Injured running backs Darren McFadden and Mike Goodson have been placed on the inactive list by the Oakland Raiders for Sunday's game against the Baltimore Ravens.
McFadden and Goodson rank 1-2 on the team's rushing list. Both have sprained right ankles, leaving Taiwan Jones - who has one carry for 2 yards this year - as the likely starter.
Oakland also put defensive tackle Richard Seymour (leg) on the inactive list, along with backup offensive tackle Khalif Barnes (groin), guard Lucas Nix and defensive end Jack Crawford.
Baltimore's inactives included defensive end Pernell McPhee (thigh), offensive lineman Ramon Harewood and safety Christian Thompson.

Doc is not surprised that Darren McFadden got hurt. That’s right up there with the sun rising in the east, the Cubs being a crummy baseball team and the SEC thinking its the best college football conference since the dawn of mankind. It’s predictable and quite dull.

The Ravens return home after a month to take on the Raiders. Last Sunday, the Ravens squeaked out a win over the Browns and the Raiders lost a shootout to the Buccaneers in Oakland.
