SHARE Shea McClellin: last knee hurdle is ‘mental’

Bears linebacker Shea McClellin spent the week testing braces and tape on the left knee he injured Week 5 in Kansas City.

While he was ruled questionable for Monday, McClellin sounded confident in his injured knee.

“Any time you get a knee injury, I think it’s hard to feel 100 percent,” he said Saturday at Halas Hall. “I think that’s the biggest thing, just being able to trust it. Physically, once you get rehab going, everything’s good.

“The last little hurdle is mental. That’s probably the hardest part.”

McClellin, who was limited Saturday, said he had “no complications” during a week’s worth of practice.

“It felt good just to be out there with football movements,” he said. “You can’t really replicate it unless you’re out there getting reps. It felt good to finally be back.”
