RB: Josh Jacobs

Josh Jacobs (illness) remained sidelined for Friday's practice.

Jacobs has handled 28-of-32 running back carries (and 10-of-12 backfield targets) without Peyton Barber available the past two games but could take a backseat to Kenyan Drake if absent for Saturday's walkthrough. Presumably a non-COVID illness, it's still possible Jacobs is cleared to play. Drake has handled three touches the past two weeks but would likely handle the lion's share of touches ahead of Jalen Richard if both Jacobs and Barber (turf toe) are ruled out.
