Ravens defensive lineman Kapron Lewis-Moore suffered a serious Achilles injury Sunday that likely will end his season, coach John Harbaugh told reporters. The 2013 sixth-round pick did not play at all last season while recovering from an ACL injury.
Under new offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak, the Ravens have a different mindset and plan to be a run-first team again, reports ESPN.com. The revamped offensive line has pushed defenders off the line, and running backs Ray Rice and Bernard Pierce "are lighter, and as a result, more explosive," the report said.
A stomach ailment that prevented Bengals outside linebacker Vontaze Burfict from practicing Wednesday did the same Thursday. It remains to be seen if he recovers in time to play Sunday night in Arizona.
Bengals rookie cornerback Darqueze Dennard was forced out of Saturday's preseason game against the Jets with a hip injury.
The No. 24 overall pick in this year's draft suffered the injury in the first half. He was ruled out for the remainder of the game and will likely be further evaluated moving forward. The team has not revealed the extent of the injury.
As the Bengals prepare to open training camp this week, they placed nine players on the Physically Unable to Perform list and another three on the Non-Football Injury list. All 12 players can come off both lists at any time.
