Another tight end injury

It's become a snakebitten position for the Ravens. With reserve tight end Quinn Sypniewski out for the season with a knee injury and Daniel Wilcox not fully recovered from toe surgery, a bunch of free agents are filling the void as Todd Heap's backups.

One of them, Scott Kuhn, joined the list of the injured today in Owings Mills when the rookie from Louisville broke his left thumb during a punt drill. That leaves Joe Reitz, a former college basketball player from Western Michigan, and Lee Vickers, a second-year player who was brought when Heap and Wilcox went down last season. Vickers hasn't practiced the past two days because of an undisclosed hand injury.

The Ravens are also trying to convert another free agent, Xavier Lee, who never lived up to the hype that followed him to Florida State as one of the nation's top high school quarterbacks. He ironically left Tallahassee in part because the Seminoles wanted to convert him to tight end.
