Ed Dickson strains hamstring

By Jamison Hensley

Baltimore Ravens tight end Ed Dickson strained his hamstring and was removed from Sunday's practice.

Dickson's injury came eight days after the Ravens lost Dennis Pitta to a season-ending hip injury, putting Dickson atop the depth chart at the position.

Coach John Harbaugh downplayed the injury, saying Dickson could miss about a week.

"We're going to hold him back for a week or so, and we'll see where we're at," Harbaugh said after Monday's practice. "We'll try to get him healthy. It's going to be a matter of time, but it's not going to be a long time."

Visanthe Shiancoe, who signed as a free agent after Pitta's injury, worked with the first team in Dickson's absence.
