Raiders RB Darren McFadden should be 'fine' after possible re-injury

Oakland Raiders running back Darren McFadden @dmcfadden20 is expected to be "fine" after appearing to re-injure his ankle late during Oakland's loss on Thursday night. "He was walking around fine," according to head coach Dennis Allen. "Didnt' have a lot of pain. I don't think it's an injury that is going to keep him out any time." Other reports about McFadden's ankle stated it was only "tweaked" and "not as serious" as it was when he first injured it over a month ago. McFadden is expected to play in Week 15 against the Kansas City Chiefs.

Fantasy Analysis:

What would a Raiders game be without a McFadden injury? The former Arkansas Razorback accounted for 64 toal yards and a score in a relatively successful fantasy performance. The Raiders are looking like they'll have a Top 5 pick in the 2013 NFL Draft with their 3-10 record. McFadden owners shouldn't be too concerned and if plays against Kansas City, he's worth a start. The Chiefs have been awful against the run, ranking 26th in rush yards allowed per game (129.3).
