Raiders RB Darren McFadden (hamstring) missed practice again Thursday. HC Dennis Allen kept the door open for McFadden to play without practicing, but it seems unlikely given his history of injury. Rashad Jennings figures to carry the load with Marcel Reece, if available, getting some work in the passing game.

Due to baseball playoffs, Raiders Oct. 6 home game vs. Chargers has been switched from 4:25 pm ET to 11:35 pm ET.

Fantasy Impact:

It's going to put in question Darren McFadden and Terrelle Pryor for next week. While Pryor seems more likely to play, at this point you could be risking points if their statuses aren't clearer heading toward Sunday.

Raiders coach Dennis Allen had no information on how long fullback Marcel Reece (knee) might be out, although it's believed Reece's injury is the more serious than RB Darren McFadden's.

Fantasy Impact:

Rashad Jennings could end up starting Week 5 against the Chargers in what is a pretty tough matchup.

Rapoport: Darren McFadden hamstring injury not serious

Sounds like Raiders RB Darren McFadden's hamstring injury isn't a major one. We'll see about this Sunday, but he avoided serious injury.

Fantasy Impact:

McFadden limped into the Coliseum locker room on a cranky hamstring in the second quarter. Though he returned briefly, unsuccessfully, Oakland never scored again. McFadden's been hurt before, got hurt Sunday and is going to get hurt again. It's the reason McFadden fell in a lot of drafts this past summer and it's now leaving owners scrambling again to possibly find a replacement. There is no word on how long McFadden will be out yet, but it at least doesn't appear to be too long. Backup Marcel Reece was also hurt and it appears more serious (knee) which means Rashad Jennings could start Week 5 in a pretty tough matchup against the Chargers at home.

Raiders HC Dennis Allen said team wanted to exercise extreme caution with QB Terrelle Pryor, so held him out. Feels good about him playing next week.

Fantasy Impact:

Pryor was set to start but reports said he started to feel symptoms again leading up to the game so that team went with backup Matt Flynn, who struggled in a loss to Washington.

Raiders QB Terrelle Pryor (concussion, questionable) took limited practice reps again Friday and is questionable for Week 4. Adam Schefter reported that Pryor is unlikely to play against the Redskins, though HC Dennis Allen said on Friday that Pryor just has to pass one more test on Saturday to play, so hopefully we'll have more clarity tomorrow. Matt Flynn would be a high-risk Sneaky Start against a very shaky Redskins pass defense. If he can play, Pryor would be a top 12 QB given the matchup.

Raiders RB Jamize Olawale (ankle, probable) took full practice reps again Friday and is probable for Week 4.

Raiders QB Terrelle Pryor, who suffered a concussion Monday night, is unlikely to play Sunday vs. Washington, per sources.

Fantasy Impact:

Matt Flynn is likely to get the start. He has a great matchup against the Redskins, but would be a risky play as a QB2-type.
