ALAMEDA, Calif. (AP) — Running backs Darren McFadden and Rashad Jennings were back at practice for the Oakland Raiders despite being hampered by hamstring injuries.
McFadden practiced Wednesday for the first time since getting hurt in the first half of a game against Washington on Sept. 29. Jennings was also back at practice after hurting his hamstring in the first half Sunday night against San Diego.
Both players were limited, but coach Dennis Allen says it's encouraging to see them on the field so early in the week.
Getting the running game going this week against Kansas City (5-0) will be a priority for the Raiders (2-3). The Chiefs are 30th in the league allowing 5.3 yards per carry while ranking tops in sacks with 21.
