Calais Campbell underwent surgery to treat his infection. The defensive end was unavailable for last week’s game against Tampa Bay after being listed with health issues on the team roster.
Speaking to ESPN, Campbell said he underwent surgery to clear an infection on October 26, but the DE refused to go further with his surgery, which he said was scary at first.
The NFL veteran said: “I had an infection that required surgery to remove it; that’s why it was kind of bad. At the time…yeah, it’s scary.” But don’t worry, any Ravens fan, DE is now fully healthy.
But the 36-year-old said he feared at the time it could take him longer to recover. But his doctors gave him the green light to participate in team activities.
The ever-reliable Calais Campbell has a fantastic record of avoiding injury. The last time he had to go under the knife was February 4, 2015, for an inguinal sports hernia.
Calais Campbell, 6-foot-8, was last involved in an Oct. 23 win over the Cleveland Browns, in which he had four tackles and a sack.
With Campbell back at full strength and assuring fans he feels no different, he will be looking to start the game against New Orleans on Monday night.
