Darren McFadden will be sidelined at least two weeks after suffering what coach Hue Jackson called "a little small fracture" of an orbital bone Wednesday during practice.
"He had a beautiful smile on his face," Jackson said. "I was teasing him, 'Buddy, what's wrong with you?' He said, 'Coach, I'm feeling good.' He's going to be fine. It's exciting because a year ago it was about a couple weeks he was out with the hamstring, and the guy went and had 1,157 yards. So we have to do better than that this time."
Jackson is counting heavily on McFadden to have another big year. Last year as Oakland's offensive coordinator, Jackson made McFadden the focus of an attack that ranked second in rushing and sixth in scoring.
