McFadden watch will go to Sunday

Looks like the Darren McFadden watch will go up to kickoff Sunday at Arrowhead Stadium.

McFadden was listed as questionable Friday by the Raiders after limited practice time and was less than emphatic that he would play against the Kansas City Chiefs.

“I feel pretty good,’’ McFadden said following practice. “We’re just going to try and make that decision whenever it comes time to make a decision _ whatever the coaches and the trainers feel like is the best for me.’’

Asked if he had run with the burst he would in a game, McFadden said, “If I haven’t done it I feel like I’ve gotten pretty close to it. I’m just looking forward to whatever decisions the coaches and trainers make.’’

Both McFadden and Rashad Jennings, also listed as questionable, were limited in practice all three days. In most cases, players who participate in practice throughout the week even if limited wind up playing on Sunday.

“I watched him all week in practice,’’ Raiders coach Dennis Allen said. “I like where he’s at. I feel good about where he’s at. We’ll see how he feels tomorrow. But I think every day he’s gotten a little bit better.’’

Also listed as questionable were linebacker Kaluka Maiava (hamstring), defensive tackle Stacy McGee (shoulder) and right tackle Tony Pashos (shoulder). Running back Marcel Reece (knee) is probable.

Listed as out were center Stefen Wisniewski (knee), tackle Menelik Watson (calf) and strong safety Tyvon Branch (ankle). Branch is still on crutches but was not wearing a protective boot.

    Gameday live giving Pryor some love.

  • M.Shorter

    Sounds good to me.

    I thought Flacco’s deal was awful from the outset, and even on the heels of the SuperBowl. His receivers had a lot to do with his success. He is NOT worth all that money. But couldn’t happen to a better team. Well, maybe it could…

  • r8ter4evr

    Funny how its easy to jump on the wagon after its built

  • SnBG

    Can the Raiders O handle the noise. This is a huge issue

  • r8ter4evr

    Take the crowd out score early and often

  • Oaktown Raiders

    Harrison has it OAK 17 KC 20. I do believe this will be a close one.. But Oaktowns coming out on top. Yeehaw.

  • 10centsworth

    Not true. Watching degeneration has its own reward.

  • SnBG

    Interesting article on Schaub. His issue could be mental and not with an injury he had in the past. Point is, this is tough for the experts to figure out.

    Want to see aggressive in your face de on Smith he can be rattled

  • Ray

    McFadden throws a TD today

  • SnBG

    So what, it’s nice that Pryor is inspiring love.

  • M.Shorter

    Right. F all these analysis saying we’re going to win 2 games with year.

  • SnBG

    I don’t care if love is coming for what ever reason. I’m glad to see we are getting some.

  • r8ter4evr

    I agree wish these haters on this blog would see the QBthat TPis

  • M.Shorter

    That true. But 3 games ago he couldn’t throw from the pocket according to these so called experts.

  • r8ter4evr

    TP is the real deal already great news he is only going to get BETTER

  • M.Shorter

    But watch how quick experts revert back to saying we’re garbage if we lose.

  • SnBG

    I hear you, enjoy the love. It’s been a long time coming.

  • Chino

    Brandon Flowers is out today. Get em TP!

  • r8ter4evr

    Short memory like some on this blog

  • M.Shorter

    I am man. Its just weird getting some love. Been 10 years. Finally we have a franchise qb.

  • SnBG

    TP has really improved and keeps getting better. No one talks about his pocket presence. It’s great. Dude can sense the rush. You can’t teach that.

  • 10centsworth

    Seized by the government. Tks MrP, got me on another list.

  • r8ter4evr

    Vision and athleticism. AL saw both

  • SnBG

    True that! TP has energized this team and us fans.

  • SnBG

    Screw em. Who cares. We are getting better.

  • 10centsworth

    Wishful thinking or prediction? I’ll take the same guy that showed up last week.

  • SnBG

    You have to give Al credit on this.

  • 408RAIDER

    is this the week McFadden earns his monies?

  • r8ter4evr

    He s determined.to carry this team back to greatness

  • SnBG

    I think Pryor will get better. Next year get him some more help and give him a healthy Oline and we will be a seriously dangerous O.

  • M.Shorter

    Yeah. Fack em.

  • Just Fire Baby

    Why is everyone so concerned with what the naional media has to say? Everyone was all up in arms about Dan Fouts last week, then it turned into a Dan Fouts I love Terrelle Pryor broadcast.

  • SnBG

    I would love to see that!

  • r8ter4evr

    He could still see talent just systems changed and he didnt adjust RIP

  • Just Fire Baby

    I wouldn’t put any “monies” on it

  • M.Shorter

    Im over it. Time to move on.
