Raiders running back Darren McFadden left Sunday’s game against Tampa Bay with what the team is calling a leg injury. Specifically, McFadden injured his lower right leg area in the second quarter of the game.

He was first listed as questionable for return, but later was downgraded to doubtful to return and headed to the locker room for x-rays. According to csnbayarea.com Fox, who hosted the game on their network, x-rays were negative, but McFadden was ruled out for the game.

McFadden was averaging just 24 yards per rush and  struggling mightily before leaving. Mike Goodson asusmed the role as the every-down bak after McFadden departed. Goodson would be a solid fantasy pickup if news breaks that McFadden is expected to miss any time.
