McClain not at practice today for ‘team-related issues’

Raiders coach Dennis Allen said at his daily news conference today that middle linebacker Rolando McClain wasn’t at practice today because of “team-related issues.”
When asked for more specifics, Allen declined.
“No more details, no more comments, just team-related issues,” Allen said.
It’s also unclear whether McClain will be back anytime soon. Allen said “I don’t know that” when asked if McClain would be back at practice Thursday.
If McClain doesn’t play Sunday against the Cleveland Browns, Omar Gaither likely would get the nod. He is a seasoned veteran that is versatile enough to play inside or outside.

    cut him

  • JONGRUDEN2013

    Snow comin down here,..hey man Im tryin to tell all you bittermans,..Alex Smith would be the perfect Raider,..I pray big dummy reggie can land him in February,…probably get him for a 3rd rounder. Palmer bout done and no way in the world they ever let Pryor be a QB,..hes released the night of the Charger loss.

  • guest123

    trade him to the Browns so McFadden can have a field day and he can fly back on the Browns charter.

    If Harbaugh couldn’t save Smith’s career. I don’t know who can.

    Reggie has released Rolando. Details will leak out real soon.

    Among the teams that tried to get Jason Babin: Browns, Chargers, Raiders and Dolphins

    ==============

    Interesting. Honestly don’t see the rationale behind that move at this point in the season. Not sure Babin is much more than a rotational guy.

  • DMAC

    I think Reggie wants to bring back Kampman from The Pack.
    lol

  • Marks hair

    Smith has played great in the wco the last couple yrs. And he takes care of the ball. For waay les$$. We need the cap room.

    He’s the perfect candidate for Cal.

    Hue may not be a winner, but most certainly wasn’t a loser.

    The difference between me and you Jackson supporters is I realize that as time went on, the team played worse and worse and worse under Jackson. And it STILL has not hit bottom. And just like Jackson, you Jackson supporters feel it was everyone’s fault BUT Jackson. It boggles the mind….

    No thinking Palmer is a decent qb and paying him 16 million dollars next year is crazy.

    F that. That could be used on other players. 16 million dollars for a qb that cant even scramble for a first down.

    ————————————–

    $3 million already went to him as a signing bonus. The Raiders cannot avoid that part of the cap hit.

    They can do something about the remaining $13 million though. Either get him to restructure, trade him or cut him. It’s too much to pay him.

    ==============

    Remember, Palmer restructured his deal in the offseason and Smith got $8 million per for 3 years with $$16.5 guaranteed. Not sure how much cheaper Alex Smith really is.

    And even then, which Alex Smith are you getting? He was in a WCO before and looked awful. Harbaugh is the only coach who got the most out of him – and even he seems to think that Alex Smith can’t quite take his team to the next level.

  • JONGRUDEN2013

    Palmer is gone,..get Alex Smith man Im telling you hes going to rock the Raiders and stick it to SF….hes already married to a Raiderette,…might as well join the family all the way. Word.

    But over his career he’s only been an adequate pass rusher under one coach – Jim Washburn. He’s a liability in all other facets of the game, and was allegedly cut for being a “me-guy”.

    Clearly the Raiders see something I don’t on this one. But I think their money would be better spent in the offseason.

    We suck anyways, so if he can be obtained at a cheaper price tag than CP3. Than so be it. We can spend some $$$ on the D.

  • BabySlash

    The diatribe claiming that supporters of TP being racist is tired and cumbersome. Give it a rest, you’re more boring than that lame, futile dude with the party boat trapped in the 80′s.

    Palmer is by far the best QB we have, but it is stupid that Pryor has not seen the field in some capacity. Why not give him some looks as wildcat or situational QB to make the defense account for him ? Why not pull some gadget plays from the backfield, line him up in the slot and fake reverses or get the ball in his hands as a second QB on the field. He’s not ready to start at QB but could get involved in some way and get some reps.

    No creativity at all !!! Predictable and ineffective offense! Maybe our red zone offense would be better ? Cam Newton has 20 running TD s the last two years. More than our entire team ! Pryor could do it too. Triple threat in the red zone !

    Yes, lmfao.
    You’re labeled as a racist.

    So you cut and paste the definition of RACE?

    Not about racism, but race?

    You’re rather clueless, in general, aren’t you?
    ============

    cross poster do you not speak english?

    Race is the root word of racist and racism

    They are inseparable mr wizard, like run and running.

    you must have been absent from school that day
    ==============================================
    Wow. You really are an idiot.
    The word race, and racism are the same?
    You get challenged on your racism, you post the definition of RACE, and then state they are one and the same?
    How can you be this stupid?

    Race: a group of persons related by common descent or heredity.

    Racism: hatred or intolerance of another race or other races.

    And to your small narrow bigoted mind the above are the same?

    And you wonder why everyone picks on you, ad nauseam?

    This would be more entertaining, if only it weren’t so easy.

  • RaidersAllday_LtsGeTit

    Raiders put in a Claim for BABIN per Vic tafar. OH WELL.. .back to the drawing board for REGGIE

    I bet he is gonna be pissed with Jax. I thought the Raiders should have put a claim for BABIN then traded him in the offseason.

    OH WELL. STill 5 weeks for him to get cut again.

    ———————————

    I think that’s his point. It’s just been a continuation of the ugliness that started midway through 2011. DA just hasn’t been able to stop it at this point, except for the penalty problem.

    I’m not saying DA will definitely be a great coach. But he has to get another season, combined with a pretty serious roster turnover, to see what he can do.

  • RaidersAllday_LtsGeTit

    SMITH is still a young Player with plenty of Knowledge. Probaly better then drafting a qb at this point.

    No Qb in this draft look like they are worth taking before the 4th round. We dont have the luxury of picks to waste one on a qb .. unless REGGIE Really likes one. Scouts have been at Collin Kleins games alot too.

  • Marks hair

    On 3rd and 10 you need a babin type rush end.. but it doesnt matter i knew we couldnt get him.

  • DMAC

    We’re sitting at 3-8. We get blown out every time we step onto the field.
    Our team doesn’t even have an identity!
    And some of you want……..

    CONTINUITY?????

    All I’m saying is if Hue got the boot after a 8-8 season, than why should we stick w/ DA????????

    But if they had him in the fold they could work out a deal for another year at least.

    The guy had 18 sacks last yr. and 12 the prior yr.

    Only 5 this yr. but that is more than ANYONE we have currently.

    Are we hoping to get a 20 sack guy, who is young..and cheap?

    Good luck w/ that.

    Team got worse under Jackson because he did 1 thing he shouldnt have done and let Breshnahan call the D.and i can guarantee that we weren’t running the man press schemes on either of those 99 yard drives either.Hue ran the O Bresh ran the D (Although I will say it was bad coaching to not to have a runningback to spell Mike Bush from time to time,even Hue didnt know all of the wonders and talents of the one we call Reece
