ALAMEDA, CALIF. (AP) - Oakland Raiders running back Darren McFadden will sit out Thursday night’s game in San Diego because of a lingering ankle sprain.

McFadden was not at Wednesday’s walkthrough and has not practiced at all since injuring his right foot in the first quarter of the Raiders’ 28-0 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs on Oct. 23.

Michael Bush, who rushed for 96 yards in the loss to Denver this past Sunday, will start in place of McFadden.

Additionally, veteran cornerback Lito Sheppard will start in place of rookie DeMarcus Van Dyke, who is out with a hamstring injury.

Several other players, including kicker Sebastian Janikowski (hamstring), defensive tackle Richard Seymour (ankle) and safety Michael Huff (foot) are questionable.
