NFL.com news: Ravens rookie Kindle suffers fractured skull, will miss camp

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.

According to Harbaugh, Kindle was at a "function" with some friends.

"He stayed overnight, got up in the middle of the night and took a wrong turn," said Harbaugh, who spoke with Kindle's father but hasn't been able to reach the rookie, according to the team's official Web site. "It was pitch black where he was at -- he couldn't see where he was going - and he fell down two flights of steps, so that's what we know."

Ravens, Cody strike deal
Terrence Cody, the rookie defensive tackle nicknamed "Mount Cody," agreed to a four-year contract with the Ravens, a league source told NFL Network insider Jason La Canfora. More ...
According to NFL Network insider Jason La Canfora, the Ravens still intend to sign Kindle, who can't travel to Baltimore for at least three weeks.

"I know one thing, we're going to be very careful with that. You're talking about a head injury and playing football," Harbaugh said. "That's not something we want to mess with. From a football standpoint, we'll move on with the guys we've got."

Ravens rookies reported to training camp Monday at McDaniel College in Westminster, Md. Veterans are scheduled to report Wednesday.

Kindle, who's 6-foot-3 and 250 pounds, played outside linebacker and defensive end at Texas and was named a first-team All-America by The Sporting News in 2009. The Ravens took Kindle in the second round (43rd overall) of April's draft despite concerns over a right knee injury.

The team will have to take a wait-and-see approach with Kindle's recovery.

"It's like any injury. If a guy gets hurt, you move on to the next guy, so we'll be preparing without Sergio," Harbaugh said. "You're putting your team together as if he's not out there, and that's the same as with any injured player. Then if at some point in time, if he can come back and play, that will be a great bonus for us. He'll have a lot of catching up to do at that point."

Looks like he was an injury waiting to happen ... and it happened AGAIN.

I am so glad we passed on him.

This just in...Baltimore's 2nd round pick, Terrance Cody, accidentally locked himself in his closet and couldn't get out. He had his cell phone handy and called pop-a-lock instead of 9-1-1. Due to the delayed response time of pop-a-lock, they were not able to reach Cody in time, and he had eaten himself to death.
