Ravens undrafted rookie kicker/punter Kaare Vedvik suffered head and upper-body injuries in an off-the-field incident in East Baltimore early Saturday morning and was transported to Maryland Shock Trauma Center, where he is in stable condition.
In a statement, The Baltimore Police Department said, “at this time, we have not confirmed how his injuries occurred. The injuries are not life-threatening. Investigators are conducting follow-ups in reference to this.”
"Kaare has sustained head injuries and we are monitoring the situation,” the Ravens said in a statement.
A native of Norway, Vedvik has made a great impression in Baltimore. The Marshall product has a huge leg and converted all but one of his field-goal attempts this preseason. He hit a 56-yard field goal in the Ravens' preseason finale Thursday night.
Vedvik made huge strides as a kicker and punter, and it was still to be determined which he would do full-time. He was widely seen as a player who would land a job with another team after cuts, as the Ravens already have established Pro Bowlers Justin Tucker and Sam Koch. However, now Vedvik has been placed on the reserve/non-football injury list.
