“Mr. McClain asserts his innocence. We are confident that Mr. McClain will be cleared of all charges,” said attorney Billy C. Burney said in a statement.
It will take a while for the legal system to decide if Burney is right. It’s unclear what will happen to the meantime. The Raiders depend on McClain for a lot, and don’t have good depth behind him.
McClain has missed two games as a pro and he should miss another Sunday with an ankle injury. The Raiders gave 533 rushing yards in those two games.
