The status of Darren McFadden and Stefen Wisniewski is in doubt for Sunday's game. Both starters have been missing from Raiders practice all week. McFadden went down with a hamstring injury in last Sunday's loss to the Redskins. Wisniewski finished the game but suffered a sprained knee.

Replacing McFadden was Rashad Jennings who led the team in rushing and receiving in the game. He will replace him again this week with Jeremy Stewart as the first off the bench. Marcel Reece was also injured in Sunday's game. He suffered a sprained knee but has practiced all this week and could see some carries as well.

Replacing Wisniewski at center on Wednesday and Thursday was undrafted rookie Lamar Mady but Friday it was Andre Gurode stepping in at center with Mady moving to left guard.

The loss of Wisniewski is more likely to be felt than the loss of McFadden as the chemistry between quarterback and center is important. Jennings has proven a reliable replacement for McFadden.
