Jackson says McFadden does not need surgery

Raiders coach Hue Jackson said you can call running back Darren McFadden’s right foot injury a midfoot sprain, a Lisfranc injury or whatever else you want, but he is certain that McFadden “does not need surgery.”
Jackson also said that he still doesn’t have any idea when McFadden will be cleared to return to action. He is confident that McFadden won’t be out for the rest of the season.
Houston Texans quarterback Matt Schaub was placed on injured reserve last last month with a lisfranc injury, and he is out for the season.
“I’ve been told that he has a midfoot sprain, which is just like a Lisfranc sprain, however you see that,” Jackson said. “It’s the same. It’s really one and the same. And I know one can require – both can require surgery. Both can require you to be out several, several weeks. So, they’re all in that same family.
“I just think how you describe it, based on one when you say Lisfranc, really means surgical. You got to go in and fix it right away in order to get it to heal properly. That’s why when people hear that term, everybody goes, ‘Oh, my gosh, that’s what he has.’ No, he does not need surgery. That much I do know. You guys can write that. Darren McFadden does not need surgery.”

    It’s not quite time to pull the rug out from under Hue yet. He needs help. Better coaches and a good GM would be a start. Palmer is the QB of the forseeable future. he deserves to the benifit of a full training camp.Win or lose there should be no off seson for this team.

    Did it, though? There have been a lot of blackouts since they returned, even in the good years. And a lot of the sellouts have been fabricated through gimmicks, like 2-for-1 tickets, or the team buying up the empty seats.

    It’s a good point, Texas.

    I lived in the Bay since the Raiders returned. This was during Gruden era and winning does wonders for a fanbase.

    Seemed like MFs were pretty excited to me.

    Losing is killing the Nation.

    But I am not from the Bay, so I can;t answer that question like Oaklanders.

    Jmcclain, please. It’s like that for every team. Trust me, I hear a lot of bad things said about Cowboys players every week here from their fans.

    Fans are passionate and don’t want to see mediocrity or worse from their teams. This is a forum where we get to vent. We don’t have to walk in lockstep with Hue Jackson.

    Frustrates me a lot more than 06-08 though, when we lost playing our best football possible.

    Yezzir!

    Gimme a mean-@ss attacking D that shuts down the run.

    To all you Hue haters out there,

    Considering that this team is still in the playoff mix after losing its starting quarterback in week 6, its starting running back in week 7, two of its best receivers for the last several weeks, and not to mention, arguably, its best D-lineman early in the season, I think Hue is doing just fine. Would I like to see better than the last two weeks? Definitely, but it could be much worse overall with any of the other coaches the Raiders have had lately.

  • No Mas Diamante

    Team was moving the ball pretty well the up until the first pick. Chaz on Woodson was a mismatch.
    If we had been to put up more points, the D still couldn’t have stopped GB. They were damn good on offence and we had no answer.

  • No Mas Diamante

    Did chaz get hurt again? what kind of shoes are these guys wearing? maybe they need to some better cleats or something…

    True.

    Hue really could have been managing the game better last two weeks, though. Gotta admit.

    Carson pick was huge and the subsequent 47-yarder was a backbreaker. Sad you know the day is done already.

    I think Schilens needs to look for a new line of work…. Just can’t stay healthy..

    No it’s not venting it’s hate. Pure hate for this team and it’s players. I see it everyday in here. I know cause I vent to I don’t hate there’s a difference IMO.

  • Nnamdi21

    IF Moore and Ford are still out against Detroit it will mean Oakland has thrown in the towel on the season.

  • No Mas Diamante

    I just want to see Hue get in these guys faces a little. He seems to coddle these guys. he’s always taking the blame. Hue didn’t jump offsides. Hue didn’t miss tackles. Hue didn’t drop passes.He talks about holding people accountable but I’ve yet to see him actually do it.

  • Method To My Madness

    lol chaz

  • Silverandblack666

    Hue is not going anywhere, anyone with a brain can see that but he is approaching Cable territory (8-8) and he will ride Palmer all the way next year.

    You can bet that come September Hue will be selling us on how Palmer is ready for prime time after a camp with his healthy WR’s…..

  • Nnamdi21

    70. Dude, we have a serious troll infestation. Mostly its one psychopath under many, many names but he reveals himself over and over.

    Just ignore the negative, ridiculous and enjoy the REAL discussions. Raiders, political, basketball or what ever.

    Honestly, this is the best, nost active NFL blog ANYWHERE.

    Iggy the creepy losers trolling for abuse. *shudder*

  • autopalm77

    Schilens did reinjure his ankle in the GB game….He will be available for week 15….

  • No Mas Diamante

    JM – don’t confuse us true fans with the numerous trolls that frequent this site. You also have to agree that we are allowed a certain degree of frustration. look at the list of prdicted scores for yesterdays game. (65 of them picked the raiders to win, including me…

    wheres JUSTIN FARGAS when you need him?

    Bills & Broncos games loom large for this team.

    Can’t blow leads and give games away.

    Those 2 would look real good in the W column right now.

    JMcClain, our defense is underperforming. How is that hate? That is fact. Seymour has done nothing all season! We’ve had no defense to speak of for 9 seasons! Do you think this team is doing well?

    face it without weapons we are pedesrian at best! Not on Hue it’s the mind set of players and agents that have made it difficult to get players back on the field! Not a Coach hell we couold have used all of the padded practices possible but can’t! not on Hue! He has done ore than you think by them not quiting! And mention Cable Hue was brought in to call plays for Cable! L.A. Baltimore who cares he’s the man trying to get the job done! Not McFadden Ford or Moore! Murphy’s a joke did Hue Draft him? Shillings is not a #1 or a #2 WR did Hue draft them? it is what it is so pull out your crying towel! We still have a chance! and thats more than we could say last year!

    Bottom line is Hue inherited a dysfunctional team and us paying for the mistakes Al made. It is what it is. The roster needs to be purged a bit as there are a handful of primadonnas and cancers. Hue is in over his head a bit but I think he learns a lot week to week about himself and the coaching profession. I don’t think the Palmer trade was wise, didn’t like Hagan being released so Housh could be brought in. Ausberry needs to be involved and also Pryor. We don’t utilize the TE enough, not enough screens, not enough running wide. I just don’t think Hue uses the players strengths. His ego says this will work. It’s too early to call for Hue to be fired.

Hue is in over his head and I think he needs to be kicked out of the coaching profession. I don’t think the Palmer trade was wise, didn’t like Hagan being released so Housh could be brought in. Ausberry needs to be involved and also Pryor. We don’t utilize the TE enough, not enough screens, not enough running wide. I just don’t think Hue uses the players strengths.

  • imaquaman

    im not saying any one should be fired or cut .but i do remember when gruden was coaching, the guy he had returning punts (i forget his name)was fairly decent yardage wise ,anyway fumbled a punt that might have cost us a game was cut right away ,not benched but cut.next week was next man up
