Raiders vs Cowboys Tuesday injury report: Mychal Rivera, Mike Jenkins, Darren McFadden expected to play

The Raiders and Cowboys both had their second practices of their short week in preparation for their Thanksgiving day game Thursday. While there were no changes to the practice status of any of the players, Dennis Allen said at least three limited practice participants are expected to play.

"Mychal Rivera passed all of his concussion protocol tests so he should be good to go for the game," said Allen. "Mike Jenkins really passed this morning. There's one more little step but he should be cleared for that game also."

Rivera and Jenkins were both knocked out of the Raiders' week 12 loss to the Titans with concussions. Rivera's was a hard blow to the head by Titans' safety Michael Griffin which has yielded Griffin a one-game suspension.

Darren McFadden is also expected back. He has been out since week 7 with a strained hamstring.

"Most of what we've see out of Darren has been with the trainers," said Allen. "He had a good workout the other day. Today he looked good. Again, we weren't full speed in everything that we did today but everything that we've seen up to this point says that he looks good to be able to go for this weekend."

The only actual change was Menelik Watson was not practicing but that was not injury related. He was out with an illness.
