Raiders Vs. Broncos Injury Report: Darren McFadden Out, Sebastian Janikowski Questionable

The Raiders look to get the ship righted this week but will have to do so without running back Darren McFadden, who has been declared out for Sunday's matchup with the Denver Broncos. McFadden hurt his foot two weeks ago in the Raiders loss to Kansas City and he did not practice at all during the bye week. Taking his place and getting the start will be Michael Bush. It's a familiar position for the 4th year running back, he noted, "I have been in this situation for four years now. It's all the same. I just know when it's my turn to play I need to take care of my opportunities."

Raiders Coach Hue Jackson doesn't seem too worried about running with Bush though, "He's in a tough spot. He plays behind arguably, in my opinion, one of the best running backs in this league. But I think Bush is a really, really good player himself. It's good when you have two of them in case one can't go, you have one you can lean on. I think he's done some really good things this year. He has big-game capability. He knows how to play. You've seen it here during his career here, and if he has to play I feel very comfortable with him playing."

Also out for the Raiders are Jason Campbell and Chris Johnson, and Michael Huff and Sebastian Janikoswki are questionable. If Seabass is unable to go, and that becomes apparent on Saturday, the Raiders have kicker Dave Rayner on speed dial.
