Found November 07, 2012 on Silver and Black Daily:
It was a painful week in many ways for Silver and Black Nation. It was bad enough that Bucs rookie running back Doug Martin made like Walter Payton against the Oakland defense. Add to that the twin high-ankle sprains for Darren McFadden and Mike Goodson, and the week could not have gone any worse. McFadden has not been ruled out [...]

Darren McFadden, Mike Goodson both have high ankle sprains

Oakland Raiders running back’s Darren McFadden and Mike Goodson both suffered high ankle sprains during Sunday’s loss to the Buccaneers. I believe fullback Marcel Reece ended up finishing the game as their tailback. High ankle sprains typically take some time to heal.  I would think the Raiders will need to pick up a free agent running back.   var _CI = _CI || {}; (function...

Palmer now pivotal figure for Raiders

What was becoming evident throughout the first half of the season is now patently obvious. As much as running back Darren McFadden was touted as the player whose success was most important to the team, it's clear the Raiders will rise or fall with quarterback Carson Palmer. Now that McFadden and backup Mike Goodson both have high ankle sprains, with their status for Sunday...

Aaron Curry activated to the 53-Men Roster

The Oakland Raiders have activated linebacker Aaron Curry to the 53-man roster this Tuesday, as announced by the team’s official twitter account. Curry was placed on the Physically-Unable-to-Perform list before the start of the season with injuries on his knees. To make room for the former 4th overall pick in the 2009 Draft, the Raiders have waived also linebacker Vic So’oto, [...]

Raiders To Increase Taiwan Jones Workload

Raiders second-year running back Taiwan Jones took first team reps during Wednesday’s practice, per Paul Gutierrez of CSNBayArea.com. “He’s been a little up and down,” Raiders head coach Dennis Allen said of Jones, via Gutierrez. “A little injury-prone, or injury-plagued, and so it’s been kind of tough to evaluate because he’s missed some time. But we’ve got confidence...

Offensive Game Grades: Week 9 vs. Tampa Bay

What a heartbreaking loss for the Raider Nation. The Oakland Raiders were able to score 22 points in the fourth quarter, including 15 unanswered, to be one field-goal away from tying the scoreboard on what would have been an incredible comeback. Unfortunately, the 35 points scored by the Buccaneers in the second half ended up being too much to overcome [...]

Raiders' McFadden questionable for Sunday's game with ankle sprain

Oakland Raiders coach Dennis Allen said on Monday that running back Darren McFadden suffered a high ankle sprain in Sunday's loss to Tampa Bay, but he had not been ruled out for this Sunday's game against Baltimore. McFadden's uncertain status is complicated by the fact that his backup at running back, Mike Goodson, also has a high ankle sprain and is also questionable...

Oakland Raiders: Week 10 NFL Power Rankings (#30)

Last week: 30 (-1) Record: 3-5 Oakland/Tampa Bay was a crazy game for statistics. Everyone knows about Doug Martin’s 272 total yards and 4 total touchdowns, which was the 4th highest single game fantasy football total in history.

Darren McFadden & Mike Goodson Out For Week 10

The Oakland Raiders will be without RB’s Darren McFadden and Mike Goodson for Sunday’s game against the Ravens. Both players missed practice on Friday because of high-ankle sprains, so Taiwan Jones figures to see large workload with Marcel Reece being mixed in throughout the game. McFadden’s injury isn’t believed to be too severe, so there’s at least a chance that he...
