Darren McFadden returns for Raiders

Running backs Darren McFadden and Mike Goodson are returning to

the field for the Oakland Raiders after missing the previous four

games with sprained right ankles.

Both McFadden and Goodson are active for Thursday night’s game

against Denver for the first since getting hurt Nov. 4 against

Tampa Bay. The Raiders also will dress three players who had

concussions Sunday: safeties Matt Giordano and Mike Mitchell and

cornerback Phillip Adams.

The Broncos will be without starting guard Chris Kuper and

linebacker Wesley Woodyard because of ankle injuries.
