McFadden to get pain-killing injection

Some interesting injury news prior to Sunday’s games:

Oakland Raiders running back Darren McFadden was spotted Saturday in the same walking boot he had worn throughout the week to battle his turf toe. The plan was to give him a pain-killing injection before the game in the hopes that McFadden can play through the injury. If the injection is successful, McFadden will be in the lineup.

Minnesota plans to hold out wide receiver Sidney Rice, who sprained his right posterior cruciate ligament injury during last Sunday’s loss to the Indianapolis Colts. While the Vikings are not expected to have Rice, they are expected to have wide receiver Bernard Berrain, who is nursing a toe injury.

Colts left tackle Tony Ugoh is expected to miss the next two games with a groin injury, though Indianapolis is hoping he can return next Sunday. Charlie Johnson will start in Ugoh’s place Sunday versus the Jacksonville Jaguars.
