Teammates expect Raider running back Darren McFadden to return this week, after he missed his third straight start Sunday with a high ankle sprain.
His fill-ins didn't fare too badly, as they ran for 73 yards in the second half. (Why they ran the ball so much down 24 points is another question.)

Marcel Reece would fill in again if McFadden can't go, and it's another pretty good matchup for whoever the starter is at RB.
Darrius Heyward-Bey active, risky start

Taiwan Jones running with first team

"He’s been a little up and down," Raiders coach Dennis Allen said of Jones. "A little injury-prone, or injury-plagued, and so it’s been kind of tough to evaluate because he’s missed some time. But we've got confidence in Taiwan and if he’s called on to step in and play, then we fully anticipate him stepping in and perform and do his job."
Jones is a smaller speed back who has never carried the ball more than seven times in a regular-season NFL game. Last year, he carried the ball 16 times for 73 yards (4.7 YPC). He's likely to be the main ballcarrier with both McFadden and Goodson out, but Marcel Reece will be heavily involved, even if it's just in the passing game.
