Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Michael Campanaro hits injured reserve with back injury Campanaro (back) was placed on injured reserve Saturday.
Campanaro's initial prognosis was that he was week to week with a herniated disc, so the Ravens either opted for surgery or wanted to conceal yet another blow to an already shallow group of receivers while they negotiated a trade for Chris Givens .
With Campanaro out, Steve Smith still nursing a back injury, and first-round draft pick Breshad Perriman (knee) requiring surgery, it looks like Givens, Kamar Aiken , and Marlon Brown will receive the majority of Joe Flacco 's receiver targets in the near future.
Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Michael Campanaro has a herniated disc and is week-to-week, the National Football Post reports.
He will not require surgery, but the injury could take up to six weeks to recover from. Campanaro was injured in Thursday's game against the Ravens after scoring a touchdown earlier in the game on an end around. He has five catches for 35 yards this season.
Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Michael Campanaro exited Thursday's game with a lower-back injury and underwent X-rays, the Baltimore Sun reports.
The report doesn't indicate what the results of Campanaro's X-rays were, but he didn't return to the game after suffering the injury. Steve Smith suffered a lower-back issue of his own Thursday, leaving the Ravens a bit shorthanded at wide receiver. With rookie Breshad Perriman still sidelined as well, the Ravens may need to add depth at wideout before the next game if Smith and/or Campanaro are in danger of missing the contest against the Cleveland Browns next Sunday.
Campanaro was injury prone in college at Wake Forest and had battled through hamstring injuries a year ago in his rookie season. His role is expected to increase this year, though his health is a concern.
Campanaro only had seven catches for 102 yards and a touchdown in 2014.
The severity of the injury is not known, according to sources. In 2014, Campanaro caught seven passes for 102 yards in four games.
