Darren McFadden's ankle injury will be "fine" according to Oakland Raiders head coach Dennis Allen, Steve Corkran of the Contra Costa Times reports. McFadden suffered the injury during Thursday night's loss to the Denver Broncos.
McFadden missed four games prior to Thursday with another ankle injury, but Allen said that he does not think the running back will miss any time going forward. McFadden had 52 yards rushing on 11 carries against the Broncos.
Fantasy Impact: You will want to check back on practice reports next week, but it sounds like McFadden will be okay. Unfortunately, his fantasy prospects are still rather dim. Unlike Marcel Reece, McFadden hasn't been heavily involved much in the passing game since Week 1 of the regular season. Unless he can produce on the ground, McFadden isn't a very productive fantasy option, and the Raiders often find themselves in too big of a hole on the scoreboard to pound the ball.
