Ravens have 'fingers crossed' for Michael Campanaro's return after the bye

Campanaro pulled his hamstring against the Bengals three weeks ago.

Ravens rookie receiver Michael Campanaro was just starting to show why the organization traded back into the 2014 draft to take him when he pulled his hamstring.

He was having a solid first half against the Cincinnati Bengals, catching three passes for 40 yards. Near the end of the half, however, Campanaro pulled his hamstring and has been out since. With the Ravens on their bye week, the team is hopeful that he'll be able to return the following week for the New Orleans game.

"[We] have our fingers crossed. I talked to Michael [Campanaro] today, and he has his fingers crossed," coach John Harbaugh told reporters. "He'll be in here every day. All the injured guys will be in here every day [during the bye week]. It kind of goes to the question earlier, but they'll all be in here working hard to get healthy."

Campanaro offers a unique skill set to this roster, as someone that can work the middle of the field and exploit zone coverages underneath. Injuries are a concern as he dealt with those in college at Wake Forest. But when he's healthy, he certainly has the potential to be a weapon offensively.

In addition, the Ravens are still deciding what they should do with offensive lineman Jah Reid, who has a broken hand. He could be a candidate for the season-ending injured reserve list it looks like.
