ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) -- Oakland running back Darren McFadden is active for the first time since straining a hamstring Nov. 3 and is set to play against Dallas.

McFadden was expected to share playing time Thursday with Rashad Jennings, who has the most yards from scrimmage in the league the past four weeks.

Raiders offensive tackle Jared Veldheer is active for the first time in 2013 after tearing his left triceps in the preseason.

Cowboys linebackers Sean Lee and Justin Durant, cornerback Morris Claiborne and receiver/kick returner Dwayne Harris were all ruled out against the Raiders on Wednesday with hamstring injuries.

Lee and Durant are missing their second straight games, while Claiborne and Harris were injured last week against the New York Giants.
