Darren McFadden Injury Update: Raiders RB Out Vs. Broncos

The Oakland Raiders will be without starting running back Darren McFadden when they take on the Denver Broncos. McFadden was officially ruled out, as he's still dealing with a foot injury. The Raiders could use McFadden's explosive running ability against the Broncos while Carson Palmer is still settling back into playing football.

In place of McFadden, the Raiders will start Michael Bush. Bush hasn't exactly been the epitome of health, so expect rookie running back Taiwan Jones to also get some touches in the game. Jones will likely play on passing downs with Bush getting most of the short yardage and goal line carries. If you need a spot starter and he's not being held on another team's bench, Bush should be a good play against the Broncos rush defense.
