Oakland Raiders linebacker Rolando McClain returned to practice this week following a two-game suspension, but has seen his role reduced a significant amount. At Thursday's practice, McClain was thrust into the role of scout team running back.
McClain was in the locker room for the media access period after practice, but the linebacker refused to speak to reporters (via CSN Bay Area):
"I ain't got nothing to say," McClain said with a shake of his head.
"Coach covered everything you could ask me."
Raiders coach Dennis Allen has not discussed the specifics of McClain's suspension, which was handed down on Nov. 30 for "conduct detrimental to the team." The two men met on Wednesday and McClain was subsequently put back on the active 53-man roster.
It's currently unknown whether McClain will see the field when the Raiders host the Kansas City Chiefs this Sunday. Raiders defensive coordinator Jason Tarver said Thursday that McClain has looked good in practice, but there are no guarantees when it comes to playing this weekend.
Before getting suspended, McClain had notched 60 tackles on the season, which is currently still fourth on the team.
