Darren McFadden, Rashad Jennings expected to play

The Raiders had a pair of questionable running backs on their Friday injury report and it looks like things have broken the right way for both of them.

Stacey Dales of NFL Network reports that Darren McFadden and Rashad Jennings are both going to be in the lineup in Kansas City on Sunday. The Raiders will be trying to hand the Chiefs their first loss of the season while extending their own winning streak at Arrowhead Stadium to seven straight games.

McFadden, no stranger to game-time decisions over the course of his career, did not play in last week’s victory over the Chargers and remained limited in practice this week with a hamstring injury. Jennings is also battling a hamstring injury suffered while filling in for McFadden last Sunday.

The two players have combined for 332 rushing yards so far this season and are gaining just over four yards per carry. Having them healthy should allow the Raiders to resist putting too much on Terrelle Pryor’s plate against a strong Kansas City defense.

    Can’t remember the last time Raiders-Chiefs could wear what looks like the “good game” label. Oakland should give KC all that they can handle.

    I thought McFadden’s annual five week vacation started last week.

    This will be a very defensive low scoring game. The Raiders running game and TP’s mobility will tire-out KC’s defense. Raiders win this one is a hard fought battle.
