An Alabama television station is reporting Oakland Raiders’ middle linebacker Rolando McClain was at the scene, in Decatur, Ala., of a fight Wednesday night in which gunfire was involved. It is not known if McClain was involved in the incident.
McClain was out of practice Wednesday with an ankle injury. He reportedly was not at practice in Oakland on Thursday, either. The team is aware of the incident. It is not known if McClain was cleared to leave the team Wednesday. Usually, injured players go through rehabilitation at the team facility.
Police in McClain’s hometown of Decatur said they responded to a call at 10:20 p.m. Wednesday.
When officers arrived, they reportedly found one person who had been injured in a physical altercation. The incident is currently under investigation, and McClain reportedly has not been arrested or charged in the disturbance. Earlier this year, in Decatur, shots were reportedly fired at McClain’s vehicle in a separate incident, according to the news report.
McClain, the No. 8 overall pick of the 2010 draft, has 57 tackles in 10 starts this season. He had six tackles in the Raiders’ win over the Bears on Sunday. There is no word on his availability for Sunday’s game at Miami.
