It’s likely the Raiders must push on without RB Darren McFadden in the short term. That switches focus to Rashad Jennings, who would take over as feature back.

Fantasy Impact:

McFadden said he'd rather miss a game or two to ensure he's good for the long term, and since that was a direct quote it seems very doubtful McFadden plays this week - although he's not officially ruled out yet. Two games would take him right to the Raiders bye week, so it would be plenty of time to get the hammy back to full strength. Those games would include this week against San Diego and next week against Kansas City.

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.
