Two Ravens rookie defensive linemen injured on same play in practice

Injuries are an unavoidable part of life in training camp, a truth that the Ravens were reminded of twice on the same play during Wednesday’s practice.

Rookie defensive end Brent Urban and rookie defensive tackle Timmy Jernigan were the unlucky members of the squad. Aaron Wilson of the Baltimore Sun reports that it looks like Urban, a fourth-round pick, suffered the more serious blow.

Urban needed to be helped off the field by members of the training staff and was then carted back to the team’s facility for further evaluation. Per Wilson, Urban, who had ankle surgery in February, was unable to put weight on his right leg following the injury. Jernigan “appeared to be favoring his back” as he also made his way from the field before the end of practice.

Wilson also reports that linebackers Daryl Smith and Albert McClellan did not practice on Wednesday, although there’s no reason given for either man’s absence.

    Not surprised – they look like a couple of dummies to me. Captain Comeback’s bro better check the CBA too.

    “Next rookie up”, I guess.

    Man, you hate seeing this type of stuff regardless of what team you root for.

    When I saw a headline starting with “Two Ravens…” I figured the arrest meter was going to need to be reset.

    Both would get used and abused against Joe Thomas, Alex Mack, Joel Bitonio, John Greco and Alex Schwartz anyway. You think they hurt now, going against those bad boys they will feel a lot worse.

    Well thank you for that astute observation. Truly riveting.

    That sucks. Hoping Jernigan at least is very minor. Urban’s sounds season ending.

    wow. lots of trolls. seriously, who cheers for injuries

    “Keystone Ravens” is a more suitable name for the team.

    no, but give a standing ovation to a wife beater.

    scoobies05, I don’t see a single post rooting for the injury. The closest is the one who talks about karma.

    You have to realize Raven fans like to complain about trolls before they appear. It goes along with perceived versus real slights. Maybe paranoid and delusional are more fitting.

    Injuries are not something to ever cheer for period.

    People are disgusting. Some cheer for injuries, others even cheer on wife beaters. Where does it end?

    Cheering for a wife beater is gonna jinx the ravens.

    “Instant Karma’s gonna get you, gonna knock you right on the head. You better get yourself together, pretty soon you’re gonna be dead.”

    Karma would say it’s payback for bad deeds done by the team (players, coaches and management).

    I won’t mention beating up women but you can think that if you want. And supporting those who beat women is as bad as doing it.

    I hope these guys are OK and can try to make the team next year.

    gentlemen I apologize. I misread a post. my mistake

  18. raiderapologist says: Jul 30, 2014 7:47 PM

    I’m surprised the league hasn’t published a study showing that 50.17% of players that suffer training camp injuries did not properly train during the off season.

    Did they both collide going after jump ball # 100 that afternoon?
