A year after fracturing his skull and missing then entire 2011 season, Sergio Kindle is back and ready to prove himself in he National Football League.  In the Ravens first preseason game of the year, the team is expected Kindle to suit up and play against the Philadelphia Eagles.

According to Mike Duffy of BaltimoreRavens.com, the team has maintained the position that anything they get from Kindle in 2011 is a bonus, however the pass rusher has been able to return to full contact since the Ravens opened camp two weeks ago.

“We’re being pretty cautious with him still,” Pagano said. “He jumped in there [Monday] and did a little bit of special teams and he got a few reps here and there. But we’re making sure we don’t push him too hard and he has another setback.”

On the opposite side of the ball, Baltimore will be sitting tight end Ed Dickson as he rests a pulled hamstring that he suffered last week.
