Elvis Dumervil, Matt Elam Fine After Minor Injuries


The Ravens came away from Thursday's preseason home opener with a 27-23 victory over the Atlanta Falcons, but perhaps the best news was that they also came out healthy.

Baltimore suffered only minor injuries in the game.

Outside linebacker Elvis Dumervil suffered a "slight groin," and first-round pick Matt Elam "had a little ankle," Head Coach John Harbaugh said after the game.

"The really positive thing is nothing really came out of this game injury-wise," Harbaugh said. 

Dumervil reiterated to reporters in the locker room that the groin tweak is no cause for concern.

"I'm fine," he said with a big smile.

Getting out of the contest healthy is always a concern during the preseason. In last week's opener, wide receiver Deonte Thompson suffered a sprained foot and running back Bernard Pierce had a knee bruise. Neither injury is considered serious, but both of those players sat out Thursday's game.

Defensive lineman Marcus Spears (hamstring), tight end Ed Dickson (hamstring), right guard Marshal Yanda (shoulder) and cornerback Lardarius Webb (ACL) also did not play in the game, as the Ravens are being cautious in their recoveries.
