Oakland Raiders running backs Darren McFadden and Mike Goodson continued to be held out of practice Thursday due to their high ankle sprains, while Taiwan Jones, who’s also nursing an ankle injury, was limited in practice.
Considering McFadden and Goodson have yet to return to the practice field, they seem unlikely candidates to play this weekend against the Cincinnati Bengals.
Jones added to the team’s list of ailing running backs when he exited last weekend’s game against the New Orleans Saints with his ankle injury. If he’s unable to play this weekend the Raiders would be left with only two healthy backs on their roster, Marcel Reece and Jeremy Stewart.
Other notable players to miss practice yesterday for the Raiders include defensive lineman Richard Seymour (hamstring) and Jack Crawford (toe) and wide receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey (hamstring).
