Early indications are that Ravens defensive tackle Timmy Jernigan dodged a significant knee issue, but he's still expected to miss some practice time and his status for the team's Sept. 13 regular-season opener against the Denver Broncos is in question, sources said.

Jernigan, who was hurt in the first quarter of the Ravens' loss to the Washington Redskins on Saturday night, probably wouldn't have played in Thursday's preseason finale against the Atlanta Falcons anyway. Now, that's all but certain and he'll need to heal fast to be ready for the Broncos.

The team's top replacement for Haloti Ngata, Jernigan missed four games last season with a knee injury and also had some knee issues at Florida State.

In other injury news, cornerback Chris Greenwood, who was hurt during Saturday's fourth quarter, has a torn hamstring and could be headed to injured reserve.

The Ravens return to practice Monday and they are optimistic that they'll have wide receiver Michael Campanaro (soft-tissue injury) and cornerback Lardarius Webb (hamstring) back on the field early this week. Both participated in individual pre-game workouts Saturday and moved around well.
