This is starting to sound a little too familiar. Baltimore Ravens outside linebacker, Michael McAdoo, tore his Achilles tendon on Thursday during an organized team activity.
Unfortunately he is the second Ravens LB to tear his Achilles tendon this off season. LB Terrell Suggs tore his in early May and will miss the first half of the season, no time table has been set for his return.
McAdoo had surgery Friday and will miss the entire season. He was attempting to fill in for Suggs. Ironically, Ravens writer, Ryan Mink wrote an article on McAdoo before the injury occurred. He felt he was further ahead than he thought, apparently a bit too far ahead…
At 21 years old, McAdoo was the youngest player on the Ravens’ roster. He was signed as an undrafted free agent in 2011, but did not play all season because of a knee injury.
The competition will continue for the rest of linebackers vying for a roster spot including Paul Kruger, Sergio Kindle, Albert McClellan and newly drafted Courtney Upshaw.
