Michael Bush, fresh off a very solid performance against the San Diego Chargers on Sunday, will remain the starter against the San Francisco 49ers in Week 6, according to coach Tom Cable.
Via our Oakland Rapid Reporter Eric Gilmore, Darren McFadden says he is "50-50" to play Sunday.
"I'm still feeling it right now," McFadden said of the hamstring injury. "I haven't gone out there and tried to go 100 percent."
As we wrote yesterday, it makes a lot of sense for the Raiders to take their time with McFadden -- Bush is a completely capable back and more physical than McFadden. Additionally, hamstring injuries have a way of not healing through additional wear and tear.
As for the quarterback situation, it looks like Jason Campbell will get the nod in place of the injured Bruce Gradkowski.
"That’s yet to be totally determined, but it looks that way right now until we know exactly what’s happening with Bruce," said OC Hue Jackson.
Campbell struggled early during the season but looked like the quarterback the Raiders hoped he would be while leading the team to a win against the Chargers Sunday.
And in good news, if/when he starts hearing the old boo birds chirping on Sunday, he can probably just assume it's for Alex Smith.
