Baltimore Ravens' Jameel McClain Talks Concussions
Baltimore Ravens linebacker Jameel McClain talks about concussions in the NFL and precautions young athletes should take.
The organizations co-branded Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) fact sheets for coaches, parents and athletes that have been distributed to more than 150 youth and high school football coaches and athletics directors in the Baltimore area. The Ravens also committed a $25,000 per year grant for the next five years to MedStar, which will help fund outreach programs, baseline testing and subsidize testing for Baltimore-area student-athletes.
After the announcement, Patch caught up with McClain, who had to sit part of a game out during his rookie year after he suffered a concussion.
