Josh Jacobs, Trent Brown miss Raiders’ morning practice

Updated August 12, 2020 - 10:31 am

On the first day the Raiders could focus on football, two key players were missing Wednesday.

Neither running back Josh Jacobs nor right tackle Trent Brown were on the field for the Raiders’ morning practice.

Raiders coach Jon Gruden offered no specifics on their absence when asked if it was related to the coronavirus.

“There’s no update,” Gruden said after practice. “Everybody has a schedule. This is a strange training camp, so there will be some strange things going on. It gives us an opportunity to look at some players in this limited amount of time we want to look at them.”

Brown ended last season on the injured reserve list with a pectoral injury, and Jacobs missed three of the last four games with a shoulder injury.
