Baltimore Ravens Inside Slant 2008-09-23
Ravens strong safety Dawan Landry is expected to return this season after sustaining a spinal cord concussion in Sunday's 28-10 victory over the Cleveland Browns.


Landry was released from the hospital Monday and will wear a cervical collar for at least a week. His stability tests are "normal," coach John Harbaugh said.

"He'll be playing in some number of weeks," Harbaugh said. "It won't be too many weeks."

Landry took a left knee from Browns running back Jamal Lewis to the crown of his helmet and needed to be carted off the field in the final minute of the first half.

The Ravens announced Sunday night that Landry had "neurologically recovered" and remained at Maryland Shock Trauma overnight.

Landry will be replaced in the starting lineup by Jim Leonhard, who had a sack, a tackle for a loss and a pass defensed.

At 5-feet-8 and 186 pounds, Leonhard is not as imposing as Landry but he is experienced.

He signed with the Ravens in late April after spending three years with the Buffalo Bills. He accepted the Ravens' offer over a similar one from the Atlanta Falcons because he liked Rex Ryan's defense and he could tell this was a special group of players.

"It's fun playing this defense," Leonhard said. "These guys really love to play and get after people. Anytime you've got the talented guys we have with that work ethic and the passion to play, it's a scary thing."

In the third quarter, he got free on a double safety blitz to drop quarterback Derek Anderson for a 7-yard loss. On the next play, he returned a punt 22 yards to set up the Ravens' third touchdown of the period.

"When we first got him, we knew he was a good football player," Ryan said. "I remember the kid when he was at Wisconsin. He did these exact things. It doesn't matter what he looks like. ... He can jump over your head. He's got phenomenal athletic abilities."

Also, Ravens running back Willis McGahee is still feeling the effects of an eye injury that he sustained Sunday.

"His eye has really swollen up badly," Harbaugh said. "He's got work to do to get that down."

The Ravens' tag-team running attack of McGahee and Le'Ron McClain combined for 130 yards and three touchdowns. Playing his first game since Dec. 23, 2007, McGahee made the start and finished with 64 yards and one touchdown on 15 carries.

"It was good to have him back out there, just him doing his thing and me blocking," McClain said. "When he was going down, I felt bad for him. But we just stepped up and the offensive line took over."
