Darren McFadden Injury Update: Darren McFadden Misses Walk-Through, 100% Out This Thursday

Well if there was any question as to whether of not Oakland Raiders running back Darren McFadden would be suiting up against the San Diego Chargers this Thursday, it has been answered by Raiders insider Steve Corkran via Twitter:

Darren McFadden not part of walk-through. He won't be playing Thursday.

This will mark the second straight game that McFadden has missed due to his ankle injury, third if you count the five minutes he played against the Kansas City Chiefs. DMC has been spending most of the week in a protective boot and didn't participate at all in any practices the last three weeks including the bye, though hopefully is getting better as the Raiders sorely need him back. 

Look for Michael Bush to get the start once again for the Silver and Black, with rookie Taiwan Jones serving as backup/change of pace back. They're going to need to give all they've got against a hungry San Diego squad in front of an always raucous Qualcomm Stadium crowd this Thursday night.
