With a semi-firm grip on first place in the AFC West, the Oakland Raiders are going to need all hands on deck to maintain their status atop the heap. Unfortunately for them, Darren McFadden and Jacoby Ford missed practice once again on Wednesday, increasing the probability that neither will be suiting up for the Silver and Black this weekend.
According to Raiders insider Steve Corkran on Twitter, both speedy Raiders did not participate in Wednesday practice. Run DMC's status is the most troubling here as he hasn't practiced since way back on Oct. 23, and if he doesn't start practicing by Thursday, there basically isn't a chance that he'll be playing this Sunday, marking the third straight game that he has missed completely.
As for Ford, he still believes his injury isn't as bad as McFadden's, and will have to wait until Thursday as well as to see if he can play this weekend or not.
