Josh Tough Childhood

Josh faced tough times growing up. He deals with financial struggles and homelessness. 

Football became essential to Josh, which gave him a purpose and stability, especially during tough times like homelessness. 

Even though many college recruiters ignored him, his dream school, Alabama, saw his talent and gave him a scholarship.

Getting that opportunity was like a dream come true for Josh, showing how he went from being homeless to becoming a first-round pick in the NFL draft. 

Even though Josh was homeless for a while, he used that as motivation to work hard and never get too comfortable. 

After doing well in his junior season at Alabama, he was seen as the best running back in the NFL Draft

Josh wanted to change his family's struggles and make things better for them. 

Josh Won’t Be Playing The Upcoming Game

Josh won’t be playing in the upcoming game for the Las Vegas Raider due to a quad injury and illness. 

This will be his second successive game on the sidelines. 

The Raiders had a big win in the last game without him, but it might be challenging to repeat that against the Kansas City Chiefs

Before getting injured, Josh was a crucial player in the Raiders' rushing game. 

The team will likely rely on a committee of running backs, including Zamir White, Ameer Abdullah, and Brandon Bolden, to fill the gap in his absence. kids
