Ravens place McClain on PUP list

The Sports NetworkAugust 27, 2013 

Baltimore Ravens linebacker Jameel McClain will start the 2013 season on the physically unable to perform list as he continues a slow recovery from a spinal cord contusion.

McClain was hurt during a Week 14 game against Washington last season and has not yet been cleared for contact. He will miss at least the first six weeks of the regular season.

The 28-year-old Syracuse product had started 45 consecutive games for the Ravens and had never missed a game after joining the team as an undrafted free agent in 2008.

McClain had 79 tackles in 13 games last season.

The Ravens also placed rookie defensive lineman Kapron Lewis-Moore on the reserve/non-football injury list to reach the NFL-mandated roster limit of 75.
