Oh, so this is what happens when a lockout ruins all of your offseason workout plans and you have to start compressing an entire pre-2011 schedule into late July and early August. You get hurt and you get cramps, and you can certainly expect to hear more about this.

According to the Baltimore Sun, 11 Ravens players suffered minor injuries at practice today during the first day of training camp.

At least seven players went down with cramps, including rookie WR Torrey Smith, while OT Eric Vanden Heuval and LB Jason Phillips had to be carted off the field.

Meanwhile, LB Terrell Suggs, who wore a wrap around his right hamstring, did not practice. Neither did S Ed Reed, who is dealing with a family situation and could report to camp by Saturday.

So yeah, not a great start to the actual NFL season for the Ravens.

Nearly a dozen Ravens felled by minor injuries

Wow, you Ravens and Stelers fans really hate each other.
I think the hate generally travels in a Northwestly direction from Baltimore, mostly fueled by frustration. The Ravens have a good organization that has been modeled after Pittsburgh's. Ozzie Newsome is a successful GM who stays out of limelight. The team has been successful under different head coaches. The owner knows how to spend his money and support his management team. Most Steeler fans do hate playing the Ravens, but this is because the games are very competetive and hard hitting. Win or lose, you have to worry about how banged up your team comes out of the game.

I was reading that the NFL was going to give Columbus,Ohio a pro team but didn't because they thought that Cleveland would want one also.

The Ravens are being done in by the injury bug.
The Bengals have lost every one of their decent players since last season.
The Steelers locker room is completely fractured because of lunatics (Harrison), dangerous alcoholics (Hines Ward), sexual predators (Roethlisberger) and my personal favorite, terrorist sympathizers (Mendenhall).

Looks like the Browns dynasty will be starting this season.

It appears that the Ravens have been campong on the couch eating bob-bons rather than conditioning.

Wow, you Ravens and Stelers fans really hate each other. Your worse than us Packer vs Vikings fans. Seriously though, cramps should not be considered "injuries". Media calls them that so they can "shock" you with the "injury" report. Dumb article.
I personally don't mind the Ravens at all and would root for them if  the Steelers weren't my team. I only speak for myself, but I have a ton of respect for the Ravens and the way they play the game. Gotta agree on this being a dumb article. I'd expect every team to have a few more minor ailments than usual in training camp this year just because of the lockout, but that's only my opinion.
