The Oakland Raiders need to rebound this week in the worst way after being embarrassed last week vs the Philadelphia Eagles and Nick Foles, who rang-up seven touchdown passes against them.
The offense did mange to rack up 560 yards of total offense, but running back Darren McFadden re-tweaked his hamstring in the same spot that he suffered the original injury in Week 4 against the Washington Redskins. Rashad Jennings is in line for the start against the New York Giants this week. Jennings piled up 176 yards and a score after coming in for the oft-injured McFadden, who was unable to practice today:
Raiders running back Rashad Jennings was taking his reps with the first team again Thursday in the absence of Darren McFadden.
But don’t bother trying to get Jennings to wax philosophical about what it’s like going into Sunday’s game against the New York Giants as the likely feature back in Oakland’s offense.
McFadden missed practice again with a hamstring strain, making it likely he won’t play against the Giants at MetLife Stadium.
