Marcel Reece (knee) was limited in practice on Wednesday. He suffered a knee injury on Sunday and did not return.
The good news is that an MRI on Reece's knee came back negative. He's unlikely to miss much time, but he could be questionable to play against the Chargers on Sunday night.
Darren McFadden doesn't have a timetable to return, which suggests he won't be suiting up for Week 5's home game. The Raiders were without DMC for a large chunk of last season and they really leaned on Reece to fill the void.
Reece had two 100-yard receiving games last season with the Raiders and he'll be a popular option for Terrelle Pryor on third down. What's more, the Raiders don't have many reliable options at tight end and receiver in the passing game.
Fantasy impact: Being limited is a good sign that he'll play since even healthy players sit out of Wednesday practices. This is a big hit to Rashad Jennings and he will likely have to share the load. If Reece is still sitting out there on your wire, you might want to grab him right now.
