Darren McFadden Has A Fractured Orbital: Expected To Miss Two Weeks

Well, Raider Nation, it looks like our Dynamic duo of Jacoby Ford and Darren McFadden will be on the shelf for a while. While Jacoby has been in a cast all week, Darren McFadden was out of practice today with what Oakland Raider Coach, Hue Jackson, called a "Small, slight fracture of the orbital".

The good news is that I saw him after practice yesterday and he looked fine. His eye was in it's socket and he didn't appear to have double vision.

I think that we will know the severity over the next few days because the severity could cause the healing process to take anything from ice and rest to inserting a titanium plate into the eye socket to increase stability in the eye socket.

Losing Darren McFadden would be a huge blow to this offense which is already missing Jacoby Ford and rookie Taiwan Jones due to injury and is still awaiting the arrival of Michael Bush.

We will have more on this as the story continues.
