Middle linebacker Rolando McClain was one of four Raiders not practicing Wednesday as the they finished warmups and drills and got into the team portion of their daily session.
McClain was joined by Johnnie Lee Higgins (ankle), Nnamdi Asomugha (ankle) and Richard Seymour. Higgins was injured during the Jacksonville game, while it’s conceivable Asomugha and Seymour are simply veteran maintenance holdouts.
Quarterback Jason Campbell said during his daily media session he was told not to discuss a stinger which temporarily put him on the bench in favor of Kyle Boller. Campbell, however, had a helmet on and appeared to be practicing at least in a limited fashion.
The Raiders added David Howard, a defensive tackle out of Brown, to the practice squad. He replaces nose tackle Kellen Heard, who was signed off the Raiders’ practice squad and on to the 53-man roster of the Buffalo Bills.
More to come . . .
