The Oakland Raiders face the Chicago Bears on Sunday afternoon as they hope to end Chicago's five-game winning streak, but they'll be doing so without star running back Darren McFadden. The 24-year-old former first-round pick was exceptional for Oakland early in the season, rushing for 610 yards and 4 touchdowns over the team's first six games.
Here's the full Oakland inactives list, via the team's official Twitter feed:
- RB Darren McFadden
- QB Jason Campbell
- WR Jacoby Ford
- WR Denarius Moore
- RB Taiwan Jones
- DE Jarvis Moss
- OG Bruce Campbell
The team has certainly missed McFadden, but it's worth noting that the Raiders' rushing offense hasn't really skipped a beat. Back-up Michael Bush has started recently, and he's ran for 461 yards over the past four weeks in McFadden's absence. Oakland's third in the NFL in rushing yards per game, so expect Chicago to be challenged there.
