Ravens LB Jameel McClain Not Expected To Require Surgery For Spinal Injury
Doctors told Jameel McClain, the inside linebacker expected to take the place of retired Ray Lewis, that the spinal cord contusion that ended his 2012 season is "resolving itself," he says, and is unlikely to require surgery. He expects to be ready to play Week 1.
McClain's recovery has been lost in the headlines of recent Ravens departures, including veteran wide receiver Anquan Boldin, who was traded, and free agent linebackers Paul Kruger and Dannell Ellerbe and safety Ed Reed.
McClain said he remembers everything about Dec.9, the day his season ended in Washington. He was about to tackle Redskins running back Alfred Morris "and I guess I just had my head in a wrong position and then, boom! My body went numb for a little bit. I could feel my hands. I could feel my legs. And then the sensation went away," he said.
"I was, like, 'I want to go back out there. Let's go. We need this game.' And it just didn't happen."
