X-rays came back negative, and he will undergo an MRI today, according to Schefter. While it’s good news that nothing is broken, a high ankle sprain can sideline players for a significant amount of time. The Raiders playoff hopes were already slipping away, as they fell to third place in the AFC West with their loss to the Bucs, and losing McFadden for an extended period of time would seem to be the final nail in their coffin. Beyond McFadden, several other Raiders sustained injuries yesterday, including defensive lineman Desmond Bryant and running back Mike Goodson. Bryant was taken to the hospital because of a fast heartbeat, while Goodson, McFadden’s replacement, limped off the field in the fourth quarter with a right ankle injury.
