Rolando McClain Speaks With Hue Jackson, Joins Oakland Raiders At Practice

The Oakland Raiders conducted a walkthrough practice on Saturday for Sunday's game against the Miami Dolphins and middle linebacker Rolando McClain was on hand for the walkthrough. McClain was arrested on Thursday after allegedly firing a gun on Wednesday night in an altercation with a former childhood friend in Alabama. McClain has denied the charges.

McClain was released on bail Thursday afternoon and questions immediately arose as to his status for Sunday's game against the Dolphins. Hue Jackson spoke to the media on Friday and simply said that he would need to speak with McClain in person before he could make any decision as to his status for Sunday and moving forward.

Hue Jackson told CSNCalifornia.com that he spoke with McClain but would not reveal his status for Sunday. Jackson told the media:

"We'll see," Jackson told CSNCalifornia.com at the team hotel. "I feel very comfortable that we're getting down to the issues with him. This is something he has to learn from, we all have to learn from.

"I will make the best decision for the organization and the football team."

More than likely any decision will not be known until game-day inactives are announced. If McClain is not active, his primary backup is Darryl Blackstock. While Blackstock is the backup middle linebacker, there is some talk that Aaron Curry could potentially move back inside.
