Baltimore Ravens linebacker Albert McClellan was given the chance to play in the NFL by the Baltimore Ravens, who signed him as an undrafted free agent out of Marshall University in 2010. He played all 16 games last year and even started in place of an injured Ray Lewis on national TV when the Ravens hosted and defeated the San Francisco 49ers on Thanksgiving night.

Now, that opportunity may be in jeopardy as McClellan is facing a day in court after being charged with misdemeanor assault and battery charges. According to a story on CBSSports.com, the charges stem from a domestic incident in June of this year. McClellan's victim was his girlfriend and although she has declined to press charges, he still has a trial date in late September.

The good news is that his legal representative believes he will not be found guilty and the outcome will be in his favor. If the charges are dropped, McClellan most likely will not face any discipline from the NFL based on its code of conduct policy, as noted in the story. Hopefully, this will not affect his status with the team as he is being counted on to be an integral part of the linebacker rotation during the absence of Terrell Suggs.
