Darren McFadden missed practice for a second straight day on Thursday for the Oakland Raiders, according to Vic Tafur of the San Francisco Chronicle. McFadden is dealing with a high ankle sprain suffered in Week 9 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
McFadden hasn't officially been ruled out for Sunday's game against the New Orleans Saints, but reports earlier in the day citing sources close to the team indicated that the running back will miss another 2-4-weeks.
Fantasy Impact: Check Friday's injury report just in case, but expect McFadden to sit this week. As a result, fullback Marcel Reece becomes much more valuable. Reece was already a heavy target in the passing game, but a healthy dose of carries could make him a solid RB2 over the final stretch of the regular season.
