While the Raiders coaches haven't given any word on Darren McFadden's status, his teammates seem to believe he will be ready for action when Sunday rolls around. Oakland's No. 1 running back hasn't played since Week 9.
McFadden hasn't started practicing yet, so he will have to show progress before getting on the field in Week 13.
Fantasy Impact: Teammates often seem optimistic about the players around them. It's hard to put too much stock into what a few Raiders have to say. Still, if McFadden has looked better moving around, they would be the ones to know.
He needs to practice to some extent this week to suit up against Cleveland. The Raiders injury report later this week should give a good indication of his status.
