The Oakland Raiders have serious injury issues that are keeping them from becoming whole as a unit. Chief among them is the status of Darren McFadden and Jacoby Ford, which still remains pretty much in limbo. Without them in the Raiders lineup, it's hard to get a read on how good Oakland can be on the road against Minnesota.
McFadden seems to be making progress to returning to action on the field, but at the very best it's looking like a 40-60 proposition that he plays on Sunday. Ford also seems to be a bit off from returning to action himself, so it's looking like you might have to wait awhile before you can count on either player. Fantasy football owners are best served looking elsewhere for capable replacement options, whereever you can find them.
Here's a list of the remaining Raiders injuries.
DID NOT PARTICIPATE IN PRACTICE: QB Jason Campbell (collarbone), WR Jacoby Ford (foot), K Sebastian Janikowski (left hamstring), CB Chris Johnson (groin, hamstring), RB Darren McFadden (foot), DT Richard Seymour (knee), RB Manase Tonga (knee)
