Ravens defensive end Calais Campbell injured his calf in the first quarter of Sunday’s road game against the Indianapolis Colts, another blow to an injury-hampered defense.
On the third play from scrimmage, Campbell was engaged in a double-team block and fell to the ground. He walked slowly to the sideline and sat on a bench with trainers before being carted to the locker room, and not return to the game.
Ravens coach John Harbaugh said after the game that Campbell is dealing with a “calf strain of some kind” and that the injury is “not serious.”
Rookie defensive linemen Justin Madubuike entered the game for Campbell, who leads the Ravens with four sacks this season. The 34-year-old Campbell, acquired this offseason from the Jacksonville Jaguars, has missed just six games in his 13-year career and hasn’t sat out since 2014.
Cornerback Khalil Dorsey also suffered a shoulder injury in the first quarter and left the game. Dorsey was seen walking to the team’s locker room after a punt, but later returned. He was shaken up again near the end of the game after making a tackle on a punt return.
The Ravens played without starting cornerback Marlon Humphrey, who tested positive for COVID-19 earlier in the week, as well inside linebacker L.J. Fort, who’s dealing with a finger injury.
Jackson ties record with Marino
Sunday’s 24-10 win over the Colts gave quarterback Lamar Jackson his 25th victory as a starting quarterback, tying Miami Dolphins great Dan Marino for the most in a quarterback’s first 30 regular-season starts since the 1970 merger.
“Lamar would tell you it’s a team effort and I think the team would tell you we couldn’t win those games without Lamar,” coach John Harbaugh said.
Jackson, staying true to form, didn’t revel when informed of the record.
“It’s pretty cool that I’m up there with a Hall of Famer, but [we’ve] still got to win each and every game, so it’s all right,” Jackson said.
