Raiders vs. Browns injury report: Darren McFadden, rest of Raider RBs back at practice

Peter Aiken

After missing three games, Oakland running backs Darren McFadden and Mike Goodson return to practice

Week 9's game against Tampa Bay was a disaster for the Raiders from an injury standpoint. In that game, Oakland lost their top two running backs on the depth chart and defensive tackle Richard Seymour. The running backs - Darren McFadden and Mike Goodson - have returned to practice after suffering ankle injures against the Bucs. Seymour, however, missed practice again on Wednesday and looks doubtful for Week 13.

Complicating the Raiders running back situation was an ankle injury to Taiwan Jones, who filled in for McFadden and Goodson. The second-year player missed last week's game against Cincinnati, but returned to limited practice on Wednesday. Pass-catching fullback Marcel Reese got most of the work against the Bengals, and he was a full participant in practice with a lingering quad/hamstring injury.

Linebacker Rolando McClain was held out of practice by head coach Dennis Allen for an unknown, team-related reason. McClain is not injured and Allen refused to disclose the reason for the decision to sit him out. McClain has struggled with legal problems, having avoided jail time after allegedly pointing a gun at a man's head.
