OWINGS MILLS, Md. -- Baltimore Ravens linebacker Jameel McClain will miss at least the first six weeks of the regular season as he recovers from a bruised spinal cord.
Baltimore placed the inside linebacker on the physically unable to perform list because he still is working his way back from the December injury.
McClain has been a starter for the Ravens each of the last three years. He had 79 tackles in 13 games last season prior to his injury.
NOTE: Olympic champion Michael Phelps was a guest at Baltimore's practice Tuesday. The Baltimore native and avid Ravens fan has been a guest at practice in the past and frequently attends games.
