Injuries: Josh Jacobs (shoulder) out vs. Titans

Oakland Raiders running back Josh Jacobs (shoulder) is set to be inactive for today's home game versus the Tennessee Titans, according to NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport, per a source informed.

Jacobs is dealing with a fractured shoulder blade and has played through it the past five weeks since sustaining the injury in Green Bay. The rookie RB was considered a game-time decision for the matchup after being listed as questionable on the injury report and missing two practices this week.

Rapoport added that Jacobs will have an MRI this week on the injured shoulder.

Entering Sunday, the rookie is fifth overall in rushing with 1,061 yards and seven touchdowns, and is on the brink of Raiders history. Jacobs is the first Raiders running back to eclipse 1,000 yards since Latavius Murray did it in 2015, and he's a top candidate for offensive Rookie of the Year, which hasn't been won by a Raider in nearly 40 years since Marcus Allen was awarded the honor in 1982.
