Raiders Back McFadden Out 2-4 Weeks with Meniuscus Tear

Raiders Chiefs Football
The Raiders already are not very good on offense, and now they are going to be without running back Darren McFadden for 2-4 weeks with a torn meniscus:

Jerry McDonald of the Raiders blog for the Bay Area News Group is reporting via his Twitter page that Oakland Raiders running back Darren McFadden will miss 2-4 weeks due to a meniscus tear in his right knee. McDonald writes, “McFadden out two to four weeks with meniuscus tear, to have surgery, Cornell Green out at least two weeks with calf injury . . .”

McFadden injured his knee during his worst game as a pro, finishing with negative-3 yards rushing on six carries. He is averaging 36.3 yards per game and 3.1 yards per carry this season — far from the production the Raiders expected when they drafted him fourth overall in 2008.
