Darren McFadden Injury: Raiders RB Leaves With Lower Body Injury

In the midst of a monster game against the New York Jets, Oakland Raiders running back Darren McFadden has unfortunately left the game in the fourth quarter with a lower body injury, according to sources.

It looks like something to do with his right leg, possibly his knee, though that is unclear at the moment. McFadden has racked up 171 rushing yards on 19 carries at the sold-out Coliseum already, as well as two touchdowns. He had been having some problems with a sore shoulder but that seems to be completely unrelated to this injury. 

Michael Bush has come in to replace McFadden, and it is still uncertain if he is possible for return. With a ten point lead at the moment he likely will stay on the sideline, much to the chagrin of Raider fans and fantasy owners alike. Hopefully it won't be anything too serious, because Run DMC has become the spearhead of this Silver and Black offense.
