Darren McFadden getting injured is nothing new. It’s happened so often during his brief NFL career that you can set your watch to it.
What is new on the McFadden injury front is his pending return slated for this Wednesday’s practice if all goes well between now and then.
Run DMC has missed the last three weeks with an ankle sprain. Not that the Raiders were doing all that well with a healthy McFadden but in his absence the wheels have definitely come off. Greg Knapp’s conservative and predictable offense never took advantage of McFadden at full strength so asking him to do so while Oakland’s most dynamic player is on the mend might be asking four-much.
None the less getting McFadden back is welcomed. If there is anything to salvage from this season it will be done so with the help of McFadden’s talents.
