After missing the previous two weeks of practice, Oakland Raiders linebacker Rolando McClain returned to the practice field on Friday, reports Steve Corkran of the Contra Costa Times. McClain had been dealing with an ankle injury since the middle of October, but he was able to play against the Cleveland Browns and the Kansas City Chiefs before hitting the team's bye last week.
McClain plays in the middle of Kamerion Wimbley and Aaron Curry, who was acquired before the NFL trade deadline. However, it remains to be seen if McClain will actually play on Sunday. Darryl Blackstock is his likely replacement in the middle should the ankle injury prevent him from playing.
In three career games against the Broncos, McClain has five tackles and one-half of a sack.
