Oakland Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie says McFadden remains a big part of the organization despite coming off perhaps his worst season as a pro.||||||| McKenzie spoke to beat reporters Thursday for the first time since Nov. 30 and looked back at a disappointing first season in Oakland and ahead to the future. McFadden struggled under the zone blocking system of the previous coordinator, Greg Knapp, who was fired after the season. McFadden averaged a career-low 3.3 yards per carry after toping 5 yards per carry the previous two seasons in Hue Jackson's power-running system.
Posted Dec. 17, 2012
McFadden gained 110 yards on a career high-tying 30 carries in Sunday's 15-0 win over Kansas City.||||||| It was the third 100-yard game this season for the Oakland Raiders running back, who has gained 617 in 10 contests. He's gained less than 55 in six contests this season and less than 35 in four games. McFadden has 293 yards over the past four games and gained 114 in Kansas City on Oct. 28.

McFadden and Mike Goodson are returning to the field for the Oakland Raiders after missing the previous four games with sprained right ankles.||||||| Both McFadden and Goodson are active for Thursday night's game against Denver for the first since getting hurt Nov. 4 against Tampa Bay.
Posted Nov. 09, 2012
The Oakland Raiders will be without their top two running backs for Sunday's game in Baltimore after McFadden and Mike Goodson missed a third consecutive day of practice.||||||| Both players suffered high ankle sprains in last week's loss to Tampa Bay and have been wearing walking boots since then.
Posted Nov. 05, 2012
With top two running backs McFadden and Mike Goodson slowed this week by sprained right ankles, the Raiders may need to rely on their passing game when they visit the Baltimore Ravens.||||||| Palmer threw the ball 61 times last week against Tampa Bay as the Raiders (3-5) were forced to play catch-up in the second half after losing McFadden and Goodson to the injuries. Neither back practiced Wednesday and their status remains in doubt for Sunday's game against the Ravens (2-6).
