There was worry among the Raiders and their fans when
McFadden appeared to re-injure his ankle against the Broncos. The running back
was coming off a significant ankle injury and his status for this week’s
contest against the Kansas City Chiefs was unknown.
However, practicing is always a good sign, and it would
appear the McFadden is on track to start against the Chiefs.
McFadden sustained a high-ankle sprain in early Nov. during
a contest against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He was put in a walking boot and
held out of the team’s next few games before rejoining the starting lineup last
