The team announced Monday that veteran linebacker Albert McClellan 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.
Here's another injury we're monitoring on Monday:
- The New York Giants saw the return of one of their star wide receivers on Monday. Brandon Marshall returned to practice after sitting out last week's preseason game with a shoulder injury. However, Odell Beckham Jr., still dealing with ankle sprain, did not practice. Giants coach Ben McAdoo told reporters Beckham is continuing to receive treatment and is making progress.
- New York Jets defensive end Leonard Williams was wearing what appeared to be a cast on his left wrist, NFL Network's Kimberly Jones reported. QuarterbackBryce Petty had an elastic brace on his left knee, Jones added.
- Oakland Raiders rookie cornerback Gareon Conley remains on the physically unable to perform list, but a source informed of the situation told NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport the team expects him to play Week 1. They also expect him to practice soon.
- As anticipated, Atlanta Falcons running back Devonta Freeman (concussion) returned to practice, the team announced.
