McFadden, Green out


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 . . .

    McFadden injured again. We should have drafted Ryan Clady as John Madden suggested.

    green sucks anyway

    Its no loss at all.
    McFumble is close to being a bust and is a college back.
    Fargas is a much better NFL back

    We may see that running game revamped with the hard running of fargas and bush.

    barry sanders couldn’t run well behind our oline right now! get real people.I think Dmac will work out fine, maybe he’s a 10-15 carries per game RB/slot reciever. Bush is the bruiser that should get a new contract and 20-25 carries per game. raider fan for life.
