Post Monday press conference

November 03, 2008 |

– Here is your daily Chris McAlister update : Chris has gone to get a third opinion on his knee and will be out for the game on Sunday. There is debate whether he went to Miami or to California for this. I still think we will be hearing that McAlister is done for the year.

– Injury wise from yesterday, Frank Walker and Fabian Washington made it out of the game yesterday  ok after having  a hamstring issue(Walker) and shoulder issue (Washington). Coach Harbaugh believes that they will both be ready to play on Sunday. Samari Rolle could make it back on Sunday depending on how he makes it through this week of practice.

– To make up for the bye week the Ravens lost, the players had off today and will not come back till Wednesday when the schedule will change a little bit. Coach Harbaugh pointed out that they will scale back the practices from a physical standpoint a  little bit and do more mental work.

-Talking big picture with the season so far is not something Coach Harbaugh is interested in at this time. He was quick to point out that all he will guarantee at this point is that they will be no worse than 5-11. He is all about being focused on the Houston Texans and said they have put themselves in the hunt to have a shot at the playoffs, but that is all.

-Ray Rice had a nice game on Sunday, but that does not mean he will be the feature back for the Ravens for the rest of the season. All it means is that Ray has increased his chances of getting more carries throughout the season. The Ravens feel that the extra day of rest for McGahee that he got on Sunday will benefit him moving forward.
