Something Raider Nation has been waiting for may just come at the right time. The young guns of the Raiders offense are expected to return this week against the Packers, wide receiver Denarius Moore (ankle), wide receiver Jacoby Ford (foot) and running back Taiwan Jones (hamstring) all are anticipated to be back in uniform come Sunday in Lambeau field.
However, their star power back Darren McFadden, has exceeded 100 rushing yards in a single game only twice this season and hasn’t seen the field of play since going down with an injury in Week 7 in the 28-0 shellacking against the Kansas City Chiefs.
The best-case scenario is for McFadden to come back in Week 15 with a high-stakes battle against the Detroit Lions(7-5). Coach Hue Jackson remains optimistic for his return. On Monday, Jackson was asked if McFadden would be out for the rest of the regular season.
“I don’t think so. I think he’ll be back, I really do. When that is, I don’t have an answer.”
Raiders may have looked horrible Sunday against Miami, but believe me with the help of the offensive weapons missing in action last game the Raiders could storm into Green Bay with a victory.
