Drops injury tag

White (ankle) was a full participant in Tuesday's estimated injury report, Paul Gutierrez of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: White missed each of the team's last two games, but it appears he'll likely be able to play in the team's season finale Saturday against the Chiefs. It's been a relatively quiet season for the rookie, who has seen just 34 offensive snaps in 13 games, which has led to 16 carries on 66 yards. However, it's always possible he could see a heavier workload to close out the season.

Inactive Sunday

White (ankle) is inactive for Sunday's game against the 49ers.

Analysis: With White still sidelined Sunday, Ameer Abdullah, Brandon Bolden and Brittain Brown are available to handle complementary backfield duties in Week 17 behind starter Josh Jacobs. White will thus target a potential return to action next weekend against the Chiefs.

Questionable for Sunday

White (ankle) is listed as questionable for Sunday's contest against the 49ers, Rachel Gossen of the Raiders' official site reports.

Analysis: White has been limited in each practice over the past two weeks due to an ankle injury, which caused him to miss his second game of the season during the loss to Pittsburgh on Christmas Eve. The rookie running back will be considered questionable to play for the second game in a row, so it will be worth monitoring his status on the final inactives list released 90 minutes prior to Sunday's 4:05 pm E.T. kickoff. If White remains out, then Ameer Abdullah, Brandon Bolden and Brittain Brown will serve as the three available running backs behind starter Josh Jacobs.

Logs limited practice Wednesday

White (ankle) was a limited participant in the Raiders' practice Wednesday, Anthony Galaviz of The Fresno Bee reports.

Analysis: White logged two limited practice sessions last week but was ultimately ruled out for Sunday's game against Pittsburgh. His ability to start off this week with a limited session suggests that he could return to action New Year's Day versus San Francisco, though that's not a certainty given how last week played out. White's chances of playing Week 17 would be significantly boosted if he's able to participate fully in practice at some point over the next two days.

Inactive Saturday

White (ankle) is inactive for Saturday's game against the Steelers.

Analysis: White was listed as questionable for the contest after logging limited practices Wednesday and Thursday, and he'll sit this one out, which leaves Ameer Abdullah, Brandon Bolden and Brittain Brown to handle complementary backfield duties Saturday behind Josh Jacobs. White will target a potential return to action in Week 17 against the 49ers.

Status up in the air for Week 16

White (ankle) is considered questionable for Saturday's game against the Steelers, Paul Gutierrez of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: White opened Week 16 as a non-participant during practice due to an ankle injury, though it's unclear when or how this issue first arose. The rookie running back then logged back-to-back limited sessions Wednesday and Thursday, so he'll still have a chance to play against Pittsburgh despite this slightly short week to recover. White has yet to log more than three carries in a game this season, though his potential absence would likely vault Brandon Bolden into the Raiders' No. 3 running back role.

Sits out practice with ankle injury

White was listed as a non-participant on Tuesday's estimated practice report due to an ankle injury.

Analysis: White played only eight total snaps in Sunday's 30-24 win over the Patriots, but his inclusion on the Raiders' first Week 16 injury report suggests he got hurt at some point during his limited time on the field. Even if White moves past the injury ahead of Saturday's game at Pittsburgh, he'll be in store for only a small role behind lead back Josh Jacobs.

Dec 20, 2022 1:16 PM EST


Rushes once in win

White rushed once for four yards in Sunday's 30-24 win over the Patriots.

Analysis: White has yet to log more than five offensive snaps in a single contest this year, continuing to spend his rookie campaign buried behind bell cow Josh Jacobs and pass-down specialist Ameer Abdullah. Since Week 13, White has taken six carries for just 19 yards in three games.

Dec 20, 2022 6:33 AM EST


Season-high three carries in loss

White rushed three times for nine yards in Thursday's 17-16 loss to the Rams.

Analysis: White's three carries marked a season high, though he logged only three offensive snaps behind starter Josh Jacobs (finger) and Ameer Abdullah on Thursday. Jacobs' initial X-rays on his injured pinkie finger returned negative, but it could be something to continue monitoring ahead of the Raiders' upcoming tilt against New England.

Dec 12, 2022 6:52 AM EST


Two carries Sunday

White rushed twice for six yards in Sunday's 27-20 win over the Chargers.

Analysis: White logged only four offensive snaps despite starter Josh Jacobs having nursed a left calf strain all week, and the latter rushed for 144 yards and a score on 26 carries Sunday. White's role out of the Raiders' backfield figures to remain limited Thursday against the Rams with Jacobs seemingly at full strength.

