The Baltimore Ravens announced Saturday that they activated inside linebacker Jameel McClain from the physically unable to perform list.
To make room for McClain on the 53-man roster, the Ravens cut tight end Billy Bajema.
McClain is listed on the team's injury report as probable Sunday against the Pittsburgh Steelers. McClain has been out since December when he bruised his spinal cord in a game against the Washington Redskins.
Doctors told McClain at the time that the injury would end his career but he was later given a more encouraging diagnosis.
McClain returned to practice Wednesday.
He had 79 tackles in 13 games last season before the injury, and was a starter the last three years.
