Darren McFadden Injury: Raiders RB Misses Practice

Oakland Raiders running back Darren McFadden was not wearing a protective boot at practice on Wednesday, something that head coach Hue Jackson called "huge progress" in the hopes that McFadden would return for this week's game against the Minnesota Vikings

McFadden continues to make progress from the mid-foot sprain that has kept him out of the Raiders' last two games but has yet to resume practice or workouts.

Jackson refused to comment on how close McFadden was to returning this week but left the door open:

"We have a team of doctors that handle that,'' Jackson said. "They're normally going to tell me when a guy can play and I trust their judgment and what they do. Nobody's been ruled out as of now, so we'll go through the week and see where we're at.''
