Ravens second-round pick Sergio Kindle may have a hard time getting the boatload of money he’s striving for in the rookie contract he’ll eventually sign if he continues displaying coordination that mirrors that of mine at the age of 5 (Okay, and at the age of now).

The Ravens’ first pick in the 2010 draft fell down two flights of stairs at a home he was visiting in Austin, Texas, according to information released by the team on Sunday.
Kindle, the University of Texas product, is being treated at University Medical Center Brackenridge in Austin and will be unable to report to training camp with the rest of the Ravens’ rookies on Monday.
“We understand Sergio is stable at this time and that he is being tested and observed,” Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome said. The Baltimore Sun reported that Kindle has improved the last few days and is expected to make a full recovery. -Fanhouse
