Running back Darren McFadden will be out two to four weeks and will undergo surgery Tuesday morning for a meniscus tear, coach Tom Cable said.
Also out will be right tackle Cornell Green will be out at least two weeks with a calf strain and could be out as long as a month.
Cable said the running back carries would be divided between Justin Fargas and Michael Bush but doesn’t have a concrete plan as to who will start or the division of carries. Options for Green’s position, Cable said, include guard/tackle Erik Pears and “working on getting Khalif Barnes” retrained.
More to come later, including Cable’s defiant confidence with regard to the Napa assault investigation and his support for quarterback JaMarcus Russell . . .
