Raiders vs Cowboys Monday injury report: Darren McFadden returns, Mychal Rivera practices

New, comments
Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

It's a quick turnover this week. No rest for the weary as the Raiders and Cowboys both practiced Monday night in preparation for their Thursday match-up this week. But even in the short week, there were some positive signs among those at practice.

Darren McFadden was back at practice for the first time since he left week 7 with a hamstring injury. His status is still uncertain for Thursday's game but he said he hopes to play.

Also at practice were Mychal Rivera and Mike Jenkins who both left Sunday's game with concussions. They passed the first round of test in the concussion protocol and were limited in practice.

Tyvon Branch ran along the sideline and Dennis Allen said he is close to returning but he did not practice with his teammates.

For those looking for Jared Veldheer, he is not officially activated yet so though he practiced, he would not appear on the injury report. He is expected to play Thursday.

The Cowboys are missing two solid starters in ILB Sean Lee and CB Morris Claiborne. It is likely they will be without both players Thursday.
