Sergio Kindle out 3 weeks with fractured skull

Sergio Kindle, who was in "stable" condition at a hospital Sunday after falling down two flights of stairs while in Austin, Texas over the weekend, will miss all of Ravens' training camp with a fractured skull, according to Baltimore head coach John Harbaugh at a team press conference.

The word floated out from the presser to Twitter, and multiple sources have confirmed that Kindle is not permitted to travel for up to three weeks.

Obviously this is a big setback for the Ravens and their second-round rookie. The good news is that Kindle is okay (and that the Ravens just signed Terrence Cody). The bad news is that while he could still join the team in time for the season opener, the question as to how much he can actually help quickly.

Harbaugh's statement indicated something about a "wrong turn" "in the dark" when discussing how Kindle suffered his injury.

Sergio Kindle 'stable' after accident

Sergio Kindle is in 'stable' condition after suffering a head injury in a Thursday night accident at a house in Austin, Texas.

According to the Baltimore Sun , "it is believed" Kindle fell down two flights of stairs.

“Members of our medical staff, including Bill Tessendorf and Dr. Andy Tucker, have spoken with doctors in Texas. We understand Sergio is stable at this time and that he is being tested and observed,” Ozzie Newsome, said the Ravens’ general manager.

The good news is that Kindle seems to be okay; he'll likely miss some training camp time, though. Rookies are supposed to report tomorrow, but Kindle won't make it.

We'll keep you updated if we hear anything else about the Thursday night stair-falling accident in Austin, Texas.
