Dennis Allen says team has only asked Rolando McClain not to attend practice

Ezra Shaw

Oakland Raiders head coach Dennis Allen says that linebacker Rolando McClain has not been suspended, but has been asked not to return to practice.

Things have gone south for the Oakland Raiders in a hurry, and the imbroglio seems to have reached the locker room with the status of current Raiders linebacker Rolando McClain. McClain has been rumored to be in danger of being cut, and head coach Dennis Allen has refused to comment on the situation. Paul Gutierrez of CSN Bay Area files this report.

The reports of a falling out between McClain and Allen began on Wednesday, with a heated conversation ending with Allen taking McClain out of practice. McClain then went on Facebook and proclaimed that he was on the verge of being cut, and made several remarks that seemed to infer that McClain's time with Oakland was done.

Allen refuses to comment on the situation, what McClain's actions were that caused him to get the boot. McClain has not been officially suspended, but the Raiders have asked the linebacker not to practice with the team at this time.
