Vikings defensive back Mistral Raymond was forced out of Friday's preseason opener against the Raiders in the first half with a possible concussion, the team announced. Raymond left the game in the final minute of the first quarter and was held out as a precaution. He will be further evaluated in the near future.
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.
