Mike Garafolo of USA Today reports that Ravens defensive tackle Haloti Ngata was spotted walking through the team hotel on Monday without crutches. Ngata said he’s “feeling better” after suffering a left knee injury in Sunday night’s Super Bowl XLVII win.
Garafolo’s USA Today colleague, Lindsay Jones, observed Ngata “literally jogging” through the hotel lobby to retrieve something from his room.
Ngata will undergo an MRI on Monday after exiting the game in the third quarter. He also spoke to reporters following the victory.
“Doctors don’t really know if any ligaments are torn or anything,” Ngata told Aaron Wilson of the Baltimore Sun. “We’ll definitely see when we get back to Baltimore.”
Ngata does have plenty of time to heal up before 2013 training camp, but a ligament tear could cost him most of the offseason. Expect more updates this week.
