Raiders' Theo Riddick (illness) ruled out for Week 9

Las Vegas Raiders running back Theo Riddick will not play Sunday in the team's Week 9 game against the Los Angeles Chargers.

What It Means:

Riddick is dealing with an illness - perhaps the same one that fellow rusher Josh Jacobs is dealing with - and was added to the injury report late in the week. He won't be able to go, which means that Jalen Richard and Devontae Booker are the only guys available behind Jacobs.

The Chargers have been pretty average against opposing ground games so far this season, ranking 17th in the NFL in adjusted net expected points allowed per pass play.
