Ravens right guard Chris Chester may be out 2 weeks with infection
Chris Chester, the Baltimore Ravens' starting right guard, could miss the next two weeks because of cellulitis, Coach John Harbaugh said Sunday.
Cellulitis is a bacterial skin infection that can spread to deeper tissues and through the bloodstream to the lymph nodes if not treated with antibiotics. It can be deadly if untreated.
"So he's probably going to be a week or two until it can calm down," Harbaugh said. "We'll just have to see how he is."
Chester started the first nine games and was hospitalized Thursday night.
"The fever is going down," Harbaugh said. "They went back a second time and cleaned it out because his fever spiked."
