Raiders' McFadden, Goodson have high ankle sprains
The Oakland Raiders may be looking for help in the backfield this week as Darren McFadden and Mike Goodson both have high ankle sprains, according to Paul Gutierrez of Comcast SportsNet California.
McFadden left Sunday's game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the first quarter. X-Rays done after the game came back negative and was scheduled to have an MRI on Monday after recording seven carries for 17 yards. Goodson, McFadden's backup, left the game in the fourth quarter after injuring his ankle on a 12 yard catch.
With both players' status for Sunday currently unknown, second year back Taiwan Jones would stand to take over first team duties if neither McFadden nor Goodson can play and a transaction isn't made. Though the Raiders have questioned his ability to hold on to the football.
