  Raiders | Week 8 injury report for Oakland    Fri Oct 25, 04:04 PM

Oakland Raiders RB Josh Jacobs (shoulder) was upgraded to a limited practice while WR Tyrell Williams (foot) remained a limited participant Friday, Oct. 25; both players are listed as questionable for Week 8 against the Houston Texans. OT Trent Brown (calf) was upgraded to a full practice Friday and is also listed as questionable. WR Dwayne Harris (ankle), C Rodney Hudson (ankle), OG Gabe Jackson (knee), DE Arden Key (knee) and RB Jalen Richard (ankle) practiced in full Friday and no longer appear on the injury report.

Footballguys view: A limited practice might be enough to get back on the field for the rookie, but he's a game time decision. DeAndre Washington would be the best back to turn to if Jacobs is out and you need a desperation play.

  Raiders | Jalen Richard to lose snaps?    Thu Jul 18, 09:35 PM

Oakland Raiders RB Jalen Richard could lose a 'good chunk' of his snaps on receiving downs to RB Josh Jacobs, according to Vic Tafur of The Athletic.

Footballguys view: Reports seem to vary coming out of Oakland. Some reporters think Jacobs is going to get a majority of the touches, while others think Richard will cut into Jacobs touches. We feel that Jacobs will be the top rusher for the Raiders in 2019, but they should use Richard as a change-of-pace back when the talented rookie needs a breather.

  Raiders | Jalen Richard should be used as receiver    Wed Jul 10, 07:02 PM

Oakland Raiders RB Jalen Richard is expected to have a solid role in the passing game this upcoming season.

Footballguys view: This goes along with the report that rookie RB Josh Jacobs may come off the field in certain passing situations. Richard is good in space and can make defenders miss after the catch. They should use Jacobs as much as possible, but give him a breather with Richard getting some snaps/time/targets/touches.

  Raiders | Josh Jacobs poised for big year?    Fri Jun 28, 02:45 AM

Oakland Raiders RB Josh Jacobs is expected to be the team's primary back this season and see most of the opportunities on first and second down, in the opinion of NBC Sports Bay Area's Scott Bair, who writes that RB Doug Martin will be primarily used as injury protection rather than to spell Jacobs during games. RB Jalen Richard is expected to see opportunities on third down.

Footballguys view: Jacobs has a lot of tread left on the tires and was one of the best passing down backs in the draft. Jon Gruden ran Cadillac Williams into the ground in his rookie year, so Jacobs could have high volume right off of the bat. He's an upside RB2 pick in a crowded 3rd-4th round tier.

  Raiders | Jalen Richard busy out of backfield    Sat Jan 19, 11:47 PM

Oakland Raiders RB Jalen Richard's 68 catches in 2018 ranked seventh among running backs, and his 607 receiving yards were the sixth most at the position,

Footballguys view: A restricted free agent in 2019, Richard is expected to return to the team next season. If that happens, Richard's role should be the same for the Raiders next season.

  Raiders | Jalen Richard likely to see bump in usage    Fri Oct 19, 05:58 PM

Oakland Raiders RB Jalen Richard is expected to see a bump in workload with RB Marshawn Lynch (groin) sidelined. Richard has just three touches when the team is leading, and 39 touches when tied or trailing, but that is expected to change with just RB Doug Martin standing in the way.

Footballguys view: That would be the expected move with Lynch down for a month or so. Martin will be the Raiders lead back but they should make room in the gameplan to get Richard involved as a receiver out of the backfield.

  Raiders | Jalen Richard diagnosed with calf strain    Sun Jul 29, 04:49 PM

Updating an earlier report, Oakland Raiders RB Jalen Richard (calf) exited practice with a calf strain Sunday, July 29.

Footballguys view: The team may sign another back and this certainly gives DeAndre Washington a leg up over Richard to make the team as the third back. Richard has been explosive in limited work and if the Raiders release him, he could find greener pastures elsewhere once healthy.

  Raiders | Jalen Richard leaves practice early    Sun Jul 29, 02:22 PM

Oakland Raiders RB Jalen Richard (undisclosed) exited practice with an undisclosed injury Sunday, July 29.

Footballguys view: The Raiders are less likely to carry both Richard and DeAndre Washington with Doug Martin added in the offseason. If this is a weeks, not days injury, Washington will have the upper hand even though Richard has outplayed him through their first two seasons.

Oakland Raiders RB Jalen Richard (calf) was limited during practice Wednesday, Sept. 27.

Footballguys view: Richard had only six snaps against Washington in Week 3. DeAndre Washington played 16 snaps...the same total as Marshawn Lynch did on Sunday. Richard is only a desperation 'what the heck' flex if he plays against the Broncos in Week 4.

  Raiders | DeAndre Washington ahead of Jalen Richard?    Fri Aug 4, 03:45 PM

Oakland Raiders RB DeAndre Washington is getting all the second-team snaps at running back in training camp over Jalen Richard, according to the San Francisco Chronicle's Vic Tafur.

Footballguys view: We don't really know for sure how well Marshawn Lynch will hold up after a layoff, and the Raiders know he's probably not the long-term answer at the position. Last season saw Washington start out ahead of Richard, only for the latter to steal his position. We suspect more of the same will happen, but make sure you check out our weekly training camp reports and keep on top of this battle. One of these two will be an important handcuff for Lynch. We lean towards Richard, but right now Washington has the edge.
