   Taiwan Jones is being tried out at running back again by the Raiders after Darren McFadden's latest injury. 

(Associated Press)ALAMEDA — Taiwan Jones is working at running back in practice Wednesday for the first time since last season. 

Jones, who entered the league in 2011 as a running back, was converted to cornerback after last season by coach Dennis Allen. But the Raiders need depth at running back. 

Although Rashad Jennings was at practice Wednesday, Darren McFadden was out with an ankle injury.
