Linebacker Rolando McClain remained a member of the 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.

“This is something that we’ve got to make a decision as an organization, and we’re going to make sure that we make the right decision,” Allen said.

On Wednesday, McClain wrote on his Facebook page that he is no longer on the team, but the posts were quickly removed.

NOTE: Sunday’s game against the Cleveland Browns will not be televised locally because not enough tickets were sold. The team announced the blackout Thursday, ending a streak of 13 straight televised games.
