ALAMEDA - There really wasn't much to watch when Darren McFadden was on the field this morning.
He was just walking before the media headed to the locker room for interviews. If McFadden did more, he waited until the media could not see him.
But McFadden being on the field for even a light workout is a positive considering he hasn't practiced since spraining his foot Oct. 23.
"I think that was huge," said Raiders coach Hue Jackson. "I think that's a step in the right direction."
The chances McFadden plays this weekend at Miami don't appear good. Jackson said McFadden would need to get his conditioning back and that he doesn't want to play McFadden until he is 100 percent.
Wide receiver Jacoby Ford said his foot injury isn't as severe as McFadden's. Ford has missed the last two games. It doesn't sound as if Ford will be available this Sunday at Miami.
"It's kind of week-by-week, day-by-day," Ford said. "That's just kind of how we're taking it. Slow process but it's getting there. It's definitely getting better."
Jackson also said quarterback Jason Campbell (broken collarbone) had begun to toss a football but not very far yet.
The Raiders game at Green Bay on Dec. 11 has been "flexed" and will air at 1:15 p.m. PST, making it a game many around the country will see.
If the Packers beat the New York Giants this Sunday, they would be 12-0 when hosting the Raiders.
