Jacobs won't be charged with a DUI following a Jan. 4 arrest related to a single vehicle collision in Las Vegas, Nev., Glenn Puit of the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports. Jacobs' legal woes aren't over, though, as he faces a misdemeanor count of failure to decrease speed or use due care under certain circumstances. Once the legal process works itself out -- he has a March court date on the docket -- the NFL could levy a punishment if he was deemed to violate the personal conduct policy. On the field this past season, Jacobs accounted for 1,303 yards from scrimmage and 12 touchdowns on 273 carries and 33 catches (45 targets) in 15 games.
Jacobs was arrested Monday on a DUI charge relating to a single vehicle collision, Kevin Bolinger of FOX 5 Vegas reports. Jacobs was taken to a local hospital to be evaluated after the vehicular collision, per Bolinger. The second-year pro has since been released from both custody and the hospital, and he's been assigned with a March court appearance date. Based on the NFL's precedent of assigning punishments for DUI arrests, it's possible that Jacobs could face a short suspension during the 2021 season. He had 273 carries for 1,065 yards and 12 touchdowns through 15 games in 2020, while also securing 33 of 45 targets for 238 yards.
Jacobs carried the ball 15 times for 89 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's 32-31 win over the Broncos. He failed to catch his only target. After gashing Denver for two TDs in their first meeting in Week 10, Jacobs repeated the feat in the season finale. The second-year back finished the campaign with 1,065 rushing yards and a career-high 12 touchdowns, but he dealt with nagging injuries once again and has yet to play a full 16-game schedule. Jacobs will head into 2021 at the top of the Raiders backfield depth chart.
Jacobs totaled 69 yards on 13 carries during Saturday's 26-25 loss to the Dolphins. Jacobs took an IV on Saturday, as he was not feeling well going into the game, according to Paul Gutierrez of ESPN.com. Jacobs had an opportunity to punch in a game-winning touchdown with two overtime carries inside the five-yard line during a Week 15 loss to the Chargers. Again against Miami, the 22-year-old came up short in a pair of short-yardage situations. A Jacobs first-quarter goal-line carry landed Las Vegas a yard short of a touchdown before Derek Carr scored on a QB sneak the following play. Meanwhile, a 4th-and-1 plunge from Las Vegas' own 47 with 8:36 to go in the third quarter lost one yard. Making matters worse, Jacobs appeared to purposely go down short of the goal line twice as the Raiders were playing for time and a field goal late in the fourth quarter vs. going for a touchdown. Even so, Jacobs' opportunities remain ample as the powerful back has garnered 13-plus carries in seven of his past eight outings heading into a Week 17 road trip to Denver.
Jacobs rushed 26 times for 76 yards and a touchdown and secured all three targets for 38 yards in the Raiders' 30-27 overtime loss to the Chargers on Thursday night. Jacobs not only came into the critical divisional clash for the Raiders dealing with a nagging ankle issue, but he exited the game late in the fourth quarter to have his knee tended to. However, the second-year lead back quickly returned on the fourth play of Las Vegas' overtime-opening possession, logging six touches on a drive that culminated in a Daniel Carlson field goal. Jacobs' game-tying one-yard scoring leap in the third quarter served as his 10th touchdown of the season, while his yardage tally Thursday was his highest since Week 10 against the Broncos. He'll look to continue producing in a Week 16 battle versus the Dolphins on Saturday night, Dec. 26.
