Running back Darren McFadden was on an adjoining field with a member of the athletic training staff Friday, doing some light jogging and agility work.
Wearing an elastic brace on his right knee, ostensibly the one which was “cleaned up” through arthroscopic surgery, it was the first time McFadden has been on the field during the time when media members are present.
Meanwhile, Louis Murphy, who didn’t complete practice because of a hip injury Thursday, was going through drillwork gingerly and at halfspeed with the wide receivers. Cornerback Chris Johnson, who failed to complete practice because of a groin injury, was putting on his helmet and going through a tip drill as the media window concluded.
Tight end Tony Stewart was a specatator with a chest injury, while quarterback Bruce Gradkowski, who missed the last two practices with a stomach virus, was on the field and appeared to be good to go.
