EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. – The Oakland Raiders are down three running backs against the New York Jets with Darren McFadden, Rashad Jennings and Jeremy Stewart all inactive.
Fullback Marcel Reece is getting the start Sunday, with cornerback-turned-running back Taiwan Jones backing him up. McFadden was ruled out earlier in the week because of an ankle injury, while Jennings has a concussion and Stewart is dealing with knee and ankle ailments.
Wide receiver Denarius Moore is missing his third straight game with a shoulder injury. Safety Tyvon Branch won't play despite returning to practice for the first time since breaking his right leg in Week 2.
New York wide receiver Jeremy Kerley will play for the first time since dislocating his left elbow on Nov. 3, but Stephen Hill is out with a knee ailment.
