ALAMEDA, Calif. (AP) - Linebacker Rolando McClain is not practicing again for the Oakland Raiders a day after being held out for an undisclosed team-related issue.

The Raiders say McClain is still on the team's roster Thursday despite being held out of practice for two days. Coach Dennis Allen is scheduled to address the media later in the day.

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.

In 41 career games with Oakland, McClain has 6 1/2 sacks, one interception, one forced fumble, no fumble recoveries and has done little to help improve Oakland's struggling run defense.
