Raiders RB Josh Jacobs Undergoes Surgery For Skin Infection


On Thursday, Raiders rookie RB Josh Jacobs posted videos that showed him with a bandage on his leg.

Jacobs later clarified that the procedure was for an infection and not related to a football injury like the shoulder issue he’s been dealing with this season.

The Raiders issued the following statement regarding Jacob’s surgery: 

“Josh Jacobs woke up with discomfort in his leg on Wednesday and he was evaluated and treated for a superficial skin infection.

Jacob’s Week 17 status is still to be determined. 

Jacobs, 21, was selected with the No. 24 overall pick by the Raiders out of Alabama this past April. He later agreed to a four-year, $11,933,394 rookie contract that included a $6,698,832 signing bonus. 

The Raiders will have a fifth-year option to pick up on Jacobs for the 2023 season.

In 2019, Jacobs has appeared in 13 games for the Raiders and rushed for 1,150 yards on 242 carries (4.8 YPC) to go along with 20 receptions for 166 yards receiving and seven total touchdowns.
