  • Raiders' Brandon Bolden: Handles just 26 touches in 2022

    Bolden did not play an offensive snap in the Raiders' Week 18 loss to the Chiefs, finishing his 2022 season with 17 carries for 66 yards to go along with nine catches on as many targets for 57 yards and a score.

    Bolden remained buried on the depth chart at running back behind starter Josh Jacobs, Ameer Abdullah and even Zamir White at times throughout the 2022 campaign, but the unit could look entirely different with Jacobs and Abdullah hitting free agency this offseason. Bolden will turn 33 years old in late January, however, so the Raiders might continue to view him as more of a special teamer than a backfield solution at this stage of his career.

  • Raiders' Brandon Bolden: Season-high eight carries in loss

    Bolden took eight carries for 32 yards in Sunday's 37-34 overtime loss to the 49ers.

    Fellow reserve running back Zamir White (ankle) was inactive Sunday, so Bolden's usage spiked against the Niners when starter Josh Jacobs briefly exited the contest in the first half due to a minor hip injury. Bolden hadn't been dealt more than one carry in a single game since Week 3, but he could serve as Jacobs' primary backup again Week 18 against the Chiefs if White remains sidelined.

  • Raiders' Brandon Bolden: Sheds injury designation

    Bolden (calf) practiced in full Wednesday, Anthony Galaviz of The Fresno Bee reports.

    Bolden was limited on Monday's estimated practice report, but he's dropped his questionable injury tag and should be ready to go Thursday against the Rams. With Josh Jacobs (quad/calf) still limited and considered questionable for the game, it's possible Bolden could be looking at an increased workload for the contest.

  • Raiders' Brandon Bolden: Considered limited Monday

    Bolden (calf) was listed as a limited participant in Monday's estimated practice report, Vincent Bonsignore of the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports.

    Bolden was questionable going into Sunday's game against the Chargers with the same injury, but he ultimately suited up and played. With the Raiders returning to action Thursday against the Rams, it's possible his limited estimate is representative of a cautious approach by the team, as opposed to him having aggravated the injury. His practice status will be worth monitoring in the days ahead though, especially with Ameer Abdullah (hamstring) and Josh Jacobs (quad/calf) also listed as limited participants Monday.

  • Raiders' Brandon Bolden: Available Week 13

    Bolden (calf) has been deemed active for Sunday's game against the Chargers.

    Bolden was forced out with a calf injury during the Raiders' Week 12 overtime victory versus the Seahawks, and he was limited in each practice leading up to Sunday's game. However, the third-string running back will still suit up for this important divisional matchup against Las Vegas. Bolden has primarily filled in on special teams over the last six games, and he should continue to see limited offensive snaps behind Ameer Abdullah, with Josh Jacobs (calf) also deemed active Week 13.

  • Raiders' Brandon Bolden: Iffy for Week 13

    Bolden (calf) is questionable for Sunday's matchup against the Chargers, Anthony Galaviz of The Fresno Bee reports.

    Bolden was limited throughout Week 13 prep due to a calf injury and is considered questionable for Sunday. The backup running back has played primarily on special teams this season, so his potential absence shouldn't impact the Raiders offense. However, Josh Jacobs (calf) is also questionable, so if both aforementioned players are sidelined, Zamir White and Ameer Abdullah would likely operate as Las Vegas' top two backs against Los Angeles.

  • Raiders' Brandon Bolden: Limited Wednesday

    Bolden (calf) was listed as a limited participant during the Raiders' walkthrough Wednesday, Rachel Gossen of the team's official site reports.

    Bolden was forced out early with a calf injury during Sunday's win over the Seahawks, and it's unclear if he was able to return to this contest. While the nature of this issue is still unknown, the 32-year-old running back will now have two more practices to improve his status before this Sunday's game against the Chargers. Bolden has recorded two rushes for 10 yards and five receptions (on five targets) for 32 yards while almost exclusively playing on special teams since Week 4, so he'll likely continue to play a limited offensive role when healthy.

  • Raiders' Brandon Bolden: Exits with injury Sunday

    Bolden (calf) is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Seahawks.

    Bolden did not log a statistic before exiting at some point during the first half Sunday. While the nature of this issue is still unclear, his absence should leave Zamir White to take on a bigger role behind top running backs Josh Jacobs and Ameer Abdullah.

  • Raiders' Brandon Bolden: Targeted once in win

    Bolden caught his only target for four yards in Sunday's 22-16 overtime win over the Broncos.

    Bolden's lone reception came in the first quarter, but he ultimately logged just three offensive snaps while fellow running back Ameer Abdullah saw four targets out of the Raiders' backfield behind Josh Jacobs. Bolden figures to remain limited to a special-teams role again Week 12 versus the Seahawks.

  • Raiders' Brandon Bolden: Falls out of game plan Week 10

    Bolden logged all 17 of his snaps on special teams in Sunday's 25-20 loss to the Colts.

    For only the second time in his eight appearances on the season, Bolden didn't pick up a snap on offense, as the Raiders had all of Josh Jacobs, Ameer Abdullah, Zamir White and Jakob Johnson work out of the backfield ahead of him. Bolden's status as a core special teams contributor should be enough to keep him active on game days moving forward, but he doesn't look like he'll have a role as a change-of-pace back unless one of Jacobs or Abdullah is sidelined.

  • Raiders' Brandon Bolden: Dealt one carry in loss

    Bolden took his only carry for five yards in Sunday's 27-20 loss to the Jaguars.

    Bolden was not targeted in the passing game, while fellow backup Ameer Abdullah caught one of three targets for eight yards. The former has logged just five total offensive snaps in three contests since the Raiders' bye in Week 6, so Bolden carries very little fantasy appeal into Las Vegas' upcoming tilt against the Colts.

  • Raiders' Brandon Bolden: Four touches in Monday's loss

    Bolden took his lone carry for five yards and caught all three of his targets for 29 yards in Monday's 30-29 loss to the Chiefs.

    Bolden's 34 yards from scrimmage were a season high, but he played just 10 of 64 offensive snaps while workhorse Josh Jacobs handled 21 carries for 154 yards and a touchdown to go along with five catches on as many targets for 39 receiving yards. Following the team's upcoming bye, Bolden's role figures to remain limited against the Texans in Week 7, especially if the Raiders manage to build an early lead.
