Darren McFadden has been officially ruled out of Sunday’s game against the Denver Broncos. Despite the Raiders having a bye last week, McFadden and the team’s trainers do not believe that McFadden’s sprained foot is ready to carry the load in week 9.
McFadden is ranked 8th in rushing average with 87.7 yards per game. He was lost early in the first quarter in week 7 when the Raiders played Kansas City.
Without McFadden, the team will rely on Michael Bush. Against the Chiefs, Bush had 99 rushing yards on 17carries.
The Broncos are prepared for Bush who is a down-the-field runner that will pound the middle.
Bush has a career average of 4.4 yards per carry and 17 career touchdowns.
