Jones was a limited participant at Wednesday's practice due to a knee injury.

EDGE Analysis

Jones' knee injury is a separate ailment than the one that limited him in practice a week ago. Even though Jones is listed as the No. 2 running back on the Raiders roster, the numbers don't reflect it, as he has received one carry through the first two weeks of the season compared to 12 for DeAndre Washington and nine for Jalen Richard.

Jones (concussion) is active for Sunday's contest versus the Falcons.

EDGE Analysis

Jones' practice reps this week were contingent upon the concussion protocol, but a full session Friday seemed to clear the running back for action come game day. Expect the six-year pro to handle kick-return duties in addition to the occasional touch out of the backfield.

Jones (concussion) is considered questionable for Sunday's game against the Falcons.

EDGE Analysis

Jones was a full participant at practice Friday, and barring any setbacks, he's expected to take the field for the Raiders in their Week 2 tilt. He was the recipient of three offensive touches along with kick return duties Week 1, while his role should be similar this week.

Jones recorded one rush for a loss of eight yards, two receptions for 17 yards, and three kick returns for 49 yards during Sunday's win over the Saints.

EDGE Analysis

Jones was used in multiple capacities Sunday, notching two targets from Derek Carr in the passing game, but rushing the ball just once. He spent most of his time on special teams as expected, while rookie running backs Jalen Richard and DeAndre Washington served as Latavius Murray's primary backups. This trend is expected to continue, although Jones remains listed as No. 2 on the depth chart.

While listed as the No. 2 running back on Oakland's depth chart, Jones is essentially just a special teams player, according to the Bay Area News Group.

EDGE Analysis

Seemingly giving a nod to seniority, the Raiders continue to list Jones ahead of DeAndre Washington and Jalen Richard (arm), even though both rookies are more likely to actually get carries. Jones is listed as the starting kick returner, but he'll otherwise struggle to get touches. Washington is clearly the preferred handcuff to starting running back Latavius Murray, and even Richard is a better depth option than Jones in deep formats that don't count return yardage.

Jones appears to be the leading candidate to return kickoffs for the Raiders, Eddie Paskal of Raiders.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Jones is listed second on the team's running back depth chart, but with rookie DeAndre Washington impressing thus far throughout training camp, Jones is realistically the No. 3 option out of the backfield. At this point he might project to have more of a role in the return game, although Washington along with receiver Johnny Holton figure to be given opportunities on kickoffs throughout the remainder of the preseason.

Although Jones is listed second on the unofficial depth chart, DeAndre Washington has served as the primary backup during practice, CSN Bay Area reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Raiders are likely just listing Jones ahead of the rookie due to seniority, as early reports leave little doubt that Washington is the favorite to serve as Latavius Murray's top backup. Jones, meanwhile, may have to scrap just to earn a roster spot, as UDFA Jalen Richard is already making a strong impression.

Jones returned to practice Saturday after missing back-to-back sessions, Paul Gutierrez of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Absent for two days of practice for an undisclosed reason, Jones was active in a fully-padded session Saturday. The five-year veteran will look to sustain his place in the RB pecking order behind starter Latavius Murray.
