Raven stable after stabbing

R. Green is taken to hospital after `bumping' incident


Baltimore Ravens linebacker Roderick Green was stabbed in the stomach early yesterday after what Baltimore County police described as a "bumping-into incident" at a Randallstown bowling center.

Green, 24, was in stable condition at Sinai Hospital, said police spokeswoman Sgt. Vickie Warehime.

Warehime said Green was walking inside the Kings Point Lanes bowling center in the 4100 block of Deer Park Road about 1 a.m. when he accidentally bumped into another man.

After a brief exchange of words, Green left the building - and was followed outside by the other man, who pulled out an unknown sharp weapon and stabbed Green at least once in the stomach, Warehime said.

Green fled, pursued by his attacker until the injured football player outdistanced his assailant.

"Someone called 911 and an ambulance arrived and took Mr. Green to Sinai Hospital," Warehime said.

Green, who is 6 feet 2 and 270 pounds, was a fifth-round draft selection by the Ravens in 2004. He played in college at Central Missouri State.

Green played in nine games with the Ravens his first season and 16 last season, when he had 11 tackles and two sacks.
