Raiders | No timetable for Darren McFadden
Mon, 30 Sep 2013 15:36:25 -0700
Updating previous reports, Oakland Raiders head coach Dennis Allen refuses to say when the team might have RB Darren McFadden (hamstring) back, but he doesn't think the injury is very serious. "I wouldn't get into characterizing whether it's minor, major," Allen said. "He's got a hamstring (strain). I don't expect him to be out a long time but we'll see how he responds. I mean, it's one day after a game."
We already knew McFadden was injury-prone, so this comes as no surprise. You'll have to monitor his status this week before making the call as to whether to keep him in your starting lineup. Marcel Reece (knee) and Rashad Jennings could split the load if DMC doesn't play this weekend. Jennings is a must acquire off the waiver wire if you own McFadden or Reece.
