Ravens draft pick Kindle injured in fall

Baltimore Ravens top draft pick Sergio Kindle hurt his head in a

fall in Texas, a mishap that will prevent him from reporting to

camp on Monday.

The injury occurred Thursday night while Kindle was at a house

in Austin, Texas. According to the Ravens, it is believed the

linebacker fell down two flights of stairs.

He is in stable condition at University Medical Center

Brackenridge.

Kindle played football at Texas before being drafted by the

Ravens in the second round of the NFL draft.

“Members of our medical staff, including Bill Tessendorf

and Dr. Andy Tucker, have spoken with doctors in Texas. We

understand Sergio is stable at this time and that he is being

tested and observed,” Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome

told the Baltimore Sun.
