JonesTaiwan Jones has mostly been a special teams player for the Raiders in the last couple of years, but he did come to Oakland with designs on playing a role on the offense as well.

Those hopes appeared to be dashed in the offseason when the Raiders decided to move Jones from running back to cornerback, but there might be a revival in the works. Steve Corkran of the Bay Area News Group reports that Jones was working at running back for the Raiders during Wednesday’s practice.

Part of the reason for that might be that Darren McFadden wasn’t working at any position.
