Sergio Kindle to Miss All of Training Camp With Fractured Skull

Bad news to report; Sergio Kindle's "Head-Injury" turns out to be a fractured skull. He is going to miss all of training camp. Kindle, yet to have signed his contract, will be lucky if he can even play in the pre-season.


Sergio Kindle, the Baltimore Ravens' first pick in the 2010 draft, will miss all of training camp, coach John Harbaugh said Monday, after fracturing his skull in an accident at a house he was visiting in Austin, Texas.

It's believed that Kindle, a 23-year-old defensive end/linebacker, fell down two flights of stairs Thursday night, according to the team's official Web site. Kindle is listed in stable condition at University Medical Center Brackenridge.

The Carroll County Times reported that Kindle was admitted to the hospital with swelling inside his skull, but his condition has "gotten much better" over the last few days and he is expected to make a full recovery.

"Members of our medical staff, including Bill Tessendorf and Dr. Andy Tucker, have spoken with doctors in Texas," Ravens general manager and executive vice president Ozzie Newsome said in a statement released by the team on Sunday. "We understand Sergio is stable at this time and that he is being tested and observed."

This is going to greatly affect his impact this year, for he won't be able to learn the playbook until pre-season. In any case, let's all hope he can make a speedy recovery, and come back to Baltimore healthy.
