Ravens safety Tony Jefferson ‘dying inside’ to return from hamstring pull

Ravens safety Tony Jefferson ‘dying inside’ to return from hamstring pull

A hamstring pull relegated Tony Jefferson to spectator status during the Ravens’ joint practices with the Los Angeles Rams on Monday and Tuesday at the team’s headquarters in Owings Mills.

The starting strong safety watched both sessions from the sideline, and he said not being able to participate is frustrating.

“I’m dying inside,” he said Tuesday. “I’ve been pressing on my trainer, and I know he’s sick of me asking when I can go out there. But I’ve got to do the necessary procedures so that I can play.”

While calling the pull “nothing really serious,” Jefferson agreed with the medical staff’s decision to keep him off the field.
