Urban and Jernigan injured


Recommended Posts

Let's hope it's not too serious. I was loving all the progress reports because the D line's future looked bright.




Fourth-round defensive end Brent Urban suffered an injury to his right knee and will undergo a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) exam tonight to determine the severity. Urban was carted off the field.

Head Coach John Harbaugh said he’s concerned about Urban’s injury.

“We’ll just hope and pray for the best on that one,” Harbaugh said.

Second-round pick Timmy Jernigan suffered an injury on the same play, but his did not seem as serious. Jernigan walked off the field under his own power. The nature of his injury is unknown.

New starting center Jeremy Zuttah also got banged up, but he returned to practice.

“Jeremy looks fine, Timmy looks fine,” Harbaugh said.

Jernigan and Urban were injured on a run play. There was a big pile and it seemed that players got tangled up.

Urban and Jernigan have drawn strong reviews so far in camp, and were competing for roles along the defensive line. Urban was praised by Defensive Coordinator Dean Pees for his power and Jernigan has been very explosive and disruptive.

“It’s tough to see anybody go down,” Defensive Line Coach Clarence Brooks said. “[They’re] two young kids that were working pretty hard and working pretty well for us.”http://www.baltimoreravens.com/news/article-1/Two-Ravens-Rookies-Injured-On-Same-Play/9705ae0d-3bbc-4e88-a300-fb53bd0d38a3

Don't like to see anyone hurt but glad to see Jerrigan is OK. Urban was considered a raw prospect when we drafted him. We essentially redshirted Lewis-Moore last year, so we could see a similar rehab with Urban where he comes back ready to play next season.
