Dallas Cowboys linebacker Rolando McClain continues to be sidelined by his knee injury, and he could begin the regular season on the physically unable to perform list, according to ESPN Dallas. McClain is suspended for the first four games for violating the league's substance-abuse policy, and putting him on the PUP list would only cost him one additional game thanks to the team's Week 6 bye. Placing him on the PUP list would allow the Cowboys to add another player to the roster, so while owner and general manager Jerry Jones suggested Saturday that McClain was on pace to be ready for Week 1, even though he is not eligible to play, roster considerations could dictate the move. McClain had 81 tackles, one sack and two interceptions in 13 games last season, his first in Dallas after he spent the first three years of his career with the Oakland Raiders.

McClain (knee) has been suspended for four games for violating the league's substance abuse policy, Mike Garofalo of Fox Sports 1 reports.
The middle linebacker seemed to get his career back on track last season with the Cowboys, but McClain will now have to sit until Week 5 before returning to the lineup. Sean Lee and Anthony Hitchens are the most likely candidates to fill in for McClain while he's out, who at least will get extra time to recover from his arthroscopic knee surgery before he does get on the field.

McClain (knee) didn't practice Tuesday, Todd Archer of ESPN.com reports.
Since undergoing arthroscopic surgery on his right knee last month, McClain's rehabilitation has taken place in Alabama, for the most part. As a result, he missed the entirety of OTAs but was able to partake in the walkthrough portion in Tuesday's drills. The Cowboys hope that McClain will be a full participant once training camp begins on July 28, as he aims to build upon an 81-tackle initial season with the Cowboys in 2014.

McClain re-signed with the Cowboys on Wednesday on a one-year, $3 million contract, Drew Davidson of the Fort Worth Star Telegram reports.
McClain was able to resurrect his career while joining the Cowboys for training camp last season, ultimately winning the starting middle linebacker job and finishing second on the team in tackles (108) over his 13 games. The Cowboys had prepared for McClain's potential departure by inking veterans Jasper Brinkley and Keith Rivers to deals, but they're slated to serve as depth in the linebacking corps with McClain being retained. McClain was limited by knee and groin injuries in addition to a concussion last season, but should be fully healthy heading into the 2015 campaign.
