Darren McFadden has new injury, timetable for return uncertain

Bob Donnan-USA TODAY Sports

Raiders running back Darren McFadden was not at practice on Wednesday. Following practice, head coach Dennis Allen revealed McFadden did not re-injure his hamstring strain for what would have been the second time this season. McFadden has a new injury altogether.

"It's an ankle." Said Allen of McFadden's injury. "He actually injured the ankle in the game the other day. It's more than we initially had thought. So, he wasn't able to go today. Hopefully we'll be able to get him out there soon but I don't know."

Last week was the first game back for McFadden since he left the team's week 8 game against the Eagles after re-aggravating his hamstring strain that had him miss week 5 as well.

He didn't start against the Cowboys Thursday but was subbed in for Rashad Jennings a few times in the game. Jennings went out with a concussion on the team's final drive and McFadden entered to replace him. All told, he carried the ball just five times for 13 yards. And just like that, he is injured again.

Luckily Jennings is back practicing from his concussion or McFadden's loss would be somewhat significant. As it stands, it really isn't. Just another injury to the oft injured, rarely reliable former top pick.
