Darren McFadden was limited in practice for the second straight day, but it doesn't sound like anything serious. We break down the fantasy implications.

Oakland Raiders RB Darren McFadden (shoulder) was limited in practice for the second day in a row Thursday, reports Paul Gutierrez of CSN Bay Area. McFadden was also limited in Wednesday's practice with what's only being described as a shoulder injury. McFadden had 113 rushing yards and a TD in Oakland's Week 3 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Fantasy Impact: The team is mum right now, so we'll have to wait for Friday's injury reports for more info, but it sounds like they're just resting their injury-prone star after giving him 20 touches last week. DMC has had a slow start to the season, but his Week 3 performance was reassuring to fantasy owners and he should be starting every week.
