The Darren McFadden return wait is wearing on everyone, including Phil Simms who went ahead and told the CBS broadcast audience on Sunday that McFadden could be out for the season.
But Oakland Raiders coach Hue Jackson, who is a teeny bit closer to the situation than Simms is, disagrees.
'No," Jackson said. "And it's not a season-ender. I mean, that's what we said - it's a sprained foot, Lisfranc, whatever you want to call it. Basically the same thing. I think Darren will be back before the season's over. And when we get him back, we'll get him back."
The NFL already saw one star go down due to a Lisfranc injury as it is the same injury that ended Houston Texans quarterback Matt Schaub's season. McFadden has not played since early in the Raiders Oct. 23rd contest against the Kansas City Chiefs.
