It looks like the Oakland Raiders are on the verge of having the centerpiece of their offense back.
Raiders coach Dennis Allen said he has heard positive evaluations from his strength and conditioning coaches regarding the health of running back Darren McFadden, who suffered a season-ending Lisfranc injury in Week 7.
"I am told that he's back and ready to go," Allen said, according to the San Francisco Chronicle.
McFadden said Wednesday he is "feeling pretty good" and doesn't plan to change his aggressive running style following the injury.
The fourth-year veteran ran for 614 yards on 113 carries last season before injuring his foot.
