Oakland running back Darren McFadden remains questionable with hamstring injury

Running back Darren McFadden inched closer to returning to the Oakland Raiders lineup, though he hasn't been fully cleared yet.

McFadden practiced for a third straight day and continues to make progress from the hamstring injury he suffered in late September. Raiders coach Dennis Allen sounded optimistic about the former first-round pick's chances of playing this week against Kansas City.

Still, his status probably won't be known for certain until Sunday. McFadden is listed as questionable on the team's injury report.

Backup running back Rashad Jennings is also questionable with a sore hamstring.

Center Stefen Wisniewski, who missed last week's win over San Diego with a right calf strain, did not practice and will be held out against the Chiefs.
