Rolando McClain LB DAL 18 Days

McClain was forced out of Sunday's playoff game with a head injury, ESPN's Todd Archer reports.

After having suffered a concussion last week, it seems unlikely that McClain will re-enter Sunday's game. Prior to his exit, McClain had recorded one tackle.

McClain (knee/concussion) is listed as active for Sunday's playoff game against the Packers, David Helman of reports.

Meanwhile, fellow linebackers Keith Smith and James Anderson are inactive Sunday, which Helman suggests is a sign that the Cowboys feel good about the prospects of McClain and Anthony Hitchens, who were both listed as questionable in advance of Sunday's contest.

McClain (knee/concussion) is listed as questionable for Sunday's playoff game against the Packers, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

McClain returned to practice Friday after being cleared to do so under the NFL's concussion protocol, so it looks like the middle linebacker -- who was forced out of last weekend's win over the Lions after recording five tackles -- has a solid chance to suit up for Sunday's 1:05 ET kickoff.

McClain has been cleared from his concussion, and he is participating in Friday's practice, Todd Archer of ESPN Dallas reports.

As expected, McClain is back at practice Friday, after suffering a concussion during Sunday's win over the Lions. He thus seems likely to get the start at inside linebacker in Sunday's game against the Packers, though his presence can't yet be taken as a given.

McClain (concussion) appears unlikely to return to practice until Friday, NFL Network's Desmond Purnell reports.

McClain was forced out of this past Sunday's wild card win over the Lions early in the second quarter with a concussion. More on the status of the Cowboys' starting middle linebacker as the week continues, but for the time being, his availability for this weekend's contest against the Packers is uncertain.

Despite leaving the field briefly during the first half to have his knee checked out, McClain recorded seven tackles during Thursday's loss to the Eagles.

That's 18 tackles in two games since McClain returned to action following the Cowboys' bye week. His ongoing knee issues make him a somewhat risky IDP play, however.

McClain (knee) led the Cowboys with 11 tackles in Sunday's win over the Giants.

Looks like the Cowboys' bye week provided McClain with enough rest to get him back into top form. He's a risky IDP play due to the short week, but he could have another productive game on Thursday against the Eagles.

McClain (knee) is active for Sunday's game against the Jaguars.

McClain was unable to practice all week, but he will try to play through the discomfort in his knee Sunday. How long he lasts, however, is anyone's guess. If his knee doesn't hold up, or if he needs more rest than usual, look for the Cowboys to sprinkle in some snaps for Anthony Hitchens more frequently.
