With Darren McFadden out of the game after sustaining a right leg injury, backup running back Mike Goodson was thrust into a major role. It didn't last long, however, as the Texas A&M product followed in the unfortunate footsteps of McFadden by leaving the game.

Goodson, who had no yards rushing on two carries but six receptions for 52 yards, hurt his ankle and the Raiders announced he would not return to the game.

Goodson and McFadden weren't the only casualties. Safety Matt Giordano made a last-ditch effort to stop Tampa Bay running back Doug Martin on his second touchdown run of the day, but failed to stop him and slipped. The Raiders announced that Giordano had a hamstring injury and would not return.
