    Raiders now have three injured running backs

    Link: Raiders now have three injured running backs - Silver And Black Pride

    Darren McFadden and Mike Goodson are still not practicing with their high ankle sprains. Now Taiwan Jones has joined them on the injured list.

    Jones left Sunday's game against the Saints with an ankle injury which left the Raiders with just two healthy running backs-Marcel Reece and Jeremy Stewart. Jones was back at practice on Wednesday and wasn't listed on the injury report. But that ankle injury has flared up causing him to be limited in practice on Thursday.

    The team opted not to sign a running back when McFadden and Goodson went out and instead called up practice squad rookie, Jeremy Stewart. But if Jones is unable to play on Sunday, the team will be back to just Reece and Stewart again.

    Also added to the injury list Thursday was defensive end Jack Crawford who did not practice with a toe injury. The other change was Denarius Moore, who was limited on Wednesday, was removed from the injured list.

    Also not practicing again was Richard Seymour (hamstring, knee). Limited was Tyvon Branch (neck), Darrius Heyward-Bey (hamstring), and Brandon Myers (shoulder).

    Jones is as injury prone as McFadden. Why is he still on the roster? A tough,durable rb should be on Reggie's offseason list. Someone to share carries with Reece.

    When I watched the Tampa Bay game, all I kept thinking was the field although new look like crap. Guys were sliding all over the place, so I think these ankle and foot injuries are due to our grounds keeping crew not making sure the field is in good enough shape on game day. Maybe the team need to adjust their cleats as well during games.

    Raiders now have three injured running backs

    Who's the next Raiders rb after Darren McFadden is no longer a Raider. I just hope he's not injury prone and he's a great back.

    Well then we need to replace him again cause Darren is still Soft and injury prone and now looks like it is contagious to Goodson & Jones too .

    Maybe on the safe side get rid of the strength coach and Darren this off-season .

    how is it that an old man like London Fletcher can be in a walking boot 2 days ago and can still play his 20,000th game in a row, but we can't get a dang player to play everygame. Seriously what percentage of our started have played in every game?
