Oakland Raiders running back Rashad Jennings is fighting through a hamstring injury that makes the team's already precarious backfield situation all the more uncertain.

Thankfully, Raiders head coach Dennis Allen provided a positive update on Jennings' status on Tuesday, as documented by's Scott Bair.

"We’ll see. We’ll go up and talk about it this afternoon, but I don’t expect Rashad [Jennings] to be a big issue, and hopefully Darren [McFadden] will be back soon," said Allen.

Jennings will play in Week 6.
