Raiders | Will not 'baby' Darren McFadden
Oakland Raiders head coach Dennis Allen said RB Darren McFadden is healthy entering the season and in no way will the team 'baby' him in order to ensure the running back stays injury-free. McFadden has missed 19 of a possible 64 games during his four-year pro career, missing at least three games in each season. The bulk of those games lost to injury came due to a Lisfranc foot injury during the second half of last season. "He's 100 percent," Allen said of McFadden. "I think the thing that you look at is as a running back, I mean, it's a tough position. They take some shots and that's part of football. We can't baby him. We can't protect him. We got to go out there and play football and give him an opportunity to carry the ball, and we hope that he's able to stay healthy."
