The Ravens' rookie LB apparently was apparently visiting a friend's house in Austin TX over the weekend when he missed a step while walking in the dark and fell down 2 flights of stairs. Adam Schefter is reporting the extent of the injury. Kindle will remain in the hospital for at least 3 weeks.

Last December a friend and SoSHer fractured his skull when his dogs' leashes got entangled with his legs and he was tripped onto a cement walkway. I saw him over the weekend for the first time since and while he looked great, it's been a long road back and he's still not 100% healed. So for a guy like Kindle, whose profession involves the constant risk of helmet-to-helmet contact, this won't be a quick recovery. I doubt he's back on the field before Christmas, if at all this season.

Tough break for the Ravens after such a phenomenal draft.

I know he was a favorite of some people before the draft. The Pats really dodged a bullet on that one.

Yeah, IR for sure. Perhaps more.

Hard to call this one dodging a bullet. He almost certainly wouldn't have suffered this injury if the Pats had drafted him.

apparently he's narcoleptic

Baltimore Ravens rookie linebacker Sergio Kindle(notes) recently fell down two flights of stairs late one night in Austin, Texas, and fractured his skull. His former coach at the University of Texas, Mack Brown, says that Kindle has narcolepsy, according to OrangeBloods.com.

That's awful, but how do you fall down two flights of stairs? You really have to work at it.

Not if both flights are connected to one another and separated by a small corner turn. You fall down most of the first set, then your momentum takes you down the second. I mean, is it really that complicated a scenario to comprehend? I don't think they meant that he fell down a flight of stairs, then somehow made his way to a second flight where he again took a spill.

Perhaps he did; he does have ADD after all.

I'm sorry to joke, I hope he's ok, but I just haven't heard of a 22 year old man, let alone a professional athlete, falling down the stairs.

It happened to my older brother at 23. We were at a family reuinion, staying at a relative's new house, and he got up to piss in the middle of the night. Still drowsy, he forgot he wasn't home, opened what he thought was the bathroom door, and stepped into the thin air above the basement stairs instead. Black eye, broken nose, fat lip, concussion.

On a semi-related note,

Baltimore Ravens starting cornerback Domonique Foxworth tore his anterior cruciate ligament in Thursday's practice and will miss the coming season.

The veteran was hurt Thursday during an informal practice period. Coach John Harbaugh said Friday that Foxworth tore his ACL without being touched.

http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/trainingcamp10/news/story?id=5423019

That's a big loss for the Ravens, as Foxworth has been developing into a really good corner. Combined with the Kindle injury and Ed Reed's hip troubles, the Ravens are going to have some holes to fill on defense.

That skull must have been pretty badly fractured...

This is what economists call a "sunk cost".

"It wasn't much."

Kindle's blood alcohol content measured .17 percent, far above the legal limit of .08 percent, according to the charging document. The paperwork offers new details of the 23-year-old's arrest in a gold Cadillac sedan that police said was swerving and following another car too closely on northbound U.S. 1 and speeding at 70 mph on Route 32.

Howard County Officer Stuart A. Hammond wrote in the report that when he approached the car after pulling it over shortly after 4 a.m. Sunday, "Kindle had a strong odor of an alcoholic beverage on his breath, his eyes were bloodshot/glassy, his speech was slurred and he admitted to having 'a few drinks' at a club in Washington, D.C."
