Darren McFadden To Miss Thursday Exhibition Game Due To Hamstring Injury

Oakland Raiders runningback Darren McFadden will miss Thursday night’s exhibition game in Dallas due to a hamstring injury according to the Associated Press.

“It’s very frustrating,” McFadden said Tuesday. “I feel like I’ve been having a good camp. It happened. It’s just something you have to deal with right now.”

McFadden hurt his hamstring in practice Saturday morning when he tried to accelerate after slowing down. He immediately felt tightness so he pulled up to make sure the injury didn’t get any worse.

McFadden said he wants to make sure he waits until the hamstring is completely healed before returning to the field so he doesn’t have to deal with this throughout the entire season.
