ALAMEDA, Calif. (AP) - Oakland coach Hue Jackson said he is disturbed by the allegations against the Raiders' Rolando McClain but hasn't ruled the second-year linebacker out for Sunday's game in Miami.

McClain was arrested Thursday on misdemeanor assault, firearms and other charges after police said he fired a gun during a fight in his Alabama hometown.

The eighth overall pick in the 2010 draft, McClain later posted $2,000 bail and was released.      

Before McClain was arrested, Jackson said he expected him to play against the Dolphins. Jackson backed off those comments a day later after learning more details about the incident.

McClain missed his third straight practice Friday and Jackson said the linebacker is not in Oakland. McClain had been in Alabama to attend his grandfather's funeral at the time of his arrest.
