The Oakland Raiders are gearing up for a game against the Minnesota Vikings this season. Even though the Vikings don't have an impressive record, they have one of the best running backs in the league -- something the Raiders might be without, according to Wednesday's injury report.
Starting running back Darren McFadden was one of seven Raiders players that missed all of Wednesday's practice for Oakland as he attempts to recover from a foot injury. Other notable names out included Richard Seymour, Jacoby Ford and kicker Sebastian Janikowski, but McFadden is obviously a key to the team's offense.
As SB Nation's Sean Keeley notes, it's difficult to project whether McFadden will return this week, despite making "huge progress".
Oakland Raiders running back Darren McFadden was not wearing a protective boot at practice on Wednesday, something that head coach Hue Jackson called "huge progress" in the hopes that McFadden would return for this week's game against the Minnesota Vikings.
McFadden continues to make progress from the mid-foot sprain that has kept him out of the Raiders' last two games but has yet to resume practice or workouts.
