Oakland Raiders running back Darren McFadden is walking on his injured right ankle without issue, according to head coach Dennis Allen via CSN Bay Area's Paul Gutierrez.

"Darren, today, seemed like he was going to be O.K.," said Allen. "He was walking around fine, didn't have a lot of pain so, I don't think it's an injury that's going to keep him out any time."

McFadden injured his ankle on Thursday night in the Raiders' 26-13 loss to the Denver Broncos at home. He rushed for 52 yards on 11 carries, 36 of which came from one run. He scored a touchdown on a six-yard reception. On the season, he has 150 carries for for 507 yards and two touchdowns. He's added 33 receptions for 202 yards and one touchdown in the passing game.

The 3-10 Raiders have struggled to run the ball and rank 31st in the league in rushing yards, averaging just 81.2 yards per game.
