Friday, October 8th, 2010 at 10:54 am in Oakland Raiders.
Middle linebacker Rolando McClain was back on the field Friday after missing two days of practice because of a personal issue involving a death in the family.
As the Raiders finished warmups, drills and some special teams work, things were status quo with regard to availability to face the Chargers.
Running back Darren McFadden (hamstring), cornerback Walter McFadden, linebacker Travis Goethel (lower back) and running back Michael Bennett (hamstring) worked on a separate field with a member of the athletic training staff and are expected to be inactive Sunday.
Those who were not present and also won’t play included left guard Robert Gallery (hamstring), defensive tackle John Henderson (stress fracture), linebacker Thomas Howard (knee) and wide receiver Chaz Schilens (knee).
Starting weak side linebacker Quentin Groves (hamstring) went through some early drills at a leisurely pace then became a spectator with his helmet off.
Early indications are that new acquisition Bruce Davis will be active and utilized on special teams.
More to come . . .
