David Ojabo is expected to be back by midseason says John Harbaugh. The former Michigan outside linebacker injured himself when he tore his Achilles tendon at Michigan’s Pro Day and hasn’t had any on-the-field activity in 5 months. The good news is, Ojabo seems to be making progress.

“He swears he’s gonna be back midseason at the latest,” said the Baltimore Ravens head coach on SiriusXM NFL Radio. Harbaugh continued to say the rookie sounds confident in this return and continues to work in the weight room to get his legs in football shape.

Ojabo was the second-round draft choice of the Baltimore Ravens in the 2021 NFL Draft. Before that, he was first-team All-B1G and was a second-team All-American last year too.

The Ravens’ defense has always been one of the best in the NFL, especially under Harbaugh and the addition of Ojabo is going to only make a great defense even better.

But the Ravens got hit with a rash of injuries last year that hurt the team and their run towards the playoffs. But if they can get well on defense and Ojabo does indeed return to the team as he claims, once again this defense may be tops in the NFL.
