    As preposterous as it might sound, Raiders coach Hue Jackson can’t say for sure whether running back Darren McFadden will be back before the regular season ends. Of course, Jackson is confident that McFadden will be back at some point. Problem is, more than six weeks after McFadden suffered a mid-foot sprain Oct. 23, Jackson isn’t any closer to offering forth a timetable for McFadden’s return than he was when the injury occurred. “I don’t think so,†Jackson said Monday, when asked if McFadden is out for the rest of the regular season. “I think he’ll be back, I really do. When that is, I don’t have an answer.†Jackson said he is just as antsy to get back McFadden as fans are to see McFadden play again. “There’s been urgency for weeks to get all of our players back as fast as we can,†Jackson said. “I’m not a doctor. I’m the coach. So, when they tell me I can have these guys back is when I’ll get them. Do I want him back? I wanted him four weeks ago. â€
