Ngata Probably Won’t Need Surgery

The Baltimore Ravens are optimistic that defensive tackle Haloti Ngata won’t need surgery on his left knee, The Baltimore Sun’s Aaron Wilson reported Monday.

Ngata missed most of the second half of Sunday’s Super Bowl XLVII victory after San Francisco 49ers guard Aaron Boone fell into the back of his leg. He has an MRI scheduled for Tuesday, but Ngata was seen walking around the team hotel in New Orleans on Monday without crutches.

The Ravens reportedly would be surprised if there was any major damage to Ngata’s knee. They’re hoping it’s simply a sprained medial collateral ligament — they’ll certainly take that over a tear.
