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.
