One theory has come to light regarding the fall Ravens second-round pick Sergio Kindle took that fractured his skull last weekend: he has narcolepsy.
Kindle was at a friend’s house, when apparently, he took a wrong turn and fell down two flights of stairs. According to Chip Brown of Orangebloods.com , University of Texas coach Mack Brown said it could have resulted from the condition that causes extreme daytime sleepiness.
According to the Baltimore Sun , the Ravens had a report that said Kindle is on medication for narcolepsy and Attention Deficit Disorder.
Writes Jamison Hensley, “After they drafted Kindle, the Ravens were asked about the report that Kindle takes medication for narcolepsy and ADD. At that point, Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome and director of player personnel Eric DeCosta looked at each other before laughing. "If it was a concern, we probably wouldn't have picked him," DeCosta said at the time.”
The injury is expected to keep Kindle out for all of training camp.
