04:59 PM ET 11.08 | Taiwan Jones will make his starting debut for the Oakland Raiders this week. The Raiders will lean on the second-year running back this week against the Baltimore Ravens with Darren McFadden and Mike Goodson both expected to be sidelined with high ankle sprains. Jones carried the ball 16 times for 73 yards as a rookie in 2011. This season, Jones has been used very sparingly, getting just one carry. Injuries have derailed a fast start to Jones' NFL career, from a hamstring issue to sore ribs to a bum knee.
