Bernard Pierce, Deonte Thompson Injuries Not Considered Serious


The injuries suffered by running back Bernard Pierce and wide receiver Deonte Thompson in Thursday's first preseason game are not considered serious, per Head Coach John Harbaugh.

Neither player practiced Saturday afternoon in the team's first meeting since the game.

"No comment on any injury situation," Harbaugh said Saturday. "If something's serious, I'll let you know. I'm not going to get into every little nick and bruise that happens. If it's serious, I'll let you know."

According to Aaron Wilson of The Baltimore Sun, Pierce suffered a sprained left knee and doesn't have any structural damage. There has been no update on Thompson, who appeared to suffer an injury to his lower left leg.

Safety Omar Brown, wide receiver David Reed and cornerback Chris Johnson returned to the field Saturday. Reed did not do full-team drills* *and Johnson wore a red non-contact jersey and also sat out 11-on-11 work.

Inside linebacker Bryan Hall (undisclosed) and defensive end Marcus Spears (undisclosed) joined the list of usual players not practicing: guard Marshal Yanda (shoulder), tight end Ed Dickson (hamstring), center Ryan Jensen (undisclosed) and linebacker Jameel McClain (back).
