Brent Urban, Timmy Jernigan injured in Ravens' Wednesday practice

Urban's appears to be rather serious.

Two Ravens rookie defensive linemen have seen better days.

Fourth-round pick Brent Urban and second-rounder Timmy Jernigan both sustained injuries in Wednesday's practice. Urban had to be carted off of the field while Jernigan limped off.

While neither player was fighting for a starting spot, it would be setback for the Ravens to lose even one of these guys for a substantial amount of time. Defensive coordinator Dean Pees like to rotate his front seven quite a bit and both Urban and Jernigan were hoping to work in for some playing time.

Of the two, Jernigan has had the better training camp, which would make a long-term absence from him harder to deal with. However, as The Baltimore Sun's Aaron Wilson pointed out, Urban's injury appears to be more serious than Urban's.

John Harbaugh will likely address the two injuries — in some fashion — after practice concludes.
