OAKLAND, Calif. -- Running backs Darren McFadden and Mike Goodson are returning to the field for the Oakland Raiders after missing the previous four games with sprained right ankles.

Both McFadden and Goodson are active for Thursday night's game against Denver for the first since getting hurt Nov. 4 against Tampa Bay.

The Raiders also will dress three players who had concussions Sunday: safeties Matt Giordano and Mike Mitchell and cornerback Phillip Adams.

The Broncos will be without starting guard Chris Kuper and linebacker Wesley Woodyard because of ankle injuries.
