10:53 AM ET 11.15 | The Raiders thought Darren McFadden would miss 2-4 weeks when he initially injured his ankle, according to reports. McFadden suffered a sprained ankle in Week 9 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and has yet to practice since. Raiders head coach Dennis Allen called McFadden "questionable" for Sunday's game against the New Orleans Saints. Allen also reiterated that Marcel Reece will be the Raiders' lead back while both McFadden and Mike Goodson are on the mend. Jeremy Stewart should also see touches, along with Taiwan Jones if he can overcome fumbling issues and improve his understanding of the playbook.

Does that " Commitment To Excellence" sign still hang on the walls of the Raiders complex?

He's now missed 2 weeks, so the article was just confirming they were right?

QUOTE(#1):

He's fragile. It sucks.

Fragile is putting it lightly. This guy hasn't come close to playing a full season. Too bad but it happens sometimes.

With the way the rest of the team is playing, does it really matter? .............. really?
