McFadden, Walker still sidelined with injuries

ALAMEDA — Running back Darren McFadden and defensive lineman Vance Walker aren’t at practice again today. That makes it unlikely that either will play against the Kansas City Chiefs.
McFadden missed last game with an ankle injury that he suffered in his return from a three-game absence because of a hamstring injury. Now it’s likely that he’ll miss his sixth game this season Sunday and 29th of his six-year NFL career.
Rashad Jennings is expected back after he missed the New York Jets game with a concussion. Also, Marcel Reece and Taiwan Jones are healthy and ready for action if called upon.
Walker is recovering from a concussion that he suffered against the Jets. He has not been cleared to practice at all this week. Therefore, the odds are long of his making a rapid recovery between now and the Chiefs game.
Wide receiver Denarius Moore is back at practice, showing no effects from practicing the day before for the first time since he injured a shoulder against the Houston Texans on Nov. 17. He missed the past three games.
It remains to be seen how Moore fits into the equation upon his return, given the emergence of Rod Streater as a go-to receiver and Andre Holmes as a viable No. 2.
What is certain is that Moore pushes Jacoby Ford down the depth chart, which makes it a stretch to envision Ford getting many reps. Ford has 13 receptions for 99 yards so far this season.

    Nicks is having a down year and he has been relatively healthy this year. he is also very injury-prone.

    Just no to manziel…. Let him be some other team’s headache….

  • Rico Stifler

    Yeah, makes me feel very happy about trading a 2nd round 2014 rookie draft pick for Foles before the season started….

    ok bro. I never thougt Stafford was worth a lick in college. So I am biased. IMHO, Detroit has so much talent and continually under achieve each year.
