The Oakland Raiders will have all hands on deck at running back in Thanksgiving Day’s game against the Dallas Cowboys.

Darren McFadden will make his first appearance since suffering a right hamstring injury on Nov. 3 while the Raiders have been riding the hot legs of Rasad Jennings over the last three games.

“The guy that’s in there and being the most effective will be the guy that gets the opportunity,” head coach Dennis Allen said Wednesday. “But I see them both getting a chance to carry the ball. We’ll see how it goes. We’ll play (it) out as the game plays along.”

In seven games this season, McFadden has 352 rushing yards on 98 attempts this season with four rushing touchdowns. Jennings has 553 yards on 109 carries with two touchdowns while appearing in 11 games.
