    Second-round rookie hospitalized with head injury
    Posted by Mike Florio on July 25, 2010 3:56 PM ET
    It's been a rough weekend for rookies. On Saturday, a third-rounder was arrested. Before that, a second-rounder suffered a head injury.

    We've confirmed that Ravens linebacker Sergio Kindle has been hospitalized with a head injury suffered on Thursday night. A league source tells us that Kindle initially had some swelling inside his skull, but the situation has since improved significantly.

    "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 release posted on the team's website.

    The team says that Kindle supposedly fell down "two flights of stairs." There was some initial skepticism regarding the contention, but apparently no effort will be made for now to debunk Kindle's claim.

    The former Texas standout has yet to sign a contract. One league source predicted that, given their track record, the Ravens likely will offer Kindle a fair deal based on his slot as the 43rd overall pick in the draft, regardless of the injury. It remains to be seen whether they do that, or whether they wait to confirm that Kindle will be OK.

    Maybe that Ravens draft wasn't so good afterall. Reminds me a little of the Antonio Bryant draft. I can't remember the name of that talented corner that didn't pan out that year. It looked good on paper just didn't amount to much.

    Speaking of which, any word on Giants safety Chad Jones? Did the Giants offer him a contract? Will he be able to walk? How soon?

    The Ravens draft graded out superb on paper. In hindsight, they should have just kept the pick and signed Dez Bryant. Looks like their draft will be getting an F.

    I heard on the radio that he has been in the hospital for 4 days and that the full story still hasn't come out about how this exactly happened. The only report so far is that he fell down 2 flight of stairs. Time will tell I suppose.
