No setbacks for Cundiff

Billy Cundiff converted a 36-yard field goal and three extra points in the Ravens’ 24-10 win against the Indianapolis Colts Sunday, but he was replaced on kickoffs in the second half by punter Sam Koch.

But coach John Harbaugh said Cundiff did not suffer a setback with his injured left calf.

“Not a major concern,” Harbaugh said of Cundiff’s injury during his weekly news conference Monday. “It’s good that he’ll have more rest. I think he tweaked it on Thursday. So he got through the game OK, but it started tightening up on him during the game on kickoffs. So we should get him seven more days of rest and some kicking. We probably won’t kick him a lot, but he should be fine for the game.”

Although Koch handled kickoffs in the second half, Harbaugh said he would not have attempted a field goal if the situation arose.

“We were OK with Billy on field goals,” Harbaugh said. “We had never thought about Sam yet. If you’re asking if Billy were to go down, Sam can get out there further than people would probably think. We’ve had him in practice – I probably wouldn’t want to say exactly – but it depends on the conditions. You never know. But he’s capable of getting out there and hitting a field goal, not just an extra point.”
