tennessee.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Jones returned to a limited practice Friday, after missing practice both Wednesday and Thursday. He doesn't seem like a good bet to suit up, which may explain why the Raiders signed WR Jeremy Ross, who has extensive experience returning punts and kickoffs. An absence wouldn't have much impact on Oakland's offense, as Jones typically plays fewer than 15 snaps. However, Roy Helu would likely be active for the first time since Week 8.
