Oakland Raiders running back Darren McFadden was back at practice on Monday after re-injuring his ankle in Thursday night’s loss to the Denver Broncos.

McFadden had missed four game with a high ankle sprain before returning to the Raiders lineup against Denver. McFadden carried 11 times for 52 yards and caught two passes for 12 yards in a touchdown before re-injuring his ankle late in the game.

According to Vic Tafur of the San Francisco Chronicle, McFadden was able to practice Monday.

“It made my nerves kind of jittery,” McFadden said. "(But) it was more of a scare than anything. It was cool today. … I was moving good, making all my cuts. I’m not concerned.”

The return of McFadden to practice so quickly should alleviate any concerns the Raiders had of him being unavailable against the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday.
