ALAMEDA - Did Darren McFadden's turf toe spread?
After wearing a walking boot on his right foot a few weeks back, McFadden was at practice today with a walking boot on his left foot.
Since we all know he didn't pass turf toe from his right foot to the left, that means there's something else going on with McFadden that would appear to limit his chances of making an impact as a rookie.
When McFadden was limited last week in practice, he and coach Tom Cable said it was the troublesome right toe that was acting up again.
So the question becomes what's wrong with McFadden's left foot.
Defensive end Derrick Burgess is still at practice with a towel over his shoulder and no helmet. Cable said on Monday that Burgess is day-to-day.
Also not practicing is safety Gibril Wilson, who was not said to have an injury on Monday. LB Jon Alston (foot) also was not at practice.
*New fullback Jason Davis was at practice. He is wearing No. 34.
*WR Ronald Curry took a lot of practice snaps on special teams as a member of the punt coverage team.
Looks like the team is finding a way to use him since his role in the offense is almost nonexistent.
