Raiders | Darren McFadden likely to miss Week 5

Oakland Raiders RB Darren McFadden (hamstring) isn't likely to play during Week 5, reports Jerry McDonald, of ANG Newspapers. Head coach Tom Cable has been vague about McFadden's playing status, but it isn't likely the team would risk further injury by throwing him back on the field so quickly. Cable said the injury isn't as significant as the hamstring injury McFadden suffered during the preseason. "We expect the turnaround to be much shorter, so we'll see," Cable said. McFadden was working with heavy ropes at one point during warm-ups and drills Wednesday, Oct. 6. As reported, he did not take part in practice.
