At a point in the season when the Ravens could use a push in their pass rush, linebacker Sergio Kindle continues to work on the periphery, on his own time schedule, with his own set of challenges. The second-round draft pick is, however, making progress from a hairline fracture of his skull, an injury he suffered three days before training camp started. "The only thing I'm working on now is my balance," Kindle said this week. "My balance with my eyes open is perfect. The thing is, when I close my eyes, they say that's when it's off some.

Rolando McClain's professional football career just ended with a thud ("Rolando McClain will retire from NFL," May 16). At the young age of 23 years, he has chosen to retire from the NFL before he even appeared in a Ravens jersey. To be blunt, he's a jerk with skewed priorities. He was recently arrested for the third time since he turned pro. Instead of manning up to confront his demons, he chose the low road and decided to retire. His decision smacks of hypocrisy and cowardice. This proves to me that even the stellar Ravens' brass makes occasional mistakes (see Sergio Kindle)

Buried in our Ravens notebook in Tuesday's paper was a nugget about Sergio Kindle getting the green light to play in Thursday's preseason game against the Eagles. That's right, Kindle is finally making his Ravens debut. Kindle has been practicing with the team since the start of training camp, so there is nothing surprising about this revelation -- that's why it didn't get a bigger headline -- but new defensive coordinator Chuck Pagano confirming Monday that the outside linebacker will play Thursday is exciting news for the Ravens.

The Ravens today signed guard-center Reggie Stephens to fill out their practice squad. There was an opening after the team waived outside linebacker and former second-round pick Sergio Kindle yesterday. Stephens, who played his college football at Iowa State, was a seventh-round draft pick of the Cincinnati Bengals in 2010. He has also been with the Buffalo Bills and the Chicago Bears, but he's still yet to see action in an NFL regular-season game yet. Stephens, 25, is 6-foot-3 and 300 pounds.

Two years after the Ravens selected him in the second round of the 2010 NFL draft, linebacker Sergio Kindle has yet to make a start, a tackle or a significant impact on the team's fortunes. An opportunity has presented itself to Kindle in the form of a season-threatening Achilles injury to Terrell Suggs, but he insists his mindset hasn't changed. To him, every season is make or break. “I feel that way every year because I haven't proven anything yet,” Kindle said Wednesday.

In the five months since he suffered a fractured skull, Sergio Kindle has been optimistic he would play football for the Ravens. But Tuesday night, following a conversation with his doctor at Sinai Hospital, the second-round draft pick raised doubt on his Twitter account that he will be able to play in 2011. And Wednesday, upon meeting with reporters, Kindle said his football future remains in limbo. "Basically, they're just saying they don't know," Kindle said of his medical team.

We haven’t heard much from Ravens coach John Harbaugh since April’s NFL draft. Sequestered in his office until the end of the lockout, Harbaugh and his staff have been busy tinkering with Xs and Os -- he recently talked to our Mike Preston at length about that -- and making a plan of attack for whenever a new collective bargaining agreement is reached between the players and the owners. Harbaugh came out of hiding on Thursday to publicly discuss the Ravens’ offseason plans on WBAL Radio.

Sergio Kindle said Wednesday that he couldn't help but feel a little disappointed he wasn't activated for the Ravens Week 1 game against the Steelers, but only because he's so anxious to play again after missing all of last season with a skull fracture.     "I didn't ask for a reason," Kindle said. "I just have to keep working hard to prove myself. "    Kindle's career as a Raven hasn't exactly gotten off to the strongest of starts, when you combine his skull fracture -- which happened before he even signed a contract -- with the fact that he was charged with driving while intoxicated.

I’ve got good news for fans holding out hope that Sergio Kindle will suit up for the Ravens in 2011 (and beyond): The second-year linebacker told The San Antonio Express-News he was cleared to resume playing football in March and he already has visions of watching himself on “SportsCenter” highlights dancing through his head. “First and foremost, we have to wait for the lockout,” said Kindle, who missed the entire 2010 season with a fractured skull he suffered when he fell down a flight of stairs the week before training camp.

In the days leading up to Friday's final cutdown, third-year linebacker Sergio Kindle was viewed as the highest-profile Raven on the roster bubble. But Kindle survived the final round of cuts for one main reason: his ability to get after the quarterback. “Sergio's potential as a pass rusher is something that's really important,” Ravens coach John Harbaugh said Tuesday. With Terrell Suggs out with an Achilles injury and rookie Courtney Upshaw still ailing with a sprained shoulder, the Ravens didn't feel they had the luxury of getting rid of a potential pass-rush threat.

Well, it has been a quiet week at the Under Armour Performance Center. Let's see, where to begin? Ray Lewis and Lardarius Webb were lost for the season with injuries. A bunch of Ravens were caught in a nightclub during a shooting. Ed Reed dropped a bombshell about a torn labrum in his shoulder that was previously unknown. And Terrell Suggs teased everyone by saying he might play superhero and return early from that partially torn Achilles tendon when the Ravens take on the Houston Texans at Reliant Stadium.

Ravens All-Pro outside linebacker Terrell Suggs could play Sunday against the Houston Texans. The Ravens on Saturday activated the reigning NFL Defensive Player of the Year from the physically-unable-to-perform list, a procedural move required under league rules for him to be eligible to play. The team has decided to play Suggs if he feels and looks good after pregame warm-ups, according to sources familiar with the situation. The Ravens have until one hour before the game to designate their inactive players.

Shortly before the NFL draft three years ago, the Ravens flew in mercurial wide receiver Dez Bryant for a visit. The Oklahoma State standout met with Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome and Harbaugh and went out to dinner with offensive coordinator Cam Cameron. However, Bryant was drafted by Dallas with the 24th overall pick of the first round. And the Ravens subsequently traded their 25th overall pick to the Broncos, dropping out of the first round in exchange for second-round, third-round and fourth-round selections used to pick linebacker Sergio Kindle and tight ends Pitta and Ed Dickson.

Ravens undrafted rookie wide receiver Deonte Thompson was simply too tired to fret about the next 24 hours after catching a touchdown, six balls for 68 yards and returning three kicks for 94 yards. Quarterback Curtis Painter has been through this before so the last thing he was going to do was drive himself crazy pondering his status. Defensive tackle Bryan Hall can joke about pretty much anything, and that includes his spot on the roster bubble. The Ravens finished the preseason Thursday night with an otherwise forgettable performance in a 31-17 loss to the St. Louis Rams at a mostly empty Edward Jones Dome.

ST. LOUIS - Even before playing extensively in tonight's preseason finale against the St. Louis Rams, Ravens' third-year linebacker Sergio Kindle hoped that he had already done enough to survive the final roster cuts. However, Kindle, who has been active for just two regular season games since he was selected in the second round of the 2010 draft, admitted that he'll still feel some anxiety Friday when the Ravens have to trim their roster from 75 to 53 by 9 p.m. Though coaches have lauded Kindle for the progress that he's made during training camp, they've stopped well short of saying that he is a lock to make the team, and Kindle knows that his performance tonight will certainly factor in that decision.

Ravens rookie Asa Jackson celebrated with an impromptu dance, blissfully unaware that his electrifying punt return for a touchdown had been nullified by a holding penalty on Nigel Carr. His elation was short-lived. After crisscrossing the field and scooting 85 yards into the end zone during the third quarter of the Ravens' 27-12 loss to the Detroit Lions on Friday night at M&T Bank Stadium, Jackson had to settle for a gain of 40 yards. "I got into the end zone, and I got to do my celebration," the cornerback said.
