Wednesday practice saw a number of injuries in Ravens camp.  Rookie DL Brent Urban appeared to suffer a knee injury while being blocked by tackle Jah Reid, who said it “didn’t look good.” Urban had to be carted off the field. Following practice, John Harbaugh echoed Reid’s sentiments and said that Urban would get an MRI tonight.

Fellow rookie DT Timmy Jernigan, who has been a star in camp thus far, went down on the same play as Urban but was able to limp off the field. In the post practice press conference Harbaugh said that Jernigan, who appeared to be favoring his back, “looks fine.” It’s a big sigh of relief for the impressive youngster and the team.
