Raiders CB Taiwan Jones is possibly going back to his original NFL position, for this week at least. Jones was drafted as a RB out of Eastern Washington but made the transition to CB. Jones has been a steady special teams ace for the Raiders.

The three running backs on Oakland’s depth chart (Jeremy Stewart, Darren McFadden, and Rashad Jennings) are all dealing with injuries and were unable to practice. If they can’t go look for FBs Marcel Reece and Jamize Olawale to get carries along with Jones.
