ALAMEDA — Running backs Darren McFadden and Rashad Jennings were back at practice for the Oakland Raiders on Wednesday despite being hampered by hamstring injuries.

McFadden practiced for the first since getting hurt in the first half of a game against Washington on Sept. 29. Jennings was also back at practice after hurting his hamstring in the first half Sunday night against San Diego.

Both players were limited, but it was a good sign that they could get back on the field so early in the week.

"That was good," coach Dennis Allen said. "I thought both of them looked pretty good in practice today in the reps that they took and hopefully we'll be able to have both of those guys during the game."

Getting the running game going this week against Kansas City (5-0) will be a priority for the Raiders (2-3). The Chiefs are 30th in the league allowing 5.3 yards per carry while ranking tops in sacks with 21.