Dec 5, 2022 9:44 AM EST


Produces two first-down runs in win

White rushed for 28 yards on two carries in Sunday's 40-34 overtime win over the Seahawks.

Analysis: White toted the rock twice despite appearing on just three of the Raiders' 77 offensive plays, and the rookie's rush attempts were successful with carries of 11 and 17 yards to set up a pair of first downs in the third quarter. Starter Josh Jacobs still owns the backfield, however, erupting for 303 total yards and two touchdowns on 39 touches. Expect White to remain behind Jacobs and Ameer Abdullah in the pecking order at running back when Las Vegas hosts the Chargers in Week 13.

Nov 28, 2022 12:10 PM EST


Back in the mix Sunday

White is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Seahawks.

Analysis: White, who was inactive last weekend, is back in action Sunday, while Brittain Brown will sit this one out. Also in the team's backfield mix in Week 12 are starter Josh Jacobs, Ameer Abdullah and Brandon Bolden.

Nov 27, 2022 11:53 AM EST


Inactive Sunday

White is inactive for Sunday's game against the Broncos.

Analysis: With White inactive, Ameer Abdullah,Brandon Bolden and Brittain Brown are the Raiders' available backfield option Sunday behind starter Josh Jacobs.

Nov 20, 2022 12:02 PM EST


Two touches in loss to Indy

White lost one yard on two carries in Sunday's 25-20 loss to the Colts.

Analysis: White's playing time remains severely limited behind workhorse Josh Jacobs, and the former has produced only 19 yards on eight carries through nine games to begin his rookie campaign. White has logged just 13 total offensive snaps in four games since the Raiders' bye week.

Nov 15, 2022 4:56 AM EST


Negative yardage in loss

White lost a yard on his only carry during Sunday's 27-20 loss to the Jaguars.

Analysis: White's lone carry came on his only offensive snap of the day, while starter Josh Jacobs finished the contest with 20 touches for 87 total yards. Ameer Abdullah continues to work behind Jacobs on passing downs, leaving very little opportunity for White to see the field.

Nov 7, 2022 7:29 AM EST


Plays five offensive snaps Sunday

White took his only carry for two yards in Sunday's 38-20 win over the Texans.

Analysis: White logged a season-high five offensive snaps in the contest, but starter Josh Jacobs retained the bell cow role out of the Raiders' backfield with 20 carries for 143 yards and three touchdowns. Expect Jacobs to continue handling a significant share of the work against the Saints in Week 8, while White struggles to gain relevance in most fantasy formats.

Oct 24, 2022 8:44 AM EST


Barely sees field in Week 5 loss

White lost seven yards on his only carry during Monday's 30-29 loss to the Chiefs.

Analysis: White's only touch of the entire contest came on a seven-yard loss early in the second quarter, and he's now played three or less offensive snaps in all five games to start his rookie campaign. Starter Josh Jacobs retained his workhorse role out of the Raiders' backfield Monday, producing 193 yards from scrimmage and a touchdown on 26 touches. White heads into the team's bye week with just four carries for 19 yards this season.

Oct 11, 2022 8:07 AM EST


Two carries in win

White took two carries for 24 yards in Sunday's 32-23 win over the Broncos.

Analysis: White's role behind starter Josh Jacobs remains extremely limited as the rookie played only three offensive snaps in the Raiders' maiden victory, while Jacobs exploded for 175 total yards and two touchdowns on 33 touches. White figures to provide insurance behind Jacobs again Week 5 in another divisional matchup against the Chiefs.

Oct 3, 2022 7:56 AM EST


No offensive snaps in Week 3

White didn't play any offensive snaps in Sunday's 24-22 loss to the Titans.

Analysis: White didn't touch the ball, and his usage was limited to nine snaps on special teams. The rookie running back isn't part of Vegas' backfield equation at the moment, as coach Josh McDaniels is content with a mix of veterans Josh Jacobs and Brandon Bolden in the backfield.

Sep 26, 2022 11:59 AM EST


One carry in loss

White took his only carry for two yards in Sunday's overtime loss to the Cardinals.

Analysis: The Raiders built a commanding 20-point lead ahead of halftime and subsequently leaned on starter Josh Jacobs out of the backfield, as he finished the contest with 19 carries for 69 yards while White earned just one touch in six offensive snaps. Ameer Abdullah mixed in on passing downs with Brandon Bolden (hamstring) inactive, further limiting White's role.
