Sergio Kindle will head to Baltimore next week

More than a month after Ravens linebacker Sergio Kindle fractured his skull, the team’s top pick in the 2010 draft will head to Baltimore by the end of next week.

Jamison Hensley of the Baltimore Sun reports the team will give him a medical evaluation when he arrives.  To this point, Kindle hasn’t been cleared to even get on a plane out of Texas where he suffered the injury falling down a flight of stairs.

Kindle remains unsigned and that doesn’t figure to change until the Ravens get a better handle on his long-term prognosis.  His status for the 2010 season and beyond remains a total mystery at this point without knowing more information. 

At the very least, Kindle is expected to start year on the physically unable to perform list.

    So glad the Pats passed on this guy. Tough bid for someone with a lot of promise.

    Hopefully theirs no stairs he can fall down at Ravens camp
    This guy should be nicknamed Slinky

    Bad pun about “head”ing to Baltimore

  4. robert ethen says: Aug 24, 2010 10:49 AM

    Just keep him away from the exit doors on that plane.

  5. Ocho says: Aug 24, 2010 10:51 AM

    Waiting for all the ravens fans to get up and talk about how great their front office is? I have time…

  6. Burning River says: Aug 24, 2010 10:52 AM

    Maybe, while in Baltimore, Kindle and Art Modell can roll around together and commiserate over their chances of ever getting into the NFL Hall of Fame.
    Sergio’s chances are about a million times better.

  7. LunarPie says: Aug 24, 2010 10:57 AM

    Maybe somebody that thought he was gonna win their spot pushed him.

  8. Gregjennings85 says: Aug 24, 2010 10:57 AM

    Pun intended?

  9. kitchn says: Aug 24, 2010 11:07 AM

    this guys has a lot of steps before he ever plays a game

  10. SFTitanfan says: Aug 24, 2010 11:07 AM

    I’m pretty sure they made up the story of him falling down the stairs and “fracturing his skull”. It’s probably a cover up of something else that would make him, the Ravens or most importantly the NFL look bad.
    How falls down stairs besides 85 grandmothers??

  11. lieutenant Dan's Ice Cream says: Aug 24, 2010 11:13 AM

    I really don’t see how Newsome or DeCosta can be blamed for this Ocho. Sure they drafted an idiot but the Bengals draft at least 3 of them per year.
    Newsome isn’t known as one of the best without reason. Keep in mind no one is 100% in the draft anyways, but you can’t really call a guy a total bust when he was a second round pick and has an injury/medical condition. This isn’t a Jamarcus Russell or Andre Smith type situation either. Time will tell on Sergio.

  12. ravensam says: Aug 24, 2010 11:15 AM

    Ocho, Are you suggesting that any good front office would have known that he would eventually fall down the steps and therefore pass on him in the draft. Wow. I wont say anything bad about the Bengals…its like making fun of a midget in a slam dunk contest.

  13. DemocratsAreStupid says: Aug 24, 2010 11:18 AM

    The Ravens front office is great

  14. Heinekenfun says: Aug 24, 2010 11:21 AM

    I’d like to commend the Ravens front office on another fine draft. Granted.., Kindle’s accident has put a delay on his ability to prove himself, but the rest of the 2010 draft class is demonstrating themselves very well. Terrance “cheesburger’ Cody is pure bad-ass in the middle. He’ll be shutting down the run w/ Ngata for years to come; Ed Dickson and Dennis Pitta are two pass catching TE’s that have had a strong camp and will be increasing the offensive pass options starting this season; WR David Reed has show his ability to make the tough catches and add depth to the passing game; And both Arthur Jones & Ramon Harewoood are proving to be late round projects with huge upsides, bring strong depth on the Def. and Offensive lines, respectively.
    Not bad at all.

    I know you meant WHO..
    And obviously you haven’t been paying attention to all the HIT STEALING posts these guys throw up. He was obviously intoxicated and stumbled down the stairs at a buddy’s place, getting up to piss in the middle of the night.

    “How falls down stairs besides 85 grandmothers??”
    Drunks fall down the stairs like that and Kindle’s got a history of hard drinking IIRC.

  17. BenRapistberger says: Aug 24, 2010 11:27 AM

    Wasn’t it two flights of stairs?

    You’re right man. Just because the first two picks in the history of the franchise (Ogden and Ray Lewis) are going to the Hall of Fame, and just because they have more players that were drafted by them in the NFL on one team or another than any other team, that’s no reason to brag, right? Why don’t you go ask the head coach of the Bungles exactly where he cut his teeth? Or maybe you can ask Mike Smith, Jack Del Rio, Mike Nolan, Mike Singletary, or Rex Ryan.
    Lemme ask you this, Mr. Brain Surgeon; If Kindle had been sitting at a traffic light and someone plows into him and paralysis him, does that mean Ozzie Newsome had a bad draft?
    BTW, didn’t your team draft Akili Smith?
    Go ahead, I have time…..

  19. MdLawBirds says: Aug 24, 2010 11:35 AM

    The Ravens knew he had narcolepsy before the draft. I’ll bet he forgot to take his meds when this happened. I worked for a guy with narcolepsy and he could drop his head and fall asleep at anytime when he forgot his meds and then he would wake up and not know he even fell asleep.

  20. realitypolice says: Aug 24, 2010 11:41 AM

    I have a Kindle. I read books on it.

    ==================
    I think Mel Kiper did actually have him rated fairly high on “falldownability”.

  22. Catamount says: Aug 24, 2010 11:43 AM

    The stadium is new. They have ramps and elevators.

