Oakland running back Mike Goodson has indeed suffered the dreaded "high ankle" sprain and is likely to miss an extended period of time.Fantasy Spin:A golden opportunity missed by Goodson, who would have been in line for a big time workload in the absence of lead back Darren McFadden (also out with a high ankle sprain). Taiwan Jones and Marcel Reece will take over the running back duties for the Raiders next week in Baltimore with Reece being the more appealing fantasy option because of receiving ability (eight grabs, 95 yards and a TD Sunday against the Buccaneers).
