Tue, 04 Dec 2012 14:28:29 -0800
Oakland Raiders T Khalif Barnes (triceps), DE Jack Crawford (toe), WR Juron Criner (shoulder), DB Matt Giordano (concussion), RB Taiwan Jones (ankle), SS Michael Mitchell (concussion), TE Brandon Myers (shoulder) and FB Marcel Reece (knee, quadriceps) all were limited in practice Thursday, Dec. 4.

Oakland Raiders RB Taiwan Jones (ankle) was listed as a limited participant in practice Friday, Nov. 30, while FB Marcel Reece (hamstring, quadriceps) went through a full practice session. Each back is listed as probable for the Week 13 game against the Cleveland Browns.
Fantasy Tip: Both players, especially Reece, will take a big hit in fantasy appeal if Darren McFadden (ankle) is able to play. McFadden is listed as questionable, or officially has a 50-50 chance of suiting up. Mike Goodson (ankle) is also on the road to recovery, further decreasing the values of Jones and Reece.
