Earlier in the week we reported on Baltimore Ravens outside linebacker Courtney Upshaw blaming his weight issues on “personal issues.”
His head coach John Harbaugh, was having none of it, and called out Upshaw for his poor eating habits. and according to ESPN.com, says “he eats too much.”
“Courtney’s weight issue — which he does need some pounds — is that he doesn’t eat right,” Harbaugh told the club’s website. “Courtney eats too much and he doesn’t eat all the right foods.
“He knows that and that’s something he’s going to have to get a handle on, or he’s not going to be the best he can be. But he’s aware of it. Everybody in our building is involved with it. He’ll be in fighting shape, I promise you that.”
Upshaw is reportedly weighting 285 pounds, and Harbaugh and company are not happy about it. He skipped the teams visit to the White House, so he could continue to work.
Upshaw will be counted on to start, and must get his weight issues under control.
