Kindle Not Ruled Out for Season

Rookie linebacker Sergio Kindle is “ahead of schedule” and hasn’t been ruled out for the season, according to the team.

Kindle, the team’s top draft pick in the 2010 draft, is scheduled to meet with neurologists in Baltimore at the end of next week. He fractured his skull in late July when he fell down two flights of stairs.

Because he is unsigned, Kindle can’t meet with team officials or come to Ravens headquarters. The Ravens are likely awaiting a prognosis on Kindle before they restart contract negotiations.

Kindle will start the season on the physically-unable-to-perform list, which means he will miss at least the first six weeks of the season. “We’ll just evaluate it from there and see where we’re at,” Harbaugh said.

Asked if Kindle has been ruled out for the season, Harbaugh simply said, “No.”

It will be interesting to see what the prognosis will be for the young linebacker and of course how it will affect his status with the team. Of course we should all have more answers by the end of the week but I was one of those who wondered early on if Kindle would ever suit up in a Baltimore uniform.

At this point I just hope that he’s healthy and that there are no long term health concerns for Kindle. Football is secondary for him at this point.
