Both Raiders RBs Darren McFadden and Mike Goodson were limited, and while it's not known if either will play, or how much, coach Dennis Allen said fullback Marcel Reece has staked his claim to some more carries.
While both backs were out, Reece carried 48 times for 225 yards in three games, averaging 4.7 yards per carry.
"Marcel has earned the right to carry the ball some,'' Allen said. "We'll use him in that capacity.''
It sounds as if Reece will have a role in the running game regardless of the status of McFadden or Goodson. He should remain a flex start, especially in PPR formats where his receiving skills are even more valuable.
