After the Ravens’ 27-23 preseason win over the Atlanta Falcons, head coach John Harbaugh painted a positive picture from a health standpoint.

Outside linebacker Elvis Dumervil suffered a minor groin injury and rookie safety Matt Elam tweaked his ankle, but the head coach described both as “fine” after the game. Dumervil also downplayed any significance to his ailment in the Baltimore locker room.

“Nothing really injury-wise came out of this game,” Harbaugh said of the injury picture. “So that’s a positive.”

According to The Sun, reserve outside linebacker Adrian Hamilton injured his wrist and will have further tests on it Friday. Rookie defensive tackle Brandon Williams was also shaken up in the second half of Thursday’s game but returned to action soon thereafter.

Last week against Tampa Bay, the Ravens lost wide receiver Deonte Thompson (ankle), running back Bernard Pierce (knee), and defensive tackle Marcus Spears (hamstring) and only Pierce has returned to practice at this point.

    I am not a Ravens fan, but the headline of this story pretty much says it all as far as pre-season games are concerned. No serious (or significant) injuries = successful game.

    Dittos. These games are a disaster waiting to happen. They are a rip off to the season ticket holders and should be sold as individual tickets.
