Raiders GM Reggie McKenzie admits that he hasn't found a replacement for Michael Bush, the 6-foot-1, 245-pound back who handled short-distance duties and filled in for the injured Darren McFadden last year.

"We don't have that big back, but we've got a couple of backs that are playing fullback for us that can be that guy," McKenzie said. "We feel good about the versatility of (Marcel Reece), and all our fullbacks have the ability to run it. (Owen Schmitt) can run it, short yardage. We got some guys that can, I'm kind of anxious to see them in preseason."

Fantasy Impact:

Reece's role could increase significantly with Bush gone, though it sounds like Mike Goodson is the RB2 in Oakland right now. In short yardage, the team may elect to use McFadden since he is pretty adept around the goal line.

In their places, the Eagles signed former Seattle Seahawks fullback Owen Schmitt from free agency, and signed tight end/H-back Garrett Mills from their practice squad. The team then signed offensive lineman Fenuki Topou to the practice squad to replace Mills.
