Darren McFadden, RB, Raiders: McFadden played in Week 3 despite suffering a turf toe injury the week before. He was not at his best, and appeared to have trouble with his footing on the turf. Whether that was attributable to his toe at all is uncertain, but he did wear a stiffer shoe to help support the toe, which does alter the ability to push off.

This week, McFadden was rested on Wednesday, then returned to practice on a limited basis Thursday; he is still not fully healed. But Justin Fargas is out with his still-healing groin injury (look for him to potentially return following the Raiders' Week 5 bye) and McFadden is again expected to start, despite the questionable designation. Michael Bush will no doubt get some work to spell McFadden, and given that he is not at full health, there is risk that McFadden exits early. Nonetheless, he is lined up to get the bulk of the work as of now.

"McFadden (toe) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Chargers.

Spin: McFadden may not be 100 percent, but he'll do what he can, especially with Justin Fargas out. Michael Bush also figures to be in the mix Sunday and to what extend likely hinges on how well McFadden holds up. " [breaking News] RotoWire | Sun, September 28
