    Each week, Raiders coach Hue Jackson speaks with running back Darren McFadden about his rehabilitation from a midfoot sprain. From there, he huddles with the team trainers assigned to get McFadden healthy. Ultimately, Jackson gazes into the eyes of the trainers as a means of getting a true sense for McFadden’s progress but when he doesn’t get the look he wants, he goes "the other way.†The latest look from the trainers told Jackson that McFadden isn’t ready to resume practicing or playing despite missing the past 66 days. “He’s not ready yet,†Jackson said Wednesday. On the bright side, Jackson said, the expression from the trainers tells him that there is hope of seeing McFadden play again this season. “That expression’s much better, but it’s just not where it needs to be,†Jackson said. “It’s not that, ‘Here we go.’ But we’re getting there, though. And he is more confident. So we’re getting closer, but we’re not there yet.â€
