McFadden active for Thanksgiving tilt

Arlington, TX (SportsNetwork.com) - Oakland Raiders running back Darren McFadden will play in Thursday's Thanksgiving Day matchup against the Dallas Cowboys after missing the team's last three games with a hamstring injury.

McFadden, who is expected to share time with Rashad Jennings in the backfield, had been listed as questionable on the Raiders' final injury report. The oft- injured back has rushed for 352 yards and four touchdowns on 98 carries over seven outings this season.

Tight end Mychal Rivera (concussion), cornerback Mike Jenkins (concussion) and linebacker Sio Moore (shoulder) are also active for Oakland after being termed questionable coming in.

The Raiders had already ruled out wide receiver Denarius Moore (shoulder), linebacker Kevin Burnett (quadriceps), safety Tyvon Branch (ankle) and defensive end Jason Hunter (foot) for the game.
