San Francisco Chronicle - [Full Article]

Raiders running back Darren McFadden, who re-tweaked his right ankle Thursday against Denver, practiced Monday and said he expects to play Sunday.

“It made my nerves kind of jittery,” he said. “(But) it was more of a scare than anything. It was cool today. … I was moving good, making all my cuts. I’m not concerned.”

Raiders RB Darren McFadden is practicing today despite re-injuring ankle Thursday night.

Fantasy Impact:

McFadden Received 13 touches and gained 64 yards including a TD reception in a bad matchup with the Broncos. McFadden looks on track for a much better matchup against the Chiefs this week.

Dwayne Bowe to be put on IR

Monday, December 10, 2012, 4:56pm

Pro Football Talk - [Full Article]

Chiefs wide receiver Dwayne Bowe was ruled out for this week’s game against the Raiders early on Monday and now he’s been ruled out for the rest of the season.

PFT has learned via a league source that Bowe will be placed on injured reserve as a result of the broken ribs he suffered in Sunday’s lopsided loss to the Browns. Bowe had two catches for 70 yards before leaving Sunday’s game.

Fantasy Impact:

Many feel Bowe has now played his last game as a Chief. For this year, it's an obvious blow to an already very bad passing game. Jonathan Baldwin and Terrance Copper will likely start with Dexter McCluster in the slot. As you should already know, it's a situation to stay away from.

Darren McFadden tweaks troublesome ankle

Friday, December 7, 2012, 10:53am

San Jose Mercury News - [Full Article]

Raiders running back Darren McFadden was back Thursday night, but maybe not for long.

After missing four weeks with a high right ankle sprain, McFadden rushed for 52 yards on 11 carries and caught a 6-yard touchdown pass in the second quarter of a 26-13 loss to the Denver Broncos at O.co Coliseum.

By the end of the game, McFadden was back on the sideline, and in the postgame locker room, he was getting treatment on the same right ankle that cost him a month of the season.

"We just got off the field, so I don't really know exactly where it is, I just know he wasn't able to finish the game," coach Dennis Allen said.

Jason Cole of Yahoo added this tweet: "Talked to a source after Den-Oak game last night. He said McFadden 'tweaked' his ankle and injury is not as serious as before. We'll see."

Fantasy Impact:

McFadden turned 13 touches into 64 yards and a receiving TD, while Marcel Reece touched the ball five times (four carries, one catch) for 15 yards. Mike Goodson was active, while Jeremy Stewart was inactive. If McFadden misses any time, Goodson figures to form a RBBC with Reece, who played less halfback in Week 13 (leading to several carries for Stewart). The Raiders play Kansas City and Carolina in Week 15-16, so the remaining schedule is favorable.

Fantasy Impact:

RBs Darren McFadden & Mike Goodson return to the lineup tonight. McFadden is expected to get starter work. Marcel Reece is banged up, but will also be in the mix. It's a tough matchup and a muddy situation. We'd steer clear if possible. McFadden was averaging only 3.27 YPC before his ankle injury.

Fantasy Impact:

Darren McFadden is expected to return to his RB1 role with Marcel Reece sliding back to his FB/utility position. Brandon Stokley is very iffy for Thursday's game -- he's probably going to miss his second straight game.

Marcel Reece has hamstring, quadricep injuries

Tuesday, December 4, 2012, 2:42pm

Contra Costa Times - [Full Article]

Raiders RB Marcel Reece is hobbled by hamstring and quadriceps injuries right now.

The Raiders signed fullback/running back Jamize Olawale from the Dallas Cowboys practice squad. Olawale takes the place of suspended middle linebacker Rolando McClain, who is out until Dec. 10, at the least.

Fantasy Impact:

The Raiders expect running backs Darren McFadden and Mike Goodson to return for Thursday night’s game against the Broncos. Expect Reece to be limited if he plays. Drop him if you need the roster spot.

Raiders wide receiver Jacoby Ford says he is out of the walking boot and ready to crank up his rehab. Out for the season after surgery.

Monday, December 3, 2012, 11:35am

Contra Costa Times - [Full Article]

Raiders running back Mike Goodson worked out before the game in Week 13 but was not active. Coach Dennis Allen said he expected Goodson to play Thursday.

Fantasy Impact:

RB Darren McFadden is also expected back for Thursday Night Football, so Goodson figures to back up McFadden and Marcel Reece.

Raiders coach Dennis Allen said that he did bench receiver Denarius Moore for performance reasons.

Fantasy Impact:

Moore had some bad drops and finished with only 2 catches on 8 targets. Of more concern is the fact that Moore has now caught only 4 balls in his last 3 games combined after a hot start to the season.

Darren McFadden expected back Week 14

Monday, December 3, 2012, 9:11am

Steve Corkran on Twitter - [Full Article]

Raiders coach Dennis Allen said he expects RB Darren McFadden to play Thursday night.

Fantasy Impact:

It was speculated that McFadden was ready Week 13, but the team kept him out due to poor field conditions because of the rain prior to the game. McFadden would be a tough start because he takes on the Broncos on Thursday night. Marcel Reece should be involved behind McFadden.
