The Dallas Cowboys had their first practice of the bye week on Wednesday, and linebacker Rolando McClain participated, this after being held out all last week with groin and knee issues.
McClain suffered a right knee injury in the loss to the Arizona Cardinals two weeks ago and has been dealing with the groin injury for most of the season. In London last week, McClain dressed out and was listed as active, but he never did play a down in the win over the Jaguars.
“Rolando is one of those guys who has been dealing with a few different things over the course of the season and has done a good job managing the week, practicing on Friday and getting himself ready to play in the game,” head coach Jason Garrett told the team’s official website.
When healthy, McClain has been one of the Cowboys’ best defenders, with 44 tackles, a sack and two interceptions on the season.
