Found November 05, 2012 on NFL Trade Rumors:
ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported last night that Raiders RB Darren McFadden suffered a high-ankle sprain on his first carry of the game, but he chose to play through the injury. He would later re-injury his ankle, which forced him out of the game. Mike Goodson stepped in to replace McFadden, but he too suffered an ankle injury. ESPN’s Bill Williamson expects Marcel Reece to see more playing time next week now that the Raiders top-two running backs are banged up. Oakland also has Taiwan Jones, but they made it clear that they were more comfortable using Reece once McFadden and Goodson were out. He could have a surprisingly productive day next week as the Raiders take on a Ravens defense 26th in rushing yards allowed.
