Oakland Raiders linebacker Rolando McClain still has some explaining to do after his arrest in Alabama earlier in the week.

McClain, who smiled as officers arrested him on Thursday, is in Miami and he's expecting to play tomorrow against the Miami Dolphins.

The Raiders have him listed as "questionable."

McClain is being charged with four misdemeanors after allegedly assaulting an individual by holding a gun next to his head, then firing a shot next to his ear on Wednesday in his home town of Decatur.

His attorney denies the linebacker was even involved in a fight. Either way, Raiders head coach Hue Jackson isn't happy.

"I'm disturbed by everything," Jackson said. "Everything that hurts this organization and thsi football team and what we're trying to talk about and become. I'm very disturbed by it."

Whether McClain will start will be a game-day decision.
