KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Darren McFadden is good to go. Rashad Jennings is too.

The Raiders will have a full complement of running backs for Sunday morning's game against the Kansas City Chiefs.

McFadden and Jennings were listed as questionable on the team's injury report, but coach Dennis Allen expressed optimism that both backs would play.

It's important that they take advantage of a Chiefs defense ranked No. 21 against the run in a game where time of possession is key.

Receiver Andre Holmes will play for the first game as a Raider after serving a four-game suspension for violating the league's policy on performance-enhancing drugs. This is the first time the Raiders have five receivers active.

The Raiders rendered seven players inactive prior to the game. Strong safety Tyvon Branch, defensive tackle Daniel Muir, defensive lineman Christo Bilukidi, offensive tackle Menelik Watson, outside linebacker Kaluka Maiava, receiver Juron Criner and center Stefen Wisniewski will not play.
