Marcel Reece RB OAK Jul 24 '79

Marcel Reece caught one pass for nine yards in Oakland's Week 6 loss to the Chiefs, and was held without a carry.

Reece wasn't a part of the running game with both Darren McFadden (hamstring) and Rashad Jennings (hamstring) healthy and active. Reece can be safely cut loose in fantasy leagues.

Marcel Reece (knee) participated in Raiders practice again Friday.

Reece will be all systems go against the Chiefs, but hasn't been a big part of the Raiders' offense in terms of touches. He's not a fantasy option.

Marcel Reece (knee) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

Reece played the entire second half in Sunday's win over the Chargers and didn't suffer any setbacks. He isn't in any danger of missing Week 6. With Darren McFadden and Rashad Jennings also practicing on a limited basis, Reece is looking unlikely to start at running back this week.

Marcel Reece had seven carries for 32 yards in Sunday night's Week 5 win over San Diego.

Reece was able to play the entire game despite being listed as questionable with a knee injury. With Rashad Jennings (hamstring) sidelined, he took over as the lead back in the second half and was the more effective runner. He added three catches for 25 yards and remains a factor in red-zone and passing situations. Reece could come into fantasy value this week if both Jennings and Darren McFadden are held out.

Raiders FB Marcel Reece (knee, questionable) was limited in Friday's practice.

Reece is more likely than not to be active in Sunday's late-night bout with San Diego, though it's not a sure thing and his role is totally up in the air in terms of touches. Look for Rashad Jennings to get the bulk of the carries.

Marcel Reece (knee) practiced for the second straight day Thursday.

Reece will likely be "limited" for the second consecutive day, but he's suddenly a possibility for Sunday's late-night game. Rashad Jennings will still be the better fantasy bet, but it will be a situation to avoid if it becomes clear Reece is going to suit up against the Chargers.

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

Reece, whose MRI came back negative, was spotted going through some drills with teammates at the early part of practice. It suggests he at least has an outside shot at suiting up against the Chargers Sunday. If that's the case, Reece and Rashad Jennings would form a committee. Owners that added Jennings as a plug-n-play for this week need to follow Reece's status closely.

Marcel Reece's (knee) MRI came back negative, but he is without a timetable for a return.

Typically vague coach Dennis Allen would only confirm that Reece doesn't need surgery. At best, Reece appears to be week to week, and can be safely ruled out for Week 5. With Darren McFadden (hamstring) also ailing, the Raiders could be forced to rely on plodder Rashad Jennings in a big way against the Chargers.

Marcel Reece's knee injury is considered more serious than Darren McFadden's hamstring pull.

The Raiders did not update the status of either one of their backs following Sunday's loss to the Redskins. But given how quickly each one was ruled out for the game, we'd be stunned to see them in Week 5. Rashad Jennings rushed 15 times for 45 yards and caught eight passes for 71 yards in a relief role Sunday.

Raiders FB Marcel Reece suffered a knee injury in Week 4 against the Redskins and is done for the day.

Reece hasn't been heard from since early in the first quarter, leaving tailback duties to Rashad Jennings with Darren McFadden (hamstring) sidelined.
