Darren McFadden, Jacoby Ford Injury Update: Oakland Raiders RB, WR Out For Vikings Game

The Oakland Raiders will be without a couple of key players in Sunday's game against the Minnesota Vikings. Fortunately for the Raiders, this may actually end up being good news.

According to Jerry McDonald of Inside Bay Area, running back Darren McFadden and wide receiver Jacoby Ford will both sit out the game against the Vikings, against whom the Raiders are favored. Taking McFadden's place is Michael Bush, who has been on fire lately. Taiwan Jones will act as his backup and likely get a handful of carries, but Bush is expected to be the main rusher for the Raiders on Sunday.

On the wide receiver front, Ford will be replaced by rookie Denarius Moore, who turned some heads last week and is looking to put up some more impressive numbers. Considering that Vikings CB Antoine Winfield is out for the year, the Minnesota secondary is looking a bit thin, and Moore will be looking to take advantage.
