ALAMEDA, Calif. — The Oakland Raiders held linebacker Rolando McClain out of practice because of an undisclosed team-related issue.

Coach Dennis Allen would give no more information out about why he held McClain out of practice Wednesday. Allen said he did not know if McClain would practice Thursday.

McClain was the eighth overall pick in the 2010 draft. He has struggled so far in his career and has had his playing time sharply reduced in recent weeks.
