Chicago Bears Vs. Oakland Raiders: RB Darren McFadden Likely To Miss At Least 2 Weeks

The Bears will be without their starting quarterback, Jay Cutler, on Sunday against the Raiders, but it appears the Raiders will also still be without their starting running back, Darren McFadden.

Jason La Canfora of is reporting the Oakland Raiders (6-4) will be without running back Darren McFadden for likely two or more weeks:

...McFadden likely will miss at least a few more games while recovering from his foot injury, according to a source with knowledge of the situation.

McFadden still is very limited and unable to do much. The source said playing this week is not feasible for McFadden, and in all likelihood, next week's game is not probable for his return, either.

The Chicago Bears (7-3) travel to Oakland this Sunday to take on the Raiders, who appear poised for their first winning season since 2002. McFadden currently leads the Raiders in rushing yards, tallying over 600 through 7 starts.

Michael Bush has been starting in place of the injured McFadden, putting up a strong 4.3 rushing yards per carry through his 10 games.
