The Oakland Raiders will take on the Denver Broncos Sunday without star rookie running back Josh Jacobs, who was officially downgraded to out for the must-win game.
Oakland is somehow still alive for the playoffs heading into Week 17. They have to win and get a ton of help to claim the final wild-card spot.
The rookie first-round pick out of Alabama has totaled 1,316 yards and seven touchdowns from scrimmage and has been the engine that drives Oakland’s offense. Without Jacobs in the backfield, the Raiders will have to get creative to make up for his absence.
