Oakland tailback Darren McFadden limped off the field with about six minutes left in the fourth quarter of Thursday night's game against Denver after twisting an ankle.Fantasy Spin:Just another day in the life of Darren McFadden fantasy owners. Living with his injuries is part of the "fun" of owning the oft-injured, slow-healing Raiders' running back.

The Oakland Raiders are going to need everything for them to go right to win this ballgame. Thanks to the horrible defense, this team doesn’t stand a chance in a season filled with disappointment.
