The Oakland Raiders have been hurt by injuries at the running back position. Darren McFadden, who missed last week's game with the San Diego Chargers, was back at today's practice in limited fashion. McFadden has been an all too common name on the injury report throughout his Raiders' career, but is making progress from his hamstring.
Joining McFadden in limited practice was back-up running back Rashad Jennings, who left Sunday's win with a hamstring injury. Tackle Tony Pashos and Fullback Marcel Reece were able to go on a limited basis.
Three players missing from practice were center Stefen Wisniewski, strong safety Tyvon Branch and rookie tackle Menelik Watson. Wisniewski is a huge part of the offensive line, but remains unable to go. Watson is dealing with a reoccurring calf injury that was sidelined him throughout all of the season and most of training camp.
The Raiders take on AFC West rival Kansas City Chiefs this Sunday on the road. The Raiders have won sixth meetings in a row at Arrowhead Stadium. The Chiefs come in at a prefect 5-0 this season.
