Darren McFadden, Rashard Mendenhall headline late game NFL inactive lists

Shutdown Corner

Oakland Raiders running back Darren McFadden will miss a fourth consecutive game with an ankle injury. McFadden was injured in a Nov. 4 loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, but still leads the Raiders with 455 yards and two touchdowns on the ground. In addition to McFadden, the Raiders will be without running back Mike Goodson, who also injured an ankle against the Buccaneers. Both players had been listed as "questionable" on the Raiders' final injury report of the week.

Another notable inactive running back is Rashard Mendenhall, who will not play for the Pittsburgh Steelers despite not appearing on the team's injury report this week. Mendenhall fumbled twice, losing one, in a 20-14 loss to the Cleveland Browns last Sunday.
