Nov 28, 2013; Arlington, TX, USA; Oakland Raiders running back Rashad Jennings (27) runs with the ball against the Dallas Cowboys during a NFL football game on Thanksgiving at AT

Oakland Raiders running back Rashad Jennings suffered a concussion in Thursday’s loss to the  Dallas Cowboys. Jennings was concussed on Oakland’s final drive of Thanksgiving, but because the Raiders’ next game isn’t until December 8, it may not end up costing him any time as he looks to continue his hot-streak

Jennings rushed 17 times for 35 yards and two touchdowns, and caught an eight-yard pass. The incumbent Darren McFadden rushed only five times for 13 yards in the loss.

The Kansas City defense collapsed this past week vs the Sand Diego Chargers, allowing a season-high 41 points, and 28 of those came in the second-half. But most of those points came when linebackers Justin Houston and Tamba Hali in the first-half. Houston won’t need surgery on his dislocated elbow, but did suffer torn muscles that will knock him out of action for 2-3 weeks. Hali is expected to play this week vs the Denver Broncos.
