Oakland Raiders head coach Dennis Allen said he believes RB Darren McFadden can carry the football 25-30 times a game; however, Allen added a team needs a tandem to carry the load. "The running back position in this league, I think you have the ability to use different people. Because those runners take such a pounding on a play-in and play-out basis," Allen said. "Does (McFadden) have the ability to be the lead back? Absolutely and he will be. But we're going to have to find ways to spell him some, too."
