Ravens First Draft Pick Kindle Stable After Suffering Head Injury

Sergio Kindle is in stable condition after injuring his head only days before the team’s rookies are scheduled to report to training camp, the latest off-field incident for the Ravens’ first pick in the 2010 draft.

Kindle, 23, suffered the injury in a house he was visiting Thursday night in Austin, Texas, where it is believed he fell down two flights of stairs.

The former University of Texas linebacker has improved the past couple of days and should make a full recovery, according to a league source.

A second-round pick by the Ravens, Kindle will not report to McDaniel College with other rookies Monday when the team’s training camp starts. He is expected to be signed sometime this week, according to a league source.

Not sure what to say about the situation since there aren’t many details as to how he fell down two flights of stairs. There is speculation that he may not have been sober at the time. It’s only speculation but Kindle does have a history of drunken escapades.

In 2007, he was arrested driving while intoxicated while two years later he ran into the side of a building. An event that he explained happened due to texting while driving.

Here’s hoping that he recovers fully but that healso signs this week. I’d love to be able to focus on football for a change.
