Ravens LB Jameel McClain's Outlook Is 'Positive' After Suffering Spinal Injury
Ravens starting inside linebacker Jameel McClain is still consulting with doctors after ending the season on injured reserve with a spinal cord contusion.
The outlook for McClain to resume playing football remains "positive," according to a league source with knowledge of the situation.
During a season-ending news conference, Ravens coach John Harbaugh expressed hope that McClain will return, saying, "We're very optimistic about that."
McClain recently indicated that doctors are taking a cautious approach with him and that he'll undergo another magnetic resonance imaging exam.
McClain remains optimistic that he'll eventually be cleared medically to play football again, adding that he's no longer feeling any pain in his back and neck since getting hurt Dec. 9 in an overtime loss to the Washington Redskins.
"Absolutely, that's the goal," McClain said during the Super Bowl in New Orleans. "It's a process. We're going to take another MRI. What we're focusing on is rest. Right now, we're just taking it slow and resting. The doctors talk about what they talk about, but the goal is to be playing next year."
