ALAMEDA, Calif. -- Running backs Darren McFadden and Rashad Jennings w

ALAMEDA, Calif. -- Running backs Darren McFadden and Rashad Jennings were back at practice for the Oakland Raiders on Wednesday despite being hampered by hamstring injuries. McFadden practiced for the first since getting hurt in the first half of a game against Washington on Sept. 29. Jennings was also back at practice after hurting his hamstring in the first half Sunday night against San Diego. Both players were limited, but it was a good sign that they could get back on the field so early in the week. "That was good," coach Dennis Allen said. "I thought both of them looked pretty good in practice today in the reps that they took and hopefully well be able to have both of those guys during the game." Getting the running game going this week against Kansas City (5-0) will be a priority for the Raiders (2-3). The Chiefs are 30th in the league allowing 5.3 yards per carry while ranking tops in sacks with 21. The Chiefs have the top third-down defence in the NFL, allowing just 23.5 per cent to be converted into first downs and have been particularly stingy in long yardage situations, allowing just 5 of 47 conversions on third and at least 6 yards. "Weve got to be able to stay ahead of the sticks," quarterback Terrelle Pryor said. "You start getting into third-and-long situations against these guys and its been tough sledding for a lot of teams this year, when you get in third-and-long situations. "So weve got to be able to stay on schedule offensively, stay ahead of the sticks, and when we do get to third down, weve got to be able to convert." The Raiders want to be careful with McFadden, considering he has missed 24 games in five-plus seasons with a variety of injuries. With a week off next week, Oakland could choose to rest McFadden to make sure this hamstring injury doesnt linger. McFadden had good success against the Chiefs last season, rushing for more than 100 yards in each meeting. McFadden has been inconsistent this season. More than half of his 215 yards rushing have come on four carries against lowly Jacksonville on Sept. 15. On his other 49 attempts, McFadden is averaging 2.2 yards a carry. But the Raiders still want that big-play ability on the field. "If I have the sidekick D-Mac with me well be good to go," Pryor said. "Id love to have D-Mac playing with me. That would take a lot of load off of me and the guys will be guessing." Jennings played well in McFaddens place against the Redskins, rushing for 45 yards and catching eight passes for 71 yards. He had 10 carries for 41 yards last week against the Chargers before the injury. "We really cant wait to have us two as a one-two punch, both of us going," Jennings said. "It will be fun." The Raiders have been one of the leagues top rushing teams so far this season, ranking ninth with 130.8 yards per game and fourth with 4.7 yards per carry. They are also tied for the league lead with nine runs of at least 20 yards. Much of that success has been helped by the running of quarterback Terrelle Pryor, who leads the team with 229 yards rushing and is averaging 6.2 yards per carry. Pryors proficiency running the read-option game makes it difficult for defences to key on the running back, leading to holes for big gainers. "I think having Terrelle Pryor back there helps our running game because hes a guy that teams have to account for; whether hes got the ball in his hands or not, teams have to account for him," Allen said. "So, I thought that helped our run game." NOTES: RT Tony Pashos (groin) was back at practice after missing last weeks game, while C Stefen Wisniewski (knee) remains sidelined. ...

Western was last ranked first in the country in October 2011.PHILADELPHIA - Keith Allen, a Hall of Fame executive credited with building the Philadelphia Flyers into a hockey power during the 1970s, died Tuesday. He was 90. The Saskatoon native appeared as a player in just 28 NHL games with the Detroit Red Wings from 1953-55. But it was when he traded in his skates for a suit that Allen made his mark. Allen joined the Flyers in 1966 and became the franchises first head coach during its debut season in 1967 when Philadelphia won the West Division title. He became general manager of the team in 1969 and held the job until 1983. During his tenure the Flyers won back-to-back Stanley Cups in 1973-74 and 1974-75 and reached the Stanley Cup final four times. Allens success in turning the Flyers into the "Broad Street Bullies" was built by drafting and acquiring players such as Hall of Famer Bill Barber, Rick MacLeish, Bob Kelly, Bob Clement, Bernie Parent, Barry Ashbee, Reggie Leach, Terry Crisp and Andre Dupont. "Keith was responsible for the Flyers winning the Stanley Cup," said Hall of Famer Bobby Clarke in a statement. "He was in charge of the draft, in charge of the trades, in charge of getting Bernie back — alll the things necessary for us to win the (Cup).dddddddddddd. He put the pieces in place and hired the coach. He, more than anybody was responsible for us winning the Cups." Allen was in charge when Philadelphia set a league record 35-game unbeaten streak en route to the Stanley Cup final during the 1979-80 season. Prior to his departure, he drafted players such as Brian Propp, Rick Tocchet and Ron Hextall who would lead the team to two more championship appearances in the 80s. He also gave the late Fred Shero the head coaching job with the Flyers in 1971, and hired Pat Quinn to his first NHL coaching job in 1978-79. Allen was elected to the Hockey Hall of Fame as a builder in 1992. "Keith Allen always found a way to bring exceptional talent to Broad Street and weave it into the fabric of a team that would succeed and endure at the highest level, because in Philadelphia, for his Flyers and their fans, no other level was acceptable," said commissioner Gary Bettman in a statement. "The National Hockey League sends heartfelt condolences to Keiths family, to his friends and to the Flyers organization, which has lost one of its patriarchs."
