Out at Baltimore Ravens Training Camp in Owings Mills, Sergio Kindle is making some noise and impressing coach John Harbaugh during practice.
Harbaugh praised the effort of Sergio Kindle in some post-practice comments to the media quoted by Luke Jones. “Sergio’s going to give us a pass rush,” Harbaugh explained. “To what extent? We’ll have to wait and see, but he’s playing very well.”
The Ravens and Kindle, who fractured his skull after being drafted by the Ravens in 2010, are working with the NFL to allow the Ravens linebacker to be able wear a special helmet with a microphone to help with him permanent loss of hearing in his left ear.
“We were told by most doctors that the chances of him ever being able to play football again at any kind of level were very slim,” Harbaugh said. “The healing process that’s taken place has pretty much astounded most of the doctors from what I’m told.”
Kindle played sparingly in 2011 and still doesn’t have an NFL tackle to his name. Part of his lack of playing time can be attributed to his issues learning the Ravens playbook last season. Apparently, he’s put that behind him this summer.
