Darren McFadden does not practice, likely to miss Week 12

Although Oakland Raiders running back Darren McFadden is ‘getting closer‘ to a return, it’s not likely to happen in Week 12 as the former Razorback remained out of practice yet again as he recovers from a nagging hamstring injury.

According to Scott Bair, it ‘looks like’ McFadden will miss his third straight game:

Another day without McFadden. Looks like he misses another game. #Raiders

The oft-injured McFadden has become an irritation to many in Raider Nation and given the production the team has received from Rashad Jennings in replacement, the team hasn’t felt much of a loss on the field. If anything, the results have been more productive as Jennings has amassed 340 rushing yards in the past three contests.

Oakland is scheduled to host the Tennessee Titans in Week 12, though, will only have a few days between games as they travel to Dallas just a few days later where they’ll play the Cowboys on Thanksgiving. There’s currently no word on if the team feels McFadden will improve enough to be ready for the November 28th game.
