Darren McFadden returned to Raiders practice Monday after missing just over two weeks with a fractured orbital bone in his eye.
McFadden’s Week 1 status was never in danger, and his primary goal now should be to stay healthy for the duration of preseason. He could be ready for the third exhibition game. McFadden, still just 24 years old, is conservatively projected for 245 carries, 54 receptions, and nine all-purpose scores in the 2011 Rotoworld Draft Guide. He’ll get a lot more if he stays healthy.
