OWINGS MILLS, Md. (AP) -- Ravens running back Willis McGahee returned to his Baltimore home Monday after spending the night in a Pittsburgh hospital recovering from a helmet-to-helment hit in the AFC championship game against the Steelers.
McGahee was carted from the field on a stretcher Sunday after colliding with Steelers safety Ryan Clark. The play occurred in the fourth quarter of Pittsburgh's 23-14 victory.
Although he had significant neck pain, McGahee had movement in his arms and legs after the hit. He was taken to UPMC Presbyterian Hospital in Pittsburgh and held overnight for observation. McGahee was released early Monday morning and back in Baltimore home by early afternoon.
