Sept. 22, update — Raiders head coach Josh McDaniels said that Meyers is “good to go” and will play against the Steelers this weekend.

Sept. 21, update — Meyers was able to get in a full practice on Thursday, which should mean he has been cleared from his concussion and will play on Sunday night against the Steelers.

Sept. 20, update — Coach Josh McDaniels told reporters that Meyers would be out on the practice field Wednesday, per Paul Gutierrez. Meyers appears to be progressing through concussion protocol and looks poised to return this week as long as he continues to improve.

Las Vegas Raiders Jakobi Meyers is “headed in the right direction” ahead of Week 3, per head coach Josh McDaniels. Meyers is going through concussion protocol after sustaining a head injury in Week 1. He sat out of the Raiders’ Week 2 loss to the Bills, but could be cleared for Week 3 against the Steelers.

Meyers caught two touchdowns against the Broncos before the Week 1 injury. The Raiders face the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 3.

Fantasy football implications for Week 3

Wide receiver Davante Adams took a hard hit that put him on the sidelines in Week 2, but is “good,” per McDaniels. Adams will likely see plenty of action in Week 3. Hunter Renfrow and Tre Tucker will also see an uptick in fantasy points, as will tight end Austin Hooper if Meyers has to sit out again. If he can go, he will hope to pick up where he left off in Week 1 and has fantasy value.
