ALAMEDA — The Raiders’ two-headed monster at running back didn’t make it through Game 1 before suffering its first set-back.
Maurice Jones-Drew injured his hand in Sunday’s 19-14 loss to the Jets and underwent a procedure to repair the injury, a source told Comcast SportsNet’s Fallon Smith.
“He’s day-to-day,” head coach Dennis Allen said on Wednesday. “So we’ll see whenever he’s available and ready to go.
The nine-year veteran was not at practice on Wednesday, but Jones-Drew isn’t expected to miss much time — if any — according to a source with knowledge of the situation.
"It’s next-man-up philosophy," Allen said. "That happens in football. We’ll see where we’re at — when and if he’s able to practice — and we’ll kind of go from there.”
Jones-Drew remained in the game after the injury, and turned in his lone productive run — a 12-yard gain — with just over two minutes remaining.
The 29-year-old rushed nine times for 11 total yards in his debut with the Raiders after signing a three-year, $7.5 million contract with Oakland this offseason. He also caught two passes for 12 yards.
Oakland's other feature back, Darren McFadden, rushed four times for 15 yards and caught one pass for six yards.
As a team, the Raiders totaled just 25 rushing yards on 15 carries.
