Crowell, 26, signed a one-year deal with the Raiders this offseason. He was expected to split carries with recently drafted rookie, Josh Jacobs, but now Jacobs will have to carry more of the workload at the position.
The Raiders signed Crowell after he played the first five seasons of his career with the Browns and Jets. In Cleveland, he started his career and neared 1,000 yards in his last two seasons with the team. For New York last season, Crowell played in 13 games with 685 rushing yards.
He has 3,803 career rushing yards with a 4.3 yards per carry average.
