McFadden still not practicing, likely won’t play Sunday

By Steve Corkran
Thursday, December 8th, 2011 at 10:48 am in Oakland Raiders.

Running back Darren McFadden is not practicing once again, which increases the odds against his playing Sunday against the Green Bay Packers.
The Raiders have one more practice before they board a plane for Green Bay. It’s almost inconceivable to envision McFadden playing Sunday, even if he is able to practice Friday.
He has not performed any football-related activities since he suffered a mid-foot sprain Oct. 23, early in a game against the Kansas City Chiefs.
At this point, it’s on to targeting the Detroit Lions as the possible return for McFadden.
That also appears to be the case for wide receivers Jacoby Ford (foot) and Denarius Moore (foot), both of whom have not practiced for several weeks.
Fortunately for the Raiders, wide receiver Chaz Schilens returned to practice today, four days after he suffered a foot injury against the Miami Dolphins.
As of now, it appears as if the Raiders will enter the Packers game with Schilens and Darrius Heyward-Bey as the starting receivers, with only Louis Murphy and T.J. Houshmandzadeh as the backups.
Running back Taiwan Jones (hamstring) also is out of practice once again. He sounded hopeful about returning this week, given he was at about “75-80 percent” in his agility drills Monday.
So, Michael Bush figures to get the lion’s share of the workload running the ball for the sixth straight game, with Marcel Reece and Rock Cartwright on call, if needed, to lighten the load.
Defensive tackle John Henderson returned to practice despite a sore knee. He appeared to be limping around during the drills but he said he intends to play Sunday.
Cornerback Chris Johnson rejoined his teammates only three days after his sister Jennifer was shot and killed and his mother Della was wounded by a 46-year-old man in Texas.
Johnson’s mother is expected to survive, according to police who responded to the call.
Bryan McCann was fielding kicks at practice in case Ford isn’t able to make it back. Cartwright and Tyvon Branch are other candidates to handle kick-return duites.

    Another fun fact:

    Al Davis drafted Marinovich over Brett Favre.

    Oh, one more fun fat: Al Davis never even released Marinovich. He was banned from the league for failing his 3rd drug test. He would have played for the Raiders all the way up till Al died this season, where then Hue Jackson would have shot him.

  • Lowdown_in_Beijing

    Seymour,

    Amen and Amen!

    Getting the feeling that there is NO gameplan.

    After the rush of trick plays died down, Raiders Offense seems flat.

    3rd and 9, Shotgun formation with Bush, here comes another draw.

    Reminds me of when Gruden struggled to close games out for us.

    Hue can build the Bully all he wants, just let Saunders call the plays.

  • Mistic1 Tha Supavillain

    sorry but this game boils down to carson and if he can keep pace with rodgers. The pack has a defense that is stout in the middle vs the run, you have to attck the edges, but bush isnt quick enough for that. plus the pack im sure has watched the offense flounder the last few eeks vs 8 man fronts, so expect them to load up on early downs then bring the heat on passing downs.

    If palmer turns the ball over or misses wide open guys like he has the last couple of weeks we will lose by 2 tds