  23. thebronconator says: Aug 24, 2010 12:10 PM

    Hopefully when he gets into baltimore he uses the ramp instead of the stairs to deboard the plane.

  24. Cereal Blogger says: Aug 24, 2010 12:28 PM

    ooooohhh, Ocho got burned
    There is more to this story, cant wait to hear it. I think Kindle’s career could be over

  25. Ocho says: Aug 24, 2010 12:30 PM

    @Theravenlives2 Im actually not a Bengals fan at all…im just tired of all of u bird fans talkin about how great your front office is and how great this yrs draft was. Enjoy your 8-8 season

  26. 100 no's and 1 yes still mean yes says: Aug 24, 2010 12:51 PM

    I like how u guys criticize the front office for picking him like they knew this was gonna happen lol

  27. TheBengal13 says: Aug 24, 2010 1:11 PM

    The ravenlives2:
    It’s “paralyze him”. Not “paralysis him”. Sounds you got one good Baltimore edumacation there, brother.
    Also, for the “Akili Smith’s” that the Bengals have drafted, there’s also been the 7th round T.J. Houshmandzadeh (you remember him right? He used to tear your little purple birdies apart for 5 years), Chad Ochocinco in the second round (I recently heard he has ownership rights to the Ravens Defense), Carson Palmer (went in on the rights with Chad), Johnathan Joseph and Leon Hall (the guys who held Baltimore to 7 points in the second meeting last year) and I can go on and on. But, thanks for bringing up Akili, that wasn’t 12 years ago or anything. ‘Gloid.

    @Ocho
    Care to go into detail as to how the ravens will have an 8-8 season? Our best and 3rd best corners are finally back healthy, Suggs is dominant again, the front seven is great, with everyday passing it seems more and more likely Ed Reed will start against the jets on the season opener, the passing attack is much upgraded, and the ravens only have the 12th hardest schedule in the nfl. Now taking all of that into consideration, what did you say our record will be?

  29. The Real Shuxion says: Aug 24, 2010 1:18 PM

    Maybe he will…..fall….into the starting defense.

    refresh my memory, chief. Exactly how many playoff games have the Bungals won in the past 10 years? Go ahead, I’m waiting…

  31. Danwhitmer says: Aug 24, 2010 1:41 PM

    Ocho :
    We do have a great front office. Top 3 in the NFL. That is nothing to be mad about… The teelers are right there but that is about it. Who else would you put infront of them ?
    The Ravens will have a good year this year. Barring any more big injuries I think they will get 11 wins, then into the playoffs.
    Last thing as I am just curious, who are you a fan of ?

    Hmmm, and when’s the last time anyone used the phase “classic underachievers” to describe my team? I hear it used to describe yours all the time. Win a playoff game…then you can talk.

  33. georgeanderson says: Aug 24, 2010 2:15 PM

    Art Modell deserves to be in the Hall of Fame. He was a business owner who made a decision on what is best for his franchise. He did alot for the players and the fans in Cleveland. Cleveland only had to wait 3 seasons for a new team and new stadium. Look at all the cities who have lost pro teams and have never gotten one back or waited many years. Art helped make the owners tons of money with the TV contracts, he did alot for the league that you won’t see on the field.
    The move essentially created two new organizations. One franchise is considered an elite franchise, while the other provides a city with no hope something to cheer about during the fall.
    Don’t try to say Cleveland is a nice place, its not. If it was people would vacation there and want to live there. You don’t live in Cleveland unless you were born there or had to take a job there. Who says “lets go to Cleveland”? Cleveland in the spring is something you have to see- it might be the closest thing we have to bears coming out of hibernation. Cleveland girls putting on bikinis after adding winter weight and all that pale skin…gross! It is called the “mistake by the lake”,not the United States Riviera. ” Their most well known fan section is called the “dog pound”, the dog pound is a place where you find unwanted or abused animals, it is castoffs. Get over your hatered of Modell, Cleveland, you have your franchise with all of your legacy. And do the rest of us a favor and give up the Rock and Roll HOF, you can have the world record eating contest museum.
    As for Sergio, dude needs to take his meds and think about a new career path. Ravens will recover and get some kid next year. Ozzie is the greatest GM ever. He drafts guys who change the position- not every pick but show me a GM who has drafted like that in the current era of NFL.

    i’m still waiting for the real story to be told here.

  35. granadafan says: Aug 24, 2010 6:16 PM

    We could MAYBE give him a pass if he fell down the stairs. No, Kindle claims he fell down TWO (2) flights of stairs. How the hell does someone fall down one flight and then make at least a 90 degree turn to fall down the second flight?
    Hey, Kindle, Jeff Kent called and he wants his lousy injury excuse back.

  36. Ravenator says: Aug 24, 2010 6:26 PM

    In other news, Kindle is reportedly ahead of schedule and will possibly (probably) make a return after his stint on the PUP list. I bet you every kindle-hater is proved wrong come week 12….BET ON IT!!!

    Ahem…since 2004, these gems have been Bengals’ 1st or 2nd rounders:
    Chris Perry
    Keiwan Ratliff
    Madieu Williams
    David Pollack
    Odell Thurman
    Kenny Irons
    Jerome Simpson
    Andre Smith
    Kid yourself about all the “great” draft picks in recent Bungles history, but you know that an Ozzie Newsome draft class would have won more than zero playoff games in the past generation with all those premium picks to use.
    Enjoy another year as the 3rd best football team in Ohio.
