Jacobs is dealing with a toe injury and didn't go in Week 2. Barber stole 12 carries but only produced 32 yards. Drake made his money in the passing game hauling in five catches for 46 yards. With Marcus Mariota on IR, Peterman would be next up if Carr can't go.
After running 31 yards on a designed quarterback keep in his only snap of Monday's showdown against the Ravens, Mariota will sit on IR for the next 3 weeks. He will be eligible to return Week 5 against the Bears. Expect Jon Gruden's golden boy, Nathan Peterman, to slide in as David Carr's primary backup.
While Mariota is Las Vegas’ backup quarterback, Gruden apparently had significant plans for the 2015 No. 2 overall pick saying, “Yeah, we lost a big part of our offense,” Gruden said. “Hopefully it’s not going to linger on.” Peterman is next up on the depth chart.
