Palm Beach Post: For the first time in a month, the Oakland
Raiders expect to have their offense's two young building blocks
on the field together. RB Darren Mcfadden (turf toe) and QB
Jamarcus Russell (bruised right knee) have been limited in
practice, but Raiders HC Cable said he plans to use them Sunday at
Dolphin Stadium. The Raiders' offense is desperate for a spark
after going two weeks without a TD. They have the NFL's lowest-
scoring offense, averaging 12.6 points. Cable, who was named
interim HC when Lane Kiffin was fired Sept. 30, assumed play-
calling duties this week, but he'll need players to make them
work. Few have as much explosiveness as McFadden, the No. 4 pick
last April. He rushed for 164 yards in his second NFL game and
averages 5.1 yards a carry, but he has been out since Oct. 19.
"He's ridiculous the way he hits the holes," LB Channing Crowder
said. "He'll hit a little gap for 20 or 30 yards."
