Looks like McFadden will sit it out

Running back Darren McFadden was on the field early working with injured players and not on the field as the club went through warm-ups preceding the Raiders’ preseason game with the Chicago Bears.

McFadden came out of the New Orleans game with a shoulder injury coach Dennis Allen said wasn’t serious. McFadden was on the field for practice session this week, but it’s not known if he saw any contact. The Raiders went into their regular-season mode, so the media was excluded after warmups and drills.

Others who won’t be playing include safety Tyvon Branch, defensive tackle Pat Sims and offensive tackle Menelik Watson.

One player who will be playing is first-round draft pick D.J. Hayden, who is suited up and presumably ready for his first live football action since last November, when he suffered a near-fatal practice injury when a blood vessel leading to his heart ruptured.

    Well I’m going to disappear for awhile. The game starts at 7pm but isn’t showing on TV until 8pm and I don’t want to hear anything about it until I watch it.

    Win, Lose or Tie…Raiders till I die!

  • RaiderLen

    cya mcxcuse…

  • J Hill

    McFadden doesn’t want to play in Oakland.

    Why else would he turn down extension talks???

  • Raiders for life

    Good luck tonight Nation. I’m nervous.

  • 0ak r8rs

    McFadden is gone. Good riddens. Best thing that could happen is for Murray to get healthy quick and get a couple hundred carries this year. See what we have. Let McFragile sit till he jettisons himself at the end of the year

    I wouldn’t count him out just yet. Regular season week 2 will tell the story.

  • Kirk

    Reece should be our starting halfback.

  • the famous dr robert

    This is exactly what I was hoping for. A chance to see what the other backs can do.

    And a chance for Flynn to operate with a real running attack.

    Beautiful.

    Hopefull they deal DMc.

    @@@@@@

    I’m talking more in terms of his whole career. Not so much tn. Pay the guy all that money, he’s ineffective the first two years, hurt most of the rest. And now he turns down an extension? Dead man walking as far as I’m concerned.

    I like how Jennings puts it. ” In the NFL there are no backups, the backups are the guys at home watching it on TV”

  • the famous dr robert

    I wonder if a trade is afoot.

    Reece should be our starting OW.

    I can’t see what we could possibly get for him. All this potential but never on the field. And now hurt again? Albeit supposedly minor. I wouldn’t want him. Although, someone did take Felix Jones. So I guess it could happen.

    Playing in games and being productive on the regular.

    That is the bottom line.

    If Guys like Ford and McFadden can’t suit up, or are not productive…

    As a 3rd/4th round pick,even if he is a swing BU(G and T) he isn’t a wasted pick.

  • RaiderLen

    DJ Hayden.

    Please let Him be Mike Haynes 2.0

    I expect this Kid to be real good.

    It will be good to get a glimps of a very rusty 1st round pick.

    Hasn’t played since November 2012.
