From Scott Bair of CSN California:
DMC being doubtful is a sign. Not a good one for #Raiders fans. That, plus OL injuries, make Pyor's mobility more valuable than ever now.— Scott Bair (@BairCSN) October 4, 2013
FRom Vic Tafur of The San Francisco Chronicle:
Darren McFadden says he still can’t get to full speed with hamstring. “Don’t want to push it too much now.” #Raiders— Vic Tafur (@VicTafur) October 4, 2013
McFadden says he is taking it day to day. “If I can run like I need to Saturday, you will see me out there on Sunday.”— Vic Tafur (@VicTafur) October 4, 2013
UPDATE: Thursday, Oct. 3
From Scott Bair of CSN Bay Area:
Darren McFadden has been out since the first half of the Redskins loss, which isn’t yet a concern for Raiders coach Dennis Allen. It won’t be Friday, either; practice reps be damned.
“It’s not a situation where he needs a bunch of reps,” Allen said. “I don’t need to see anything Friday. I need to see something right before the game that indicates he’s ready to go.”
UPDATE: Wednesday, Oct. 2
Jerry McDonald of the San Jose Mercury-News has the latest on McFadden's status, and the news isn't good:
Running back Darren McFadden was conspicuous by his absence Wednesday during the media window as the Raiders began preparations to face the San Diego Chargers.
McFadden, who departed in the second quarter of a 24-14 loss to Washington with a hamstring strain, was neither on the field nor working with the athletic training staff.
Given McFadden's injury history, the Raiders could be considering sitting McFadden against San Diego Sunday night and Kansas City on Oct. 13 with the bye week coming in Week 7. That would give McFadden until Oct. 27 against Pittsburgh to return.
UPDATE: Monday, Sept. 30
From Paul Gutierrez of ESPN:
#Raiders Marcel Reece had MRI, came back negative; Darren McFadden has hamstring strain; Terrelle Pryor needs to be non-symptamatic to play— Paul Gutierrez (@PGutierrezESPN) September 30, 2013
From Vic Tafur of The San Francisco Chronicle:
Marcel Reece had MRI on knee, nothing surgical is needed. Allen said too early to speculate how long he & Darren McFadden (hamstring) out— Vic Tafur (@VicTafur) September 30, 2013
As noted by ESPN's Paul Gutierrez, Darren McFadden was off to a strong start before the setback occurred:
And DMC already has more rushing yards on one carry today than he did all of last game— Paul Gutierrez (@PGutierrezESPN) September 29, 2013
After rushing for only nine yards on 12 carries against the Denver Broncos in Week 3, McFadden ripped off a 14-yard scamper on Oakland's first offensive play of the game. He had five carries for 29 yards before leaving the contest.
In the midst of his sixth NFL season, McFadden has never completed a full 16-game schedule in five previous attempts. The former Arkansas standout has been hit by the injury bug more than once in his career and was hampered a shoulder problem in the preseason this year.
For his career, McFadden has rushed for over 3,500 yards and collected 25 total touchdowns.
