Kindle To Miss Ravens Camp With Fractured Skull
An off-the-field stumble will cost Ravens rookie linebacker Sergio Kindle at least three weeks on the field and likely much more than that. Ravens coach John Harbaugh says Kindle suffered a fractured skull when he reportedly fell down two flights of stairs at a house in Austin, Texas on Thursday. Doctors aren't going to allow Kindle to travel for three weeks so he will miss at least that period of time, but there is a chance it could be longer. Kindle was a second rounder, the team's first pick in this past draft, and now he'll likely miss all of training camp.

Ole Miss football coach Houston Nutt confirmed today that former University of Oregon starting quarterback Jeremiah Masoli, who was kicked off the Ducks team after his second arrest in six months, has sent Ole Miss his scholarship release papers from Oregon. Head coach Houston Nutt confirmed via text message to The Commercial Appeal that Masoli "e-mailed us his release as I'm sure he did to several schools." This comes right after freshman quarterback Raymond Cotton told Ole Miss he is leaving the university.
