The Oakland Tribune reports that the Raiders have ruled out running back Darren McFadden for this Sunday's game against the Eagles.
McFadden suffered a torn meniscus in the team's Oct. 4 loss to the Houston Texans. Head coach Tom Cable said at the time of the injury McFadden would miss two to four weeks. Michael Bush started for McFadden last week against the Giants and had 37 rushing yards on 12 carries and the team's lone touchdown in a 44-7 loss.
A first-round pick in 2008 out of Arkansas, the No. 4 overall selection, McFadden has 146 yards on 47 carries and a touchdown this season. Bush is the team's leading rusher with 157 yards on 42 carries and a pair of scores. In his two injury-plagued seasons, McFadden has 645 rushing yards and five rushing touchdowns. He also has 36 receptions for 338 receiving yards.
Note that in the three wins for the Eagles, no individual rusher has gained more yards than Tampa Bay quarterback Josh Johnson. The mobile QB scrambled five times for 40 yards.
