You may want to sit down for this one. The news is quite shocking.

Oakland Raiders running back Darren McFadden failed to finish Thursday's loss to the Denver Broncos because of an injury. (I know, he's usually so healthy.)
McFadden returned to the lineup after missing four games with a right high-ankle sprain. He rushed for 52 yards on 11 attempts and caught a 6-yard touchdown. By the end of the game, McFadden was back with the medical staff receiving treatment on that same ankle.
Raiders coach Dennis Allen didn't have any information on the injury after the game, but Yahoo! Sports' Jason Cole reported McFadden "tweaked" the ankle and it's not as bad as before, according to a source.
The silver lining for any fantasy owners who welcomed his return -- at least McFadden scored Thursday night. That was just the third time he's found the end zone all season.
