Report: Darren McFadden's Foot Shows No Structural Damage

Wednesday October 26th, 2011

Tests revealed Raiders starting running back Darren McFadden has no structural damage in his sprained foot, according to McFadden suffered the sprain in Oakland’s 28-0 loss against the Chiefs this past Sunday.

The timing of the injury comes as the Raiders have their bye-week. Their next game is scheduled for Nov. 6 against the Broncos, for which McFadden is currently listed as questionable.

McFadden reportedly wore a walking boot and was also on crutches on Monday, to alleviate any pressure on the sprained foot. He is not expected to practice, leading up to Week 9. Raiders coach Hue Jackson tells reporters, the Raiders will “just move forward and see exactly where he is.”
