According to multiple sources, the Oakland Raiders do not fear that the latest ankle injury suffered by running back Darren McFadden is nearly as serious as the one that kept him out for over a month. Still, considering that we are talking about a player as fragile as McFadden, and also considering that the injury did occur to the same ankle that forced him to miss the last four games before last night, I would still say that there is at least some cause for concern.
Over a month ago, McFadden suffered a high ankle sprain that kept him sidelined for four games. He returned to action last night at home against the Denver Broncos, only to leave the game late with another injury. Surprise, surprise. McFadden does just not seem capable of remaining healthy enough to ever make a difference for the Raiders.
