04:18 AM ET 12.07 | Raiders fans were waiting for the return of Darren McFadden on Thursday night and they got it. McFadden scored a touchdown and got the Raiders into their matchup against the Denver Broncos, but the comeback tour was short lived. Despite starting and scoring, McFadden wasn't able to finish the game and the full extent of his new injury isn't known. At the time of his injury, the game was all Denver's at that point, so his return would have been a meaningless risk. McFadden is entering the last year of his contract next season, and if it's anything like his previous two injury riddled seasons, McFadden won't be seeing the kind of money he's counting on the bench at the moment.

Cut the whole team and fire the whole staff. Forfeit all the games. When fans get to the stadium, have 3 hours of cheerleaders and free beer.

Save money. Make the fans happy. And it won't hurt their record this season a bit.

this guy killed me in fantasy football. I'll never autodraft again.

I feel your pain. My one and only auto-draft league (which I'd quit if it weren't run by a friend) gave me Ryan Matthews as my RB1.

Does this news really deserve 2 threads ?

Jamarcus Russell and Darren McFadden- what a pair. Now we can after a season and a half declare that even the Carson Palmer trade has to go down as one of the all time biggest blunders.
