Raiders RBs Darren McFadden, Rashad Jennings practice Wednesday
Raiders running back Rashad Jennings practiced Wednesday despite suffering a hamstring injury in Week 5. However, Jennings' playing ability will mean little if Darren McFadden came make it back this week from his own hamstring issue. McFadden went through individual drills Wednesday. You can watch a short video of McFadden on the field today in the link below.
Expect another update on McFadden on Thursday. It would make sense for the Raiders to be cautious with their oft-injured star with their bye coming next week. But this is definitely progress. If neither player can go, Marcel Reece would be a sneaky flex play, especially in PPR leagues. No matter who is carrying the rock for Oakland, they will have a tough matchup in front of them -- the 5-0 Chiefs in Kansas City. The Chiefs have allowed the eighth-fewest fantasy points to running backs this season.
