In what started off as arthritis then progressed to tendonitis, has now evolved to being unknown. This is the state of the status on the foot of the number eight pick in the 2010 NFL Draft, Rolando McClain. Tom Cable updated the status in his Monday press conference.
He first began feeling the pain after the Week 13 loss to the Miami Dolphins. It caused him to miss most of that week’s practices. It did not, however, keep him out of the Week 14 game against the Chargers. It was, in fact, probably McClain’s best overall game of his young career. He also played it to the end and was seemingly no worse for wear.
Then he was not able to practice the entire week leading before not being able to play in last Sunday’s 38-31 loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars. Tom Cable had this to say about his you middle linebacker,
It’s just the foot. Today his rehab stuff was really pretty good, but he still has an issue with it, and we’re going to continue to research it and figure out exactly what’s going on here.
Needless to say, McClain’s playing status is up in the air.
