The team announced Monday that veteran linebacker #AlbertMcClellan suffered a torn ACL in practice last week and will be out for the entire 2017 season. McClellan started in 11 of 16 games for Baltimore last season, tallying 55 tackles and one sack.
Baltimore’s ongoing battle with injuries has been intense this offseason. Former All-Pro Zach Orr retired from the NFL due to a congenital spinal condition and Dennis Pitta (hip), Kenneth Dixon(knee), Tavon Young (knee), Nico Siragusa (knee) and Crockett Gillmore (MCL) all are slated to miss the season because of their respective injuries.
In addition, quarterback Joe Flacco hasn’t taken a snap in training camp or the preseason because of a back injury. Coach John Harbaugh, however, is confident he’ll be healthy to play in the Ravens’ season opener against the Cincinnati Bengals.
