OAKLAND (CBS/AP) – Oakland Raiders running back Darren McFadden and wide receiver Jacoby Ford missed practice Monday, leaving both questionable for this weekend’s game in Minnesota.
The way backups Michael Bush and Denarius Moore played in the Raiders 24-17 win over San Diego last week, it might not matter.
That win, coupled with Denver beating Kansas City, gave Oakland sole possession of first place in the AFC West. It’s the first time since 2002 that the Raiders have had the outright division lead this late in the season.
Three defensive starters were also absent from practice, including defensive tackle Richard Seymour, safety Michael Huff and cornerback DeMarcus Van Dyke.
