Darren McFadden, Mike Goodson return to practice

Both Darren McFadden and Mike Goodson were lost with high ankle sprains in the same game this season. Now they both have returned to practiced simultaneously as well.

It was the week nine home game versus the Buccaneers. McFadden suffered the injury very early on. He tried to continue but it was clear he could not. Goodson came in the game to replace him and on just his second carry, he too suffered a high ankle sprain.

Raiders head coach Dennis Allen said earlier this week that he hoped to have McFadden, Goodson, and Richard Seymour back at practice by Wednesday. He saw his hopes come to fruition with two of them as McFadden and Goodson took the practice field for the first time in three weeks. Seymour is still not practicing with his hamstring and knee injury.

This doesn't automatically mean either or both will suit up on Sunday when the Raiders host the Browns. In most cases this season, when a player is coming back from a few weeks out due to injury, they don't play the first week they return.

The Raiders aren't desperate for their services at the moment. Marcel Reece has been playing better than McFadden had at just about any point this season. McFadden surpassed 100 yards twice this season but last time he did it, he still had just a 3.8 yards per carry average.

Reece on the other hand is boasting a 4.69 yards per carry average since taking over the duties three weeks ago. Goodson has a stellar yards per carry average of 6.5 but he rarely touches the ball (just 17 attempts this season).

Still not practicing, along with Seymour was defensive end Jack Crawford (toe).

The Raiders added undrafted rookie linebacker Jerrell Harris to the practice squad. Harris played at Alabama with Rolando McClain in 2008 and 2009. He was signed as an undrafted free agent by the Falcons this offseason and also spent time on the practice squads for the Jaguars and Patriots.
