Rookie Running Back Kenneth Dixon Leaves Game Early


As if tight end Benjamin Watson's Achilles injury wasn't painful enough, the Ravens suffered another injury Saturday night in their third preseason game.

Promising rookie running back Kenneth Dixon left the game in the second quarter with a knee sprain and did not return.

"Does not look like an overly serious injury," Head Coach John Harbaugh said. "We'll see tomorrow with the MRI, but there's some optimism there."

Dixon was trying to push forward on a goal-line carry when Lions defensive tackle and former Raven Haloti Ngata hit his lower leg. Dixon crumbled to the turf and was in obvious pain as trainers ran out to meet him.

The rookie fourth-round pick left the game with a trainer supporting his weight undereach arm.

Dixon led the Ravens in rushing after their first two preseason games and led the team again in the third preseason game as he had six rushes for 41 yards. After Forsett, Dixon was the first running back off the bench, before Terrance West and Buck Allen.
