Baltimore Ravens head coach John Harbaugh reveals that guard Kelechi Osemele is likely out for the season with a back injury.

Baltimore Ravens head coach John Harbaugh has revealed that offensive lineman Kelechi Osemele is "probably" out for the season.

The 24-year-old has been struggling with a back injury for the majority of the season and will now require surgery to amend the problem.

Harbaugh told reporters: "I think the chances of him playing the rest of this year are probably pretty slim. There's a good chance he's going to get surgery here real soon.

"I don't want to say for sure 100% because I don't know if I'm authorized to say that, but I would anticipate that right now."
