Baltimore Ravens linebacker Jameel McClain is no stranger to adversity.  McClain suffered a spinal injury after making a tackle in the Ravens-Redskins matchup in December 2012.  Told by doctors that he wouldn't play again, McClain proved them wrong and came back in a big way for Baltimore this season, playing in 10 games and notching 52 combined tackles and a forced fumble.

As a result, McClain was honored with The Ed Block Courage Award, selected by his teammates to receive the distinction.  He spoke with CSNBaltimore about what it meant to him.
