by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/29/2013) Raiders running back Taiwan Jones was forced out of Sunday's season finale against the Broncos in Week 17 with an ankle injury. Jones suffered the injury on a kickoff return late in the first half. He was ruled doubtful to return, the team announced.

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/22/2013) The Raiders got several minor contributions in their Week 16 loss at San Diego. Taiwan Jones carried twice for 1 yard, wideout Denarius Moore caught three passes for 17 yards and tight end Jeron Mastrud hauled in a 12-yard pass.

Receiver Rod Streater could not hang on to a 39-yard touchdown catch -- the play was upheld on review -- and finished with one 2-yard reception on five targets. They'll all play the Broncos in Week 17.


Raiders get minor contributions in Week 15


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/15/2013) The Raiders received minor contributions from several role players during Sunday's blowout loss to the Chiefs in Week 15.

In the running game, fullback Jamize Olawale rushed for two yards on one carry. In the passing game, Taiwan Jones, who converted to cornerback before the start of the season, came down with a short pass from Matt McGloin and took it up the field for a 52-yard gain for his only catch of the day. He also lost a fumble.

Chimdi Chekwa also caught one pass for a gain of 22 yards. Jeron Mastrud and Nick Kasa both received a target but finished the game without a grab.

Raiders backup RBs get involved Week 14 due to injuries


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12/8/2013) Raiders running back Taiwan Jones and running back Jamize Olawale got involved on offense Week 14 at N.Y. Jets with running backs Darren McFadden and Rashad Jennings sidelined due to injuries. However, neither player had major contributions in a 37-27 loss. 

Jones, who moved from defense to offense because of the injuries, totaled two carries for 3 yards, while adding one catch for 3 yards. 

Olawale, who had just seven touches on offense coming into Sunday, finished with two catches for 10 yards. He was targeted four times.


Darren McFadden a no-go at Wednesday practice


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/4/2013) Raiders deposed featured back Darren McFadden did not practice Wednesday. He had returned to game action from a hamstring injury Sunday in Dallas, but had just five carries.

His inactivity, which could be precautionary, resulted in practice reps at that spot for cornerback Taiwan Jones, according to ESPN.


Jones moving to corner


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(2/22/2013) ESPN reports that Oakland's Taiwan Jones plans to move from running back to cornerback this season, which is being received well from the Raiders' brass. “I’m pushing for cornerback,” Oakland general manager Reggie McKenzie said. “I think it fits his skill set. I think we’re going to see how he does there.” McKenzie acknowledged it will not be easy for Jones to make a position switch, but he thinks he can do it. McKenzie said he’d be thrilled if Jones could someday develop into a nickel cornerback. McKenzie said he had Jones projected as a cornerback when Oakland took him in the fourth round out of Eastern Washington in 2011.
