Spinal cord injuries require more caution than most other injuries.  In Jameel McClain's case, the signs are all positive.  Right now, though, the Baltimore Ravens' linebacker has still not been cleared medically.   According to Aaron Wilson of the Baltimore Sun, McClain continues to undergo tests surrounding a spinal cord contusion he suffered last season.  McClain spent the latter part of the season on the injured reserve list, but the team is optimistic that he will be able to return next year. McClain just wrapped up his fourth season in the NFL.  The 27-year old was drafted out of Syracuse in 2008.  He has earned the starting inside linebacker job for the Ravens, but the injury has put his status in jeopardy going forward.  If he can be cleared medically and show he's his old self during training camp, McClain will surely retain his job.  Last year, McClain had 79 combined tackles and one fumble recovery.  In his career, he has four and a half sacks, 280 combined tackles, and four fumble recoveries.   Follow @TheNFLInjuryRpt !function(d,s,id){var js,fjs=d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0];if(!d.getElementById(id)){js=d.createElement(s);js.id=id;js.src="http://www.thenflinjuryreport.com//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js";fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js,fjs);}}(document,"script","twitter-wjs"); var _gaq = _gaq || []; _gaq.push(['_setAccount', 'UA-34100676-1']); _gaq.push(['_trackPageview']); (function() { var ga = document.createElement('script'); ga.type = 'text/javascript'; ga.async = true; ga.src = ('https:' == document.location.protocol ?

Sorting out the LB position for the Ravens...

As the scouting combine approaches, the Ravens face their biggest "makeover" challenge at both inside and outside linebacker.
