The Oakland Raiders backfield has been struck by the injury bug. RB Darren McFadden (ankle) will likely not play this week when the Raiders host the New Orleans Saints. Earlier this week Fox Sports insider Jay Glazer reported that the Raiders initially thought that McFadden would be out 2-4 weeks while dealing with his high ankle sprain. He will not play this week and should be considered at least doubtful for next week’s contest as well.
Fellow Raiders running back Mike Goodson is also dealing with an ankle injury and has not practiced this week. On Thursday, Goodson was seen on the sidelines at practice in a boot.
