Per NFL Media’s Ian Rapoport, Raiders running back Josh Jacobs will miss tonight’s game against the Chargers as well. Second-year pro and 2022 fourth-round pick Zamir White will be making his first NFL start on Thursday Night Football.


UPDATED at 3:02 p.m. PT

The Las Vegas Raiders will be without center Andre James (ankle) in addition to left tackle Kolton Miller.

Dylan Parham is expected to play center Jordan Meredith will likely play guard for him as was the case against Minnesota on Sunday when James got hurt.

Running back Josh Jacobs (quad), receiver Davante Adams (illness) and defensive end Maxx Crosby (knee) are questionable to play against the Chargers.

Also, ESPN reported The Raiders are planning to stick with rookie quarterback Aidan O’Connell as the tarter, which really isn’t surprising.

Star wide receiver Keenan Allen (heel) is out for the Chargers along with standout quarterback Justin Herbert who is out for the season with a finger injury.

The Las Vegas Raiders will likely be without standout left tackle Kolton Miller on Thursday night against the Los Angeles Chargers at Allegiant Stadium. Kickoff is set for 5:15 p.m. PT.

Miller has a shoulder and this will be his second straight missed and and the fourth missed game in the past five games for him. In Week 14, Thayer Munford played left tackle and Jermaine Eluemunor played right tackle. Eluemunor move to left tackle and Munford played on the right side in the other games Miller missed.

Meanwhile, Raiders’ interim head coach Antonio Pierce said the team still hasn’t decided on whether rookie Aidan O’Connell or veteran Jimmy Garoppolo will play Thursday. Pierce indicated he’d make the decision later Wednesday. He did state he never said O’Connell isn’t playing.

Also, Pierce didn’t have any updates on the game status of running back Josh Jacobs. He suffered a quad injury in the loss to Minnesota. The injury report will be released later Wednesday.
