Raiders RB Rashad Jennings practices, but RB Darren McFadden is hurt again

Running back Rashad Jennings @RashadJennings was cleared for limited practice Wednesday, just six days after taking a knee to the back of the head and suffering a concussion against the Cowboys. And Jennings' quick recovery is extremely important for the Raiders, who probably don't know which running back would replace him if he suffers a setback. Darren McFadden @dmcfadden20 picked up an ankle injury during that Thanksgiving game and is injured "more than we initially thought," according to head coach Dennis Allen. Allen added that he hopes to have McFadden back on the field soon, but doesn't know when that will actually happen.
Third-string running back Jeremy Stewart @J_Stew32 also didn't practice Wednesday. He injured a knee during the Cowboys game.

Fantasy Analysis:

Of course McFadden suffers an ankle injury after five carries in his first game back from a three-game layoff due to a strained hamstring. Of course he does.
Things are looking good for Jennings right now, but he still has to clear some hurdles and make it through the week without suffering any post-concussion symptoms. He would be an RB2 against the Jets in Week 14.
