Reports: Ravens LB Sergio Kindle arrested
By James Walker
On the same day the Baltimore Ravens (11-4) clinched their third straight playoff berth, one of their 2010 draft picks provided some bad news.
Baltimore second-round pick Sergio Kindle, who is inactive this season, was reportedly arrested early Sunday on drunken driving charges in Maryland. The linebacker suffered a fractured skull after falling down two flights of stairs earlier in July, which put Kindle's football future in question.
This arrest certainly won't help Kindle's standing. The Ravens are charging toward the playoffs and the last thing they need is negative press, especially from a player not on the active roster. Kindle still hasn't been cleared by doctors as he tries to get healthy for the 2011 season.
