Darren McFadden Injury Update: Oakland Raiders RB Misses Friday Practice

It appears as though the Oakland Raiders will be without the services of running back Darren McFadden for Sunday's game against the Denver Broncos. Steve Corkran of the Contra Costa Times reports that McFadden missed Friday's practice, his sixth straight. McFadden hurt his foot during a 28-0 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs two weeks ago.

While the Denver Broncos likely won't face the running back who has ripped them apart over the last two years, Michael Bush and Taiwan Jones will lead the way. Bush has had 62 carries for 259 yards in six career games against the Broncos. Those numbers should increase greatly since he will likely start in place of McFadden on Sunday. Jones has been lightly used this season, but expect his five carries for 30 yards to also increase significantly.
