New, comments

The Raiders Thursday injury report is out and they added yet another of their running backs on the injured list.

Darren McFadden and Mike Goodson are still not practicing with their high ankle sprains. Now Taiwan Jones has joined them on the injured list.

Jones left Sunday's game against the Saints with an ankle injury which left the Raiders with just two healthy running backs-Marcel Reece and Jeremy Stewart. Jones was back at practice on Wednesday and wasn't listed on the injury report. But that ankle injury has flared up causing him to be limited in practice on Thursday.

The team opted not to sign a running back when McFadden and Goodson went out and instead called up practice squad rookie, Jeremy Stewart. But if Jones is unable to play on Sunday, the team will be back to just Reece and Stewart again.

Also added to the injury list Thursday was defensive end Jack Crawford who did not practice with a toe injury. The other change was Denarius Moore, who was limited on Wednesday, was removed from the injured list.

Also not practicing again was Richard Seymour (hamstring, knee). Limited was Tyvon Branch (neck), Darrius Heyward-Bey (hamstring), and Brandon Myers (shoulder).
