  • Raiders' Zamir White: Quiet in second preseason game

    White started Sunday's preseason tilt against the Vikings -- with Josh Jacobs being a healthy scratch -- rushing five times for 13 yards and catching two of three targets for four yards.

    White wasn't able to replicate his strong showing from the Hall of Fame Game on Aug. 4 (75 total yards), but his status as the starter bodes well for his prospects of moving up the depth chart as a rookie. With starter Josh Jacobs (rest) looking healthy for the start of the regular season, White's best-case scenario might end up being a change-of-pace/third-down role where he gets to flash his big-play ability with a handful of touches each week. For fantasy purposes, there might not be enough volume for the fourth-round pick to be a standard-league option early on, but he is certainly a name to monitor, should he carve out a larger role. We should get a clearer picture of the backfield depth chart during the Raiders' third preseason game against Miami next Saturday.

  • Raiders' Zamir White: Impressive in preseason opener

    White rushed 11 times for 52 yards and brought in three of four targets for 23 yards during the Raiders' 27-11 preseason win over the Jaguars in Thursday's Hall of Fame Game.

    The rookie fourth-round pick was notably the second running back in behind Josh Jacobs and paced the Las Vegas backfield on the night in carries and rushing yards, flashing some of the efficiency that led to him averaging over 5.0 yards per carry in each of his three college seasons at Georgia. White's work as a receiver was equally encouraging, considering he finished his time with the Bulldogs having garnered just 17 receptions in 37 games. White is likely to see another solid dose of action when the Raiders face the Vikings in their next preseason contest on Sunday, Aug. 14.

  • Raiders' Zamir White: Back at practice

    White, who missed the first two days of training camp with an undisclosed injury, has returned to practice, Vic Tafur of The Athletic reports.

    Tafur adds that the 2022 fourth-rounder has impressed since returning to the field, with running backs coach Kennedy Polamalu noting of White that "he's tough, has good contact balance, and you can see the growth in a new system." Now that he's back in the mix, the Georgia product will look to carve out a role in a Raiders backfield that's currently headed by returnees Josh Jacobs and Kenyan Drake. For now, White doesn't have a clear path to steady early-season volume, but that narrative could change down the road if he continues to impress this summer and/or either Jacobs or Drake miss time for any reason.

  • Raiders' Zamir White: Coach downplays injury

    Coach Josh McDaniels doesn't expect a lengthy absence for White, who is dealing with an undisclosed injury, Hondo S. Carpenter of Sports Illustrated reports.

    "He's doing everything he can to get back out there as soon as possible," McDaniels said of White, "And the hope would be that it's not too much longer." Drafted in the fourth round out of Georgia in 2022, White will join a crowded Raiders backfield that also includes Josh Jacobs, Kenyan Drake and Brandon Bolden once the rookie's cleared to practice.

  • Raiders' Zamir White: Not yet practicing

    White missed a third straight practice Tuesday for unspecified reasons, Tashan Reed of The Athletic reports.

    White's ongoing absence won't help his case from taking any work away from veteran starter Josh Jacobs, but the rookie fourth-round pick still has six weeks to make an impression before the beginning of the regular season. The Raiders have White, Kenyan Drake, Brandon Bolden, Ameer Abdullah and Brittain Brown as the backfield alternatives behind Jacobs, with White perhaps being the best fit for short-yardage work and/or early downs.
