Raiders’ RB Isaiah Crowell tore his Achilles during a workout with the team Monday and is out for the season, per source. Crowell will undergo season-ending surgery next week. Brutal blow for a player who signed a one-year contract with Oakland.
The Raiders signed Crowell before drafting Josh Jacobs in the first round, so Crowell was likely to back up Jacobs unless the rookie fell flat on his face in the preseason. Jacobs still has to compete for passing down snaps with Jalen Richard, but is otherwise looking good for 250+ targets in 2019.
