ALAMEDA — Linebacker Rolando McClain remained a member of the Oakland Raiders on Thursday despite being told to stay out of practice for a second straight day and not to report to the team facility.

The former first-round pick is stuck in limbo a day after being sent out of practice by coach Dennis Allen for undisclosed reasons.

"There's going to be consequences to his actions and it's a team-related issue," Allen said. "I don't really want to get into the details of it. We asked him not to come to practice today."

Allen said he talked with McClain on Thursday and that McClain was told not to report to the team's facility as the Raiders (3-8) prepare for Sunday's home game against the Cleveland Browns.

Allen said McClain has not been suspended and remains on the 53-man roster but would not speculate on what the future held for the linebacker.
