The Oakland Raiders will again use Rashad Jennings over Darren McFadden

McFadden has been paid $60.1 million to watch the Raiders.

Oakland Raiders head coach Dennis Allen “isn’t sure” how running back Darren McFadden is faring in his rehab.

The 26-year-old McFadden reaggravated his balky hamstring on November 3 in a 49-20 blowout loss to the Philadelphia Eagles and hasn’t returned since.

A longstanding gimp, McFadden’s carried the ball 98 times for 352 yards and four touchdowns over seven games.

DMC, who is able to complete the 40-yard dash in 4.33 seconds, has also caught 13 passes for 85 yards.

Oakland’s battling the San Diego Chargers for the basement in the AFC West and fielding the league’s 26th ranked offense.

Although not exactly brimming with weapons, a healthy McFadden is talented enough to help the Raiders (4-6) remain competitive.

Unfortunately, in the final season of a six-year deal worth $60.1 million, McFadden has proven to be a human chandelier.

Hence, Rashad Jennings will surely again substitute for the former barroom brawler this weekend versus the Tennessee Titans.

Football is a collision sport and it’s unfair to criticize a player for getting injured.

Still, considering McFadden’s history, Reggie McKenzie and every other NFL general manager should ignore the brittle runner as a free agent this March.

Darren McFadden is having another unimpressive autumn and deserves to lose millions of dollars in the springtime.
