DARREN MCFADDEN IS BACK WITH THE OAKLAND RAIDERS
Mon, 21 May 2012 10:42 PM EDT

Darren McFadden is back on the training field after overcoming a foot injury that derailed his 2011 season and last Tuesday announced himself “full speed ahead.”

McFadden was off to a fast start last season before suffering a Lisfranc injury that cost him the final 9 games of the season and was a huge reason why the Oakland Raiders missed the playoffs. He led the NFL with 610 yards rushing through 6 games and felt he had a shot at a 1,800-yard season. He also added 129 yards receiving and scored 5 total touchdowns as the Raiders opened the season 4-2.

He announced that his objective for the 2012 season remains to get to the 1,800-yard record. NFL betting lines

“I was looking to get to 1,800 rushing yards, but it didn’t work out that way,” McFadden said. “I will keep pushing for it this year and with a little bit of luck get to those goals.”

McFadden wounded his right foot last season catching a pass early in the 1st quarter Oct. 23 against Kansas City. McFadden stated that he initially didn’t assume the injury was that serious but that it started to feel far worse the day after. The Raiders originally described the injury as a sprained foot and designated him week-to-week before it was discovered he had a much more serious injury.

“It was one of those things where you simply hated it,” McFadden claimed. “Week after week you’re trying to get out there, and you can’t get out there because your foot won’t let you. One of those deals, you have got to just keep going, keep pushing for it. Injuries like that take a load of time to heal up, so it is not something you can just get back out there on too soon.”

McFadden asserted it took till early April till he could start running again and now he has no limitations. He’s been running full speed and making cuts on the foot, showing indicators of what he can bring to the Raiders offense this season if he can stay healthy.

That’s always been the biggest question for McFadden, who has missed 19 games in his 1st four seasons with foot, toe, shoulder, knee and hamstring injuries. Notwithstanding that history, McFadden disagrees with the concept that he is injury prone.

“Everyone has their own opinion, therefore for me; I’m just going out there playing, going hard. If I am getting hurt, so be it,” he said. “I could see if it was just going down the road, falling over, getting hurt, that’s different, but I’m out there playing hard when I get hurt.”

QB Carson Palmer, who didn’t get to play with McFadden last season, is eventually getting to glimpse what McFadden can bring to the Raiders’ offense.

“That’s the hardest thing for me now is you would like to watch him ’cause he’s so electrifying and he can do such a big amount of different things,” Palmer claimed. “But I’ve a job on bootlegs and that kind of thing and I need to confirm I get him the ball and then boot, but getting him on the field is just something the defense has to key on and really target, and it’s been great to work with.”
