According to Jerry McDonald of InsideTheBayArea.com, Raiders running back Darren McFadden could end up playing on Thursday against the Cowboys and used to spell Rashad Jennings.
McFadden could be used to spell Rashad Jennings, who had 122 yards from scrimmage (73 rushing, 49 receiving) against Tennessee and has 553 yards rushing and receiving in his last four games.
“To me, I could have been back last week, but I have to take my time with it,” McFadden said. “I know if I rush it, this time it will probably be over for the season.”
It sounds like the Raiders finally realizing McFadden can’t stay healthy long enough to handle the entire load.
