Darren McFadden Injury Update: DMC Could Miss A Few More Games, According To Source

As the Oakland Raiders scramble to get healthy to host the Chicago Bears this Sunday, running back Darren McFadden could miss a few more games due to his foot injury, according to NFL Network's Jason La Canfora.

McFadden is still very, very limited in practice after injuring his foot back on Oct. 23 against the Kansas City Chiefs, and hasn't seen a second of game time since. According to La Canfora, a source close to the situation said McFadden playing this week simply isn't an option for the Raiders, and is a long shot for him to suit up next week as well. 

The Silver and Black haven't placed a timeline on the injury or when he may likely return, though some teammates expect to possibly see him in action Week 14 against the Green Bay Packers.

For now fourth-year backup Michael Bush will continue to fill in nicely for Oakland, rushing for 599 yards (4.3 yards per carry) as well as five touchdowns this year.
