OAKLAND (CBS/AP) – Oakland Raiders star running back Darren McFadden will not play Sunday against Denver because of a sprained right foot.

Coach Hue Jackson also said Friday that kicker Sebastian Janikowski is questionable with a hamstring injury, linebacker Rolando McClain is questionable with a sprained ankle, and safety Michael Huff is questionable with an ankle injury.

Watch the Raiders live on CBS 5 at 1 p.m. Sunday – or listen to the game on KFRC 1550 AM or Live 105 FM.  

McFadden has been one of the top backs in the league this season with 614 yards rushing and 19 receptions. The Raiders will turn to Michael Bush and rookie Taiwan Jones to make up for his absence.

Bush ran for 99 yards on 17 carries in Oakland’s most recent game against Kansas City two weeks ago after McFadden left with the injury in the first quarter.
