Safety Kendrick Lewis' Injury Not Serious

Safety Kendrick Lewis avoided a scare on the injury front.

The starting safety left Sunday's game with a leg injury that looked bad on television replay and had him on crutches after the game, but an MRI revealed no ligament damage.

"Nothing serious with Kendrick. Bone bruise," Head Coach John Harbaugh said Wednesday. "That's a very good sign."

Lewis will have an extra day to recover because the Ravens are on Monday Night Football, but it's unclear whether he could return to the field this week. The first injury report of the week will be released Thursday, which will give a better indication of his status.  

"We'll see where it goes throughout the course of the week," Harbaugh said. "He was feeling pretty good today, but those things are hard to predict."

The Ravens are somewhat banged up at safety right now. His backup, Terrence Brooks, missed last week's matchup with a thumb injury, but Harbaugh had no update on his status.

With Lewis and Brooks both going down, the Ravens turned to third-year safety Brynden Trawick to play considerable defensive reps for the first time this season. Trawick finished the game with a tackle and he could be in line for the first start of his career if Lewis and Brooks are both out against the Cardinals.

"Brynden played well on Sunday," Harbaugh said. "He did a good job, which you'd expect. He's practiced well also."
