John Harbaugh: Courtney Upshaw “eats too much”

Ravens head coach John Harbaugh says that second-year linebacker Courtney Upshaw needs to eat less and consume foods that are better for him so he can lose weight.

“My first thought is that he is playing pretty well,” Harbaugh said, per the Carroll County Times. “That’s my first thought. He understands the defense exceptionally well. He’s working really hard, [but] Courtney’s weight issue – which he does need to lose some pounds – is that he doesn’t eat right.

“Courtney eats too much, and he doesn’t eat all the right foods. He knows that’s something that he’s going to have to get a handle on or he’s not going to be the best he can be. He’s aware of it. We have everybody in our building involved in it. He’ll be in fighting shape. I promise you that.”

You have to appreciate Harbaugh’s honesty.  Hopefully Upshaw will work on shedding a few pounds.
