Michael Campanaro Sprains Toe, Will Be Out 'A Little While'


Michael Campanaro is unfortunately injured again.

The Ravens' oft-injured wide receiver sprained his toe during Wednesday's Organized Team Activities (OTAs) practice, Head Coach John Harbaugh announced.

"He'll be out for a little while," Harbaugh said. "It's not a serious injury, but it's a nuisance for sure. He was practicing very well."

The good news is Campanaro avoided anything major, and would seemingly be able to return for training camp at the latest.

The bad news is it's another frustrating setback for the local River Hill High School product, and one that will reignite concern around Baltimore about whether Campanaro will be able to stay on the field.

Campanaro has shown flashes of his playmaking potential as a slot receiver and returner, but has struggled to stay on the field long enough to show much more.

The 2014 seventh-round pick played in just four games as a rookie because of a thigh injury. His second season was cut short after just four games because of a back injury suffered in Pittsburgh – after he had scored an impressive leaping touchdown on a jet sweep.

Last year, a calf injury also suffered during OTAs knocked him out of offseason work and lingered into training camp. He re-aggravated it and was released with an injury settlement, but re-signed to the practice squad and was activated to the 53-man roster in December.

As always, whenever he got the ball in his hands, Campanaro was dynamic. Though he didn't catch a pass in three games, he ran three jet sweeps for 72 yards.

Now Campanaro will have to try to once again shake off an injury and prove worthy of a roster spot and substantial offensive role.
