The Baltimore Ravens expect outside linebacker Pernell McPhee to miss the rest of the season after he likely suffered a torn triceps Sunday in a 30-16 victory over the Seattle Seahawks.

“If he has a torn triceps, which I believe he does, that would preclude the rest of his season,” coach John Harbaugh said Monday.

McPhee has 19 tackles this season, including three sacks, while starting all seven games.

McPhee signed a one-year deal in May to come back to Baltimore, where he spent the first four seasons of his career (2011-2014).

“He wanted to prove himself. He wanted to get back on track and demonstrate that he still could play,” Harbaugh said.

“To do it here, to be the leader that he was … he’s been instrumental. He’s been instrumental with the young guys, been a very good player for us. I see no reason why he can’t recover from the triceps injury and be back next year stronger than ever.”

McPhee spent three seasons with the Chicago Bears (2015-17) and one with the Washington Redskins, where he failed to register a sack in 13 games last season.

McPhee, 30, has 34 career sacks, 100 quarterback hits, 216 tackles and six forced fumbles in 116 games (30 starts).

The Ravens’ 2011 fifth-round pick posted a career-high 7.5 sacks with Baltimore in 2014.
