Ravens DE Calais Campbell suffers thigh injury vs. Browns – Twin Citie…

A banged-up Ravens defense took another hit Sunday.

Defensive end Calais Campbell left Sunday’s game against the Cleveland Browns early in the first quarter with a thigh injury. After being listed as questionable to return, Campbell returned a few plays later on an additional-point attempt.

Campbell, who missed practice Wednesday with an illness and missed practice time last week with a concussion, was attended to by trainers and walked gingerly off the field under his own strength before heading into the blue medical tent. He kept his helmet on while trying to stay loose on the sideline.

Campbell’s injury comes one week after the Ravens lost starting cornerback Marlon Humphrey for the season with a torn pectoral muscle. The Ravens started cornerbacks Anthony Averett and Chris Westry and rookie safety Brandon Stephens on Sunday after losing cornerback Marcus Peters (knee) and safety DeShon Elliott (biceps/pectoral) to season-ending injuries earlier this season.

Campbell, a six-time Pro Bowl selection, has been the Ravens’ most reliable defensive lineman this season. The 35-year-old has 38 tackles, 1 ½ sacks and four tackles for loss and is the team’s highest-graded defender, according to Pro Football Focus. He ranks fourth among defensive linemen in the NFL with an 84.3 overall grade.
