Darren McFadden (ankle) was upgraded to "full" in Wednesday's practice, and is officially probable for Thursday night's game against the Broncos.
He's going to play. McFadden has been out since Week 9, but could be in for a fairly significant workload with back-up Marcel Reece batting hamstring and quad injuries. Jeremy Stewart, or perhaps Mike Goodson (ankle), could be in for 4-5 touches. It's an ideal time for DMC to return, as he'll have three extra days to heal up for Week 15. Averaging just 3.3 yards per carry before going down, McFadden shouldn't be considered more than a low-end RB2 for the first week of the fantasy playoffs, particularly against the Broncos' elite defense.
