Both players left in the first half. Shepard came into the game as the team's leading receiver and was likely a popular waiver pickup heading into Week 3. Golladay led the way in Week 3 with a 4-64-0 line on five targets. Johnson had a 5-51-0 line with seven targets. Surprisingly, the rookie first round pick Toney only had three targets and finished with a 2-16-0 line.
Las Vegas’ next matchup will be on Monday Night Football in Week 4 against the Chargers, and they may have Josh Jacobs available for it.
“I met with Josh this morning,” head coach Jon Gruden said in his Monday press conference. “We’re going to see how he feels on the practice field this week. I’m not making any predictions, but we’re hopeful that we can get him back on the grass at some point this week.”
The 2019 first-round pick hasn’t practiced since Week 1, missing the last two games with an ankle injury. Jacobs was apparently closer to playing in Week 3 than he was in Week 2, as he was listed as doubtful instead of out for the matchup with Miami, the story said. Barber racked up over 100 yards on the ground in Week 3.
As our other story on Brown earlier today pointed out, it's been a tough start to the season, and not surprisingly he's now in danger of missing some time. Jones missed time in the game as well, but reports say that was workload-related. Jones could take on the bulk of the work going forward, however, if Brown has to sit. Little known Westbrook-Ikhine caught four balls for 53 yards and a TD. Westbrook-Ikhine did garner some hype in the offseason so it's possible he gets a chance and a bigger role if Brown misses time. Rogers had just one catch but it did go for a TD.
