Ravens Insider: Ravens safety Kyle Hamilton suffers knee injury vs. 49ers, but ‘doesn’t look bad’

After picking off NFL Most Valuable Player candidate Brock Purdy twice Monday night, Ravens safety Kyle Hamilton suffered a knee injury in the fourth quarter of a 33-19 win against the host San Francisco 49ers. But it might not sideline the star defender for very long.

Hamilton went down after making a tackle with 9:43 left in the game and immediately grabbed his left knee. He was attended to by team trainers and limped off to the sideline under his own power before entering the blue medical tent. The Ravens, leading by two touchdowns with around three minutes remaining, later ruled the star defender doubtful to return.

After the game, coach John Harbaugh said it “doesn’t look bad for anybody” when it comes to injuries for the Ravens (12-3), who boast the NFL’s best record and face the Miami Dolphins next week in a battle for the AFC’s top seed. Harbaugh said the team would have more information on Tuesday but is “fairly optimistic” about receiving positive news.

It’s the same knee Hamilton injured two weeks ago in a win over the Los Angeles Rams. He returned to practice the following week wearing a brace on his knee and played in a victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars despite being listed as questionable, recording a team-high seven tackles.

Hamilton has performed at a Pro Bowl if not All-Pro level this season, recording 76 tackles, 10 passes defensed, three sacks, a forced fumble and four interceptions, one of which he returned for a touchdown against the Cleveland Browns on Nov. 12.

Right guard Kevin Zeitler also exited in the fourth quarter with a thigh injury and was ruled questionable to return. Offensive lineman Patrick Mekari, who has been rotating with left tackle Ronnie Stanley over the past few games, was evaluated for a head injury.
