Oakland Raiders running back Rashad Jennings will miss the team's Week 14 matchup against the New York Jets, according to John Dickinson. He is joined on the inactive list by Darren McFadden and Jeremy Stewart, making the team extremely thin at running back.
Jennings sustained a concussion against the Dallas Cowboys on Thanksgiving. The team hoped he could pass post-concussion tests this week, and he traveled with the team to New York, but it appears symptoms are lingering.
The fifth-year running back has played extremely well with McFadden struggling with injury. Jennings has run for 588 yards and four touchdowns in 2013, averaging 4.7 yards per carry -- the best of his career. The Raiders are expected to use Pro Bowl fullback Marcel Reese as the team's primary rusher on Sunday.
Oakland has not been mathematically eliminated from the playoffs in a weak AFC but faces a must-win game against the Jets. Losing Jennings at running back compounds the team's problems on offense and puts more pressure on undrafted free agent rookie Matt McGloin to put the team on his back.
