Rookie Sergio Kindle was expected to have a quick impact on the Ravens defense after the club made him a second round pick in the 2010 NFL draft.
Unfortunately, things aren't going as planned.
Kindle suffered a head injury in Austin, TX over the weekend after falling down a flight of stairs. Doctors say he is in "stable condition" at the moment.
"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," Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome said in a statement.
Kindle is currently unsigned and not expected to report to Ravens training camp this week.
Kindle's father, Johnny Walker, told National Football Post in a telephone interview: "Sergio feels like he has had bad luck all his life."
Aaron Wilson of the National Football Post reports his "contract isn't expected to be signed until at least a few more days."
Details of his injury aren't available and it's unclear when he'll be available to return to the team.
The Ravens rookies are scheduled to report on Monday.
