McFadden full go at practice, expected to play against Cowboys

By Steve Corkran
Wednesday, November 27th, 2013 at 11:50 am in Oakland Raiders.

Running back Darren McFadden made it through Wednesday’s practice at full strength, prompting the Raiders to list him as questionable for the Dallas Cowboys game.
That seems like a mere formality, given coach Dennis Allen and McFadden expect McFadden to play. McFadden missed all of the past three games and most of the fourth with a hamstring injury.
Defensive tackle Daniel Muir and offensive tackle Menelik Watson also were full go today. Watson is questionable for Thursday’s game, Muir probable.
Wide receiver Denarius Moore (shoulder), strong safety Tyvon Branch (ankle) and defensive end Jason Hunter (foot) will not play against the Cowboys.
The Cowboys also are going into the game short-handed, with linebacker Sean Lee, standout kick returner Dwayne Harris and cornerback Morris Claiborne among the players that won’t play.
The Raiders are on their way to the Oakland Airport right now for the flight to Dallas. They play the second of three Thanksgiving Day games.

    You think too highly of our players, my good man.

  • RaidingTexas

    Usually the OL has to play well as a unit for anyone to get a Pro Bowl nod. I think Wiz deserves consideration though.

    Condo, Houston and Jones are the only ones with a chance and I bet only 1 of them make it.

  • RaiderLen

    They have a whole fantasy department @bspn, maybe the Pro’s ought to take a walk over to the geeky side of the building. lol

  • MachoManRandySavage

    Not to be mean, but CB Jennings injury is 10x more important than DMac’s comeback. We are facing one of the top passing attacks in the NFL, we need Jennings back! DMac has been clearly outplayed by RB Jennings.

    Reggie can’t draft his way out of a wet paper bag.
    Awesome with UDFA’s though. Maybe we can hire a REAL GM and give him the asst GM he deserves.

  • RaiderLen

    Good one.

  • RaiderLen

    100%

  • EMRaiders

    McF is back? He’ll be good for maybe 2 plays before his hangnail bothers him again. Whats the over/under on number of plays before he gets hurt, does vegas have the odds?

    Seriously though, I hope olson gets creative and uses all 3, reece, mcf, and jennings in the backfield, at the same time, or reece and mcf as wrs, with streater in 3 wr sets.

  • The Big Banana

    Nothing ” mean” about it. It’s the truth. DMAC will be gone next year. 1 less name for DA to write on the weekly injury report.

  • MachoManRandySavage

    IMO: DT Sims. DE Houston. S Woodson.

    Not one person on offense.

    Taiwan Jones had a very hot streak, he must keep it up. Condo? nope.

    PFT is an aggregator site, they just have a bunch of dudes following twitter all day and immediately write up a quick few paragraphs to get out front.

    The goal for the NFL is to have an “Event” every month.

  • prometheus

    rashad jennings is an RB2 in FF. McFragile needs to be cut, OAK can get 3.3 YPC from anybody

  • MEX_GHOST

    And you´re too high wearing no “clothes” in this fúcken cold.

  • RaidingTexas

    Didn’t they try that with NFL Europe?

  • disqus_yeZNegncsV

    What Is the actual type of injury to Moore’s shoulder? Anyone know?

  • prometheus

    he has “i don’t feel like playing” shoulder stinger

  • Piratical

    1. I guess you’re taking the over.

  • MEX_GHOST

    If another team takes Wilson, the Raiders will sign a veteran QB to mentor McG.

  • https://twitter.com/MimiPeepeechimi Just Fire Baby

    Kind of, I think it goes combine-sometype of OTA’-drafts-rookie camp-training camp- and so on.

  • https://twitter.com/MimiPeepeechimi Just Fire Baby

    There is literally no chance of a team signing Wilson at this stage in the season to the roster. If they didn’t do it after training camp or during the season when he was on the PS, why would they now? He might tell us to piss off though and go to another teams PS, but not a roster.

  • disqus_yeZNegncsV

    Thing is, Jennings needs to be spelled now and then; he got hurt last Sunday but did tough it out.

    Would like to see more of that big bruiser of a FB who got us some yds. What’s his name?

  • disqus_yeZNegncsV

    Yeah, I’ve wondered just how yough DM might be or not be.

