Oakland Raiders running back Darren McFadden was back at practice again on Friday, as noted by Rotoworld. McFadden is dealing with a hamstring injury, and will officially be listed as a limited participant. He has practiced each day this week, all in limited fashion.
McFadden missed last week's game due to the injury, and Rashad Jennings got the start. McFadden sustained the injury in a Week 4 loss to the Washington Redskins, after carrying the ball just five times for 29 yards. Jennings played well in relief in that game, carrying the ball 14 times for 45 yards and catching eight passes for 71 yards.
Jennings had just 41 yards as the starter against the San Diego Chargers in Week 5. Jennings is also dealing with an injury of his own, but he is expected to play.
Fantasy Impact: It's great for the Raiders to get their best offensive weapon back, but McFadden and the Oakland running back situation remains iffy as a whole. McFadden will likely start, but the team could be looking to limit his carries and give Jennings some touches at this point. It's hard to suggest you sit a player of McFadden's caliber, but it's definitely a judgment call. If you depend on him, then start him.
