Jacobs (ribs) is expected to play Sunday night against the Chargers, Taylor Bisciotti of NFL Network reports.
Jacobs is officially listed as questionable for the contest, so his status is nonetheless worth confirming ahead of Sunday's 8:20 p.m. ET kickoff. If he is indeed in uniform versus Los Angeles, Jacobs would be in line to head the Raiders' Week 18 backfield, with Peyton Barber and Jalen Richard available to spell him and work in complementary roles. For those looking to secure a contingency plan just to be safe, Barber is worth considering.