  • The Big Banana

    Almost 2 years in, Reggie and DA have matched the Al Davis’ Raiders of the previous 9 years. Almost identical winning percentage. So some fans are happy. See, they say. They’re not doing any worse than Al.

    Problem is…they weren’t hired to match or even slightly match the Al of the past 9 years, an old legend who let the modern era pass him by. No, they both came in highly touted and regarded.

    So we shouldn’t be comparing them to the Al of the last decade. No, they should be compared to the Al of the late 60′s, who upon joining the Raiders, dominated the competition. They should be compared to the best GMs and coaches of today. And in that regard, its not looking good thus far, folks.

    Should they get another year? Yes. But the leash has been shortened and the body of work so far is not impressive.

  • KoolKell

    Reggie will get 5-6 wins out of a 70 million payroll.
    While it took Al 150 million to get 4 wins.

    A little context.

  • prometheus

    you’re good at finding excuses for failure.

  • HELLSBELLS

    Tyler Wilson cut.

  • https://twitter.com/MimiPeepeechimi Just Fire Baby

    They should just be asked to not finish last in the division.
    No Al this, or Al that, pre FA Al, post FA Al.
    I gave Reggie a pass last year, he could have went 0-16 and I would have said he deserves year 2.
    And granted he wasn’t dealt the best hand. But like in poker, you can play pocket 7′s, or K-8, or you can keep calling with Aces on the board and look like a moron at the end.

  • DJ Johnny

    Jameze Olawale you thinking of?

  • RediaR

    Sprain

  • The Beeeeech Dawg

    Krappy, are you planning on blogging on Thanksgiving?

    That’d be even funnier than when you blogged all night on your anniversary

    Jus sayin’

  • The Big Banana

    Again, you’re comparing to the modern era Al. You’ve grown accustomed to losing. Guess it’s fine for you.

  • 0ak R8rs

    Where was Taiwan Jones’ hot streak? Was he at the casino?

  • RediaR

    Well. yeah. Even if Wilson wasn’t cut that would be the case.

  • prometheus

    damn there goes the playoffs

  • KoolKell

    I’m certainly not comparing Pre-Free Agency era Al Davis of the 60′s

  • 0ak R8rs

    Is that a wish? Or did that happen?

  • The Beeeeech Dawg

    Hey Dork, it’s not too late to lose your virginity before Thanksgiving.

    Craigslist personals are always open, word to your mother

  • https://twitter.com/MimiPeepeechimi Just Fire Baby

    Some of that payroll issue is Reggie’s doing as well.
    Flynn, Tollefson, Watson and Hayden count about 10 million of it and that was all Reggie.
    We aren’t getting anything out of that.
    Could have handled the Seymour situation last year better as well.
    These last 5 games are for his job, IMO. He has to AT LEAST win 2 of them.
    4 or 5 wins and he is gone. 7 and 8 wins he is doing fine. 6 he prob gets another year. The rubber meets the road RIGHT NOW.

  • https://twitter.com/MimiPeepeechimi Just Fire Baby

    Happened.

  • https://twitter.com/MimiPeepeechimi Just Fire Baby

    Shows how out of the loop you are.
    Craigslist is so 2010.

  • DJ Johnny

    …are u saying he shouldn’t have blown it up?

  • KoolKell

    So you say. FF GM

  • RediaR

    Really reaching for the hateraide there.

  • 0ak R8rs

    Nvm. I see. PS move. Likely means nothing. He will be back Friday.

  • The Beeeeech Dawg

    So where does a desperate nerd like oakdork go to buy his first taste of punanee?

  • https://twitter.com/MimiPeepeechimi Just Fire Baby

    We are in last place. Not acceptable.
    Reggie didn’t take over a last placed team, and we weren’t in last place last year.
    Time to get it going. Starting tomorrow. Tough game to win, but we used our get out of jail free card losing to the last placed Skins at home with his hand-picked QB playing.

  • https://twitter.com/MimiPeepeechimi Just Fire Baby

    Yes, that is what I say.
    It is called an opinion. Reggie got a full pass last year, and has done some good things, no doubt.
    But not enough to if we win 4 or 5 games he gets a 3rd year.
    6 will prob keep him around. 7 or 8 will have me excited.
