The Ravens might be without Pro Bowl fullback Le'Ron McClain for a little while after he limped off the field with a left leg injury late in the second quarter of their game over the Buccaneers.
McClain was blocking on a kickoff return when his left leg got rolled up on from behind. He was down on the field for a few minutes, and had to be helped off the field by trainers.
The two-time Pro Bowler could not put any weight on the left leg as he hopped into the locker room.
McClain was the Ravens' leading rusher in 2008, gaining 902 yards and picking up 10 touchdowns, but he has been used in more of a traditional fullback role the past two seasons.
This year, he has 24 carries for 64 yards and 15 receptions for 105 yards through the air.
The Ravens don't have another fullback on their roster, but they can use rookie tight end Dennis Pitta as a lead blocker for the remainder of the game, assuming McClain cannot return.
They'll just have to hope that this injury won't keep McClain out much longer than that.
UPADTE: The Ravens are classifying McClain's injury as an ankle sprain. He has been ruled out for the rest of this game.
