Report: McFadden out vs. Chargers

Raiders running back Darren McFadden will miss his second straight game with a lingering foot injury, according to the NFL Network.

Michael Fabiano tweeted Tuesday afternoon that McFadden will not play against the Chargers.

The Raiders play on short rest Thursday in San Diego, where head coach Hue Jackson will lean on Michael Bush and Taiwan Jones, as he did last Sunday against the Broncos. In McFadden's absence, Bush ran for 96 yards on 19 carries while Jones only rushed twice for one yard.

McFadden was leading the league in rushing heading into the Raiders' game against Kansas City on Oct. 23 but could not finish the contest.

For the season, the 4th overall pick in 2008 has 113 carries for 614 yards and four touchdowns. He also has caught 19 balls for 154 yards and another touchdown.

Del Rio’s anxiety level up with trio of Raiders going extreme in New Zealand

Raiders Pro Bowl left guard Kelechi Osemele, running back Taiwan Jones and safety Brynden Trawick are currently enjoying their offseason in New Zealand. 

But a few videos they posted going white-water rafting and bungee jumping left head coach Jack Del Rio a bit anxious. 

"Anxiety level went up a bit thinking of my BIG pro bowl LG on the rapids!!" Del Rio tweeted Monday. "Can't leave out Brynden or Taiwan either ... have fun and be safe"

Osemele has posted a handful of photos and videos from the trip, including one of a raft capsizing with the caption: "It got real out there!!! Category 4 Rapids #NewZealand." Another showed the 6-foot-5, 333-pounder doing a backflip off a bungee platform with the caption: "Just did a backflip off the highest swing in the WORLD!!!!!!! Crazy!!! #LivingLife"

Trent Richardson is reportedly in some trouble.

Richardson was arrested on Thursday night for domestic violence, according to TMZ Sports.

The former running back was taken into custody on a third degree charge, the report states, with bail being set for $1,000.

The arrest was made in Hoover, Alabama.

The Browns selected Richardson with the third overall pick in the 2012 draft.

He was traded to the Colts in 2013 and played for Indianapolis in 2014.

He signed with the Raiders in 2015 and appeared in three exhibition games, but did not make the team.

The 26-year old was cut by the Ravens last August.
