Outside linebacker Sergio Kindle was active for the first time this season in the Ravens’ 34-17 victory over the New York Jets Sunday night.
“It’s the best feeling in the world,” said Kindle, who missed last season after fracturing his skull while falling down stairs at a friend’s house during the summer. “It’s been a long time coming as you and everybody else knows. Words can’t even explain it. I’ve been waiting on this for a long time, and it’s finally here. So I’ve got to take it and run with it.”
Kindle played primarily on special teams, but got to rush Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez on the defense’s final two plays of the contest.
“It was great,” Kindle said of playing defense. “But rushing the passer, I didn’t get warm. But it still felt good. Maybe after the third rush, I would’ve been, uh. [Slaps hands together.] But since it was only two, I did the best I could. As long as they didn’t complete the pass and convert, that’s what matters.”
