Raiders inactives: McClain sits, McFadden good to go

OAKLAND -- Not surprisingly, middle linebacker Rolando McClain is among the seven inactive Raiders players for their home finale, against Kansas City.

McClain, who was suspended two games for "conduct detrimental" to the team, returned to the Raiders on Wednesday and practiced throughout the week. His being inactive, though, makes you wonder if he will ever dress for a game again. Because while McClain purportedly put on Facebook two weeks ago that he was done with the Raiders, general manager Reggie McKenzie has said that he, and not McClain, will make that decision.

Also, defensive tackle Richard Seymour, who suffered a setback to his strained hamstring on Thursday, is inactive after being listed as questionable on Friday.

The rest of the Raiders' inactives, then: defensive end Jack Crawford, running back Jeremy Stewart, receiver Derek Hagan, right tackle Willie Smith and offensive lineman Lucas Nix.

It all means strong safety Tyvon Branch, who did not practice until Friday with a tweaked ankle, and running back Darren McFadden, who re-aggravated his high ankle sprain on Dec. 6, are ready to play.

The Chiefs' inactives: quarterback Ricky Stanzi, receiver Steve Breaston, safety Abram Elam, running back Cyrus Gray, running back Nate Eachus and guard Russ Hochstein.
