Ravens wide receiver Michael Campanaro hits injured reserve with back injury Campanaro (back) was placed on injured reserve Saturday. Campanaro's initial prognosis was that he was week to week with a herniated disc, so the Ravens either opted for surgery or wanted to conceal yet another blow to an already shallow group of receivers while they negotiated a trade for Chris Givens. With Campanaro out, Steve Smith still nursing a back injury, and first-round draft pick Breshad Perriman (knee) requiring surgery, it looks like Givens, Kamar Aiken, and Marlon Brown will receive the majority of Joe Flacco's receiver targets in the near future.
Ravens wide receiver Michael Campanaro has a herniated disc and is week-to-week, the National Football Post reports. He will not require surgery, but the injury could take up to six weeks to recover from. Campanaro was injured in Thursday's game against the Ravens after scoring a touchdown earlier in the game on an end around. He has five catches for 35 yards this season.
Ravens receiver Michael Campanaro dodged a bullet with a quad injury he sustained during practice on Wednesday. Campanaro sustained a partial quadriceps tear, coach John Harbaugh announced, but is expected to be back at some point during training camp. The injury will not require surgery. Campanaro was injury prone in college at Wake Forest and had battled through hamstring injuries a year ago in his rookie season. His role is expected to increase this year, though his health is a concern. Campanaro only had seven catches for 102 yards and a touchdown in 2014.
Ravens wide receiver Michael Campanaro sustained a quadriceps injury during Wednesday's OTA session, reports The Baltimore Sun. The severity of the injury is not known, according to sources. In 2014, Campanaro caught seven passes for 102 yards in four games.
Ravens second-year receiver Michael Campanaro caught four passes in a playoff game last season. That might not seem like much, but it has helped create optimism heading into this year. After all, he snagged just seven for 102 yards in all of 2014. Campanaro is hoping not only to land the top job as a kick returner, but also for an expanded role in the offense. "I'm extremely excited," he told the Baltimore Sun as the team prepared to begin OTAs. "Rookie years are difficult for anyone getting on a new team and figuring out the playbook and adjusting to the NFL game. Year Two, I just feel more comfortable. "We basically kept our same offense. With another year in the system after going through installs and running plays, you feel way more comfortable. It's like second nature. That should allow me to play faster because you know what you're doing."
