Raiders RB Rashad Jennings has a concussion
Raiders running back Rashad Jennings suffered a concussion late in Thursday's loss to the Cowboys. Jennings was concussed when the knee of a Dallas defensive player colided with the back of Jennings' helmet. He was motionless for a few moments before wobbling off the field and into the locker room. Jennings finished the day with 43 scrimmage yards and two touchdowns.
The hit to Jennings' head looked bad, but all people recover differently from concussions. He'll have 10 days to get cleared before the Raiders face the Jets' elite run defense. Darren McFadden would see a large workload if Jennings is out, but Jennings should remain the clear top dog in this backfield for as long as he's healthy. Jennings has been one of the best fantasy running backs this month, but you will need to lower your expectations for him against the Jets.
