Darren McFadden Injury: Oakland running back questionable with leg injury

Darren McFadden has suffered a leg injury in the Raiders' game against the Buccaneers, and he's questionable to return.

Oakland Raiders running back Darren McFadden has left his team's game against the Tampa Buccaneers with a leg injury and his return is questionable, the team announced. The Raiders were trailing 7-3 and McFadden is by far their best offensive player, so his injury would make coming back all the more difficult. However, the team responded with a nice drive capped by a touchdown by Rod Streater, so they now lead 10-7

McFadden was taken to the locker room and reportedly had his leg X-rayed, after which he was downgraded to doubtful. Taking his place is likely to be Mike Goodson, supported by Taiwan Jones, but you have to figure that Carson Palmer will be throwing more while McFadden is sidelined.

Before he went down, McFadden had run seven times for 17 yards and had 2 receptions for three receiving yards. Entering Sunday, he had 438 rushing yards, 190 receiving yards and 2 touchdowns on the season.
