ALAMEDA -- Running back Darren McFadden was on the field for the Raiders Wednesday, working with the first team during an early walk-through and then going through drills with his position group.

McFadden, who missed a 27-17 win over the San Diego Chargers with a hamstring strain, was not at practice all last week.

His availability would be at least a mild surprise, given his history of injury combined with the fact that the Raiders have a bye after facing the Kansas City Chiefs Sunday at Arrowhead Stadium, giving him McFadden extra time to recover.

McFadden had 114 and 110 yards in wins Kansas City last season, although this Chiefs team is 5-0 and playing much better defense.

Joining McFadden at practice was running back Rashad Jennings, who left the Chargers game after 10 rushes and 41 yards with a hamstring strain, and right tackle Tony Pashos, who was inactive against San Diego with a groin strain.

Among those not practicing for the Raiders was center Stefen Wisniewski (knee), with Andre Gurode working again at center, and tackle Stacy McGee (shoulder).

McGee, who had been getting playing time at defensive tackle with Christo Bilukidi along with starters Pat Sims and Vaughn Walker, was inactive against San Diego. The Raiders added a defensive tackle to the roster in Daniel Muir, who has played for the Jets, Colts and Packers.

Muir was signed as an undrafted free agent out of Kent State in 2007 when Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie was on the personnel staff there.

  • Free safety Charles Woodson was named the AFC Defensive Player of the Week after scoring the 13th touchdown of his career -- tying Rod Woodson and Darren Sharper for the NFL record for defensive touchdowns. Woodson also had his 56th career interceptions.

  • Muir was not one of 13 players the Raiders had in camp Tuesday for tryouts -- quarterbacks David Carr, Trent Edwards and Pat White, running backs Montario Hardesty, Keiland Williams and Jonathan Grimes, wide receivers Ramses Barden and LaQuan Williams, tight end Evan Moore and defensive backs Marcus Burley, Myron Lewis and Markelle Martin.

  • Tackle Jack Cornell, who was signed to the active roster Friday, played on special teams against San Diego and then was waived Monday, has returned to the practice squad after clearing waivers.
