Raiders RB Darren McFadden limited in practices, should be OK
Darren McFadden ? Injured? You don't say.
The Raiders' star running back is on the injury report this week because of a shoulder problem, and he was limited in practice on both Wednesday and Thursday. Head coach Dennis Allen tried to calm the nerves when he said Thursday that McFadden's shoulder injury is only a bruise.
"That really hasn't been a factor," Allen said of McFadden's shoulder.
Yeah, so don't worry about McFadden this week. He'll be ready to roll Sunday against the Broncos. McFadden has played seven career games versus Denver and has averaged 106 yards from scrimmage per game. Also, six of his 21 touchdowns have come against the Broncos. Don't stress if you see McFadden being held back a bit in practice; you're starting him with a boatload of confidence in Week 4.
