The Ravens released a brief statement on Monday updating the status of RB Willis McGahee, who was carted off the field during Sunday’s AFC Championship Game after taking a hard hit to the helmet (video) by Steelers safety Ryan Clark.
McGahee was released from a hospital in Pittsburgh early this morning and returned to Baltimore. He is expected to make a complete recovery from head and neck injuries.
“It was a heck of a hit, for one thing,” Baltimore coach John Harbaugh said on Sunday. “Your first thought is obviously concern for Willis. Once we got out there, and hearing the doctors talk and see him move around, you felt like it was going to be OK. Both sides obviously had concerns, but we were happy it was not immediately serious at that point.”
