Raiders RB Michael Bush (thumb) was limited in practice Wednesday, coach Tom Cable announced to reporters.
Given the type of injury and Bush’s limited status, Darren McFadden will likely get the majority of carries against the Titans on Sunday. Awesome. McFadden is one of those guys whom you want to play — and let’s be honest, Rock Cartwright is not an option — but you know that you should not.
You would have to have the fortitude of the guys on “Nitro Circus” to even think of playing McFadden. But with the dearth of featured running backs, sometimes you have to make these calls. Personally, I avoid playing Raiders like I have avoided “Glee.” So you guys are on your own with this one. I would keep McFadden on the bench unless you have very limited options. And then, I would look for some more.
