Las Vegas Raiders Pro Bowl running back Josh Jacobs returned to practice Thursday after missing the past two games with an ankle injury.

Also, Raiders RB Jalen Richard has been designated to return from injured reserve. He suffered a foot injury during training camp and missed the first three games. The Raiders have three weeks to activate him.

Jacobs was injured in the Raiders’ season-opening win over the Baltimore Ravens. He rushed for just 34 yards on 10 carries.

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.
