ALAMEDA -- Starting middle linebacker Rolando McClain and reserve cornerbackkickoff returner Coye Francies, both of whom suffered concussions against Miami, were practicing Thursday.And while there were on the field for the non-contact practice, lending credence to the notion they might play against Pittsburgh, it does not mean they have been totally cleared to play as part of the NFL's concussion protocol.Also, there was no sign of either right tackle Khalif Barnes (groin) or cornerback Shawntae Spencer (right foot).McClain, Francies, Barnes and Spencer were the only four Raiders players to not practice on Wednesday.
