News: Jones-Drew suffered a finger injury in Friday's preseason game against the Lions, ESPN.com reports. Impact: The 29-year-old left early in the second quarter and did not return, but the team has yet to elaborate on severity of the injury. Jones-Drew got the start for the Raiders and totaled 12 yards on six carries, with just three of those carries going for positive yardage, but he did haul in a 22-yard catch. If Jones-Drew is forced to miss practice time, Darren McFadden would presumably see most of the first-team work, though Latavius Murray could see some reps as well.(RotoWire, )

News: Jones-Drew gained 12 yards on six carries and 22 yards on one reception in Friday's preseason game against the Lions. Impact: The Raiders played things the same as last week, as Jones-Drew started while Darren McFadden also saw significant playing time with the first-team offense. McFadden got three consecutive goal-line carries and scored a touchdown, which may have created a mini-panic among those who have already drafted MJD. It's unwise to assume that McFadden will dominate the goal-line touches, but it's a possibility that should be considered, at least for the time being. Hopefully someone from the Raiders will comment on the situation soon.(RotoWire, )

News: Jones-Drew gained 10 yards on two carries and 14 yards on two receptions in Friday's preseason opener versus the Vikings. Impact: As expected, Jones-Drew got the start and played the first two drives, before handing things over to Darren McFadden, who rushed for 23 yards on his only carry. Jones-Drew is listed atop the depth chart and is seemingly in line to start, but the first-team practice reps have reportedly been divided. As pretty much anyone could have guessed, the Raiders will likely go with a timeshare between the two veterans.(RotoWire, )
