The Oakland Raiders held running back Darren McFadden out of last night’s preseason contest against the Chicago Bears due to what the team is calling a minor shoulder injury, according to Vic Tafur of the San Francisco Chronicle. Darren McFadden had minor shoulder injury in last week's game, practiced all week but #Raiders coaches playing it safe tonight — Vic Tafur (@VicTafur) August 24, 2013 McFadden sustained the injury during last week’s preseason game. Tafur noted that McFadden was able to practice throughout the week, but the Raiders elected to take a precautious approach with the running back. This is clearly an injury that wouldn’t have sidelined McFadden during a regular-season game, especially since he was practicing throughout the week despite the ailment. However, anything injury-related regarding McFadden will be blown up because of the injury issues he’s faced throughout his career. McFadden hasn’t played in more than 13 games in a season, and he’s actually missed a combined 13 games over the past two years, according to NFL.com. For this reason, any time he misses any amount of action people will take notice. That and the flashes of impressive play he’s shown when he’s able to remain healthy and on the field. The shoulder injury won’t prevent McFadden from suiting up for Week 1, and he might even make a limited appearance for the team’s fourth preseason game. However, it does once again bring into question McFadden’s fragility and injury-proneness. Follow @TheNFLInjuryRpt Looking for fantasy football advice?
