Raiders vs.Saints injury report: McFadden misses practice, Sproles back

Cary Emondson-US PRESSWIRE

Running back Darren McFadden was held out of Oakland Raiders practice on Wednesday with an ankle sprain. Meanwhile, New Orleans running back Darren Sproles returned.

Oakland Raiders running back Darren McFadden missed Wednesday's practice with a high ankle sprain, according to the team's injury report, and that doesn't bode well with a rising New Orleans Saints team coming to town.

Defensive back Matt Giordano (concussion), safety Tyvon Branch (neck), running back Mike Goodson (ankle) and defensive tackle Richard Seymour (knee/hamstring) also did not participate. McFadden and Goodson both suffered high ankle sprains from Week 9 that caused them to miss last week's 55-20 loss to the Baltimore Ravens. Seymour also missed last week's game.

As for the Saints, running back Darren Sproles returned to practice in a limited capacity on Wednesday. He was recovering from a hand surgery a few weeks back, and The Times-Picayune reports that interim coach Joe Vitt said the running back was "full-go" despite his label on the injury report.

Saints defensive end Junior Galette did not practice with a bum ankle, and neither did cornerback Corey White, who was out with a knee injury.

In addition, New Orleans wide receiver Courtney Roby was limited in practice with a shoulder problem.
