Raiders RB Josh Jacobs ruled out vs. Steelers

Las Vegas Raiders running back Josh Jacobs has been ruled out for Sunday’s game against the host Pittsburgh Steelers.

Coach Jon Gruden confirmed the status of Jacobs, who is nursing toe and ankle injuries stemming from the Raiders’ 33-27 overtime victory over the Baltimore Ravens on Monday night.

Kenyan Drake is expected to handle the bulk of the rushing duties on Sunday in place of Jacobs, who had 10 carries for 34 yards and two touchdowns in the season opener.

Drake, 27, had six carries for 11 yards to go along with five receptions for 59 yards against the Ravens.

The Raiders also ruled out guard Richie Incognito (calf), linebacker Nick Kwiatkoski (concussion), backup quarterback Marcus Mariota (quadriceps) and safety Roderic Teamer (ankle). Defensive ends Carl Nassib (pectoral, toe) and Yannick Ngakoue (hamstring) and defensive tackle Darius Philon (knee) are questionable.

Jacobs rushed for 1,065 yards and 12 touchdowns and had 33 catches for 238 yards in 15 games last season. The 23-year-old has rushed for 2,249 yards with 21 touchdowns and added 54 receptions for 410 yards in 29 career games since being selected by the Raiders with the 24th overall pick of the 2019 NFL Draft.

Steelers defensive tackle Carlos Davis (knee) has been ruled out. Pittsburgh also added cornerback Joe Haden (groin), linebacker Devin Bush (groin) and tight end Zach Gentry (ankle) to the injury report on Friday. All three are listed as questionable.
