Darren McFadden’s load might be lighter when he’s healthy again. The Raiders will run at the same rate, but they might call Rashad Jennings’ number instead. The veteran backup had another productive day playing for McFadden, totaling over 100 yards of offense in a 24-20 road loss to the New York Giants. Jennings had 88 yards on 20 carries and two receptions for 22 yards using a smash-mouth style the Raiders expected from McFadden. The running game hasn’t missed a beat since McFadden strained his hamstring for a second time this season, and it was going strong in the first half especially.
Will Jennings cut into McFadden's carries?
