Josh Jacobs' pain reportedly is too much to play through Sunday.
The Raiders running back posted on Snapchat last week that he fractured his shoulder, and NFL Media's Ian Rapoport reported Sunday, citing a source, that the rookie out of Alabama will not play as a result of the injury.
Source: #Raiders RB Josh Jacobs (shoulder) is not able to play today. He's slated to be inactive. A big challenge for Oakland. He has an MRI scheduled for this week.

Jacobs, 21, has run for 1,061 yards on 218 attempts in his record-setting rookie season, surpassing Marcus Allen's first-year rushing mark in Week 9 and crossing the 1,000-yard plateau in last week's blowout loss to the Kansas City Chiefs.
The Raiders face a must-win situation Sunday at home against the Tennessee Titans, with Oakland's playoff hopes on life support after back-to-back losses to the New York Jets and the rival Chiefs. Jacobs has been a focal point of the Raiders' offense in his first NFL season, ranking ninth in the league with 236 total touches.
Jacobs won't be the only big absence in the running game. Starting right tackle Trent Brown will not play at the Coliseum, either.
