While we may not be able to blame a broken hand on age or workload, the end result is the same: he missed last week's game.

It appears he also will sit out Sunday's tilt with the New England Patriots.

"The #Raiders are not expecting to have RB Maurice Jones-Drew (hand) today vs. #Patriots, I’m told. Will be Darren McFadden & Latavius Murray," tweeted NFL.com's Ian Rapoport.

He bulked up his upper-body strength during the summer but has shed weight since.

“At one point in the summer I weighed about 230 pounds. That’s not what I wanted to be during the season – you don’t need that weight wearing on (your) knees,” Taylor said. “Now I’m about 215 – still strong, but way more ready to jump.”
