Darren McFadden re-injures ankle in Raiders' loss to Broncos

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

Oakland Raiders running back Darren McFadden re-injured his ankle in the loss to the Denver Broncos on Thursday.

Darren McFadden, the Oakland Raiders' running back who has never played more than 13 games in any given NFL season, re-injured his sprained right ankle Thursday against the Denver Broncos. McFadden left the 26-13 Denver win late in the game and there is no update on his status as of Friday morning.

McFadden missed the previous four games with the high ankle sprain he suffered against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Nov. 4, as noted by Paul Gutierrez of CSN Bay Area.

Asked about the injury, coach Dennis Allen said he wasn't sure where the injury occurred as the team was just coming off the field, but that he was more concerned with injuries in the secondary.

That's likely due to the fact that McFadden has been ineffective this year. He's averaging a career-low 5.4 yards per carry, and has just 507 rushing yards on the season. He dropped his first touch of the game on Thursday, a pass across the middle. McFadden carried the ball for 52 yards off of 11 carries, with one of those being a 36-yard rush in the third quarter.
