Raiders' McFadden uncertain for Week 6

The Sports NetworkOctober 11, 2013 

Alameda, CA ( - Oakland Raiders running back Darren McFadden practiced for a third straight day on Friday, though his status for this weekend's game at Kansas City remains up in the air.

The Raiders listed McFadden, who hurt his hamstring in a Week 4 matchup against Washington and sat out last Sunday's 27-17 win over San Diego as a result, as questionable on the final injury report. The former first-round pick did take part in all three practices during the week, however, albeit on a limited basis.

Backup Rashad Jennings, who sustained a hamstring strain of his own in the San Diego game, is also questionable for Sunday's clash against the Chiefs. Fullback Marcel Reece (knee) is probable to play.

Oakland did declare safety Tyvon Branch, center Stefen Wisniewski and rookie offensive tackle Menelik Watson out for Sunday's tilt.

Branch will miss a fourth consecutive game with an ankle injury, while Wisniewski also sat out last week's victory after spraining his knee against Washington. Watson has yet to return from a preseason knee scope.

Offensive tackle Tony Pashos (groin) was termed questionable for this week after also being held out against San Diego.
