In addition, tight end Ed Dickson has a partially torn hamstring and will be out for at least one to two weeks.

The Ravens avoided a scare on Monday, as running back Ray Rice turned his ankle during practice.

However, the prognosis came back positive and coach John Harbaugh revealed that it was nothing serious.

Harbaugh also announced that tight end Ed Dickson has a partially torn hamstring and will miss at least a week or two. From there, the organization will evaluate him and see where he's at.

"We got the MRI back," Harbaugh said. "There’s a little tear in there, so we’re going to hold him back for a week or so and we’ll see where we’re at. We’re going to try to get him healthy. It’s going to be a matter of time, but it’s not going to be a long time.”

The injury doesn't sound too serious, though hamstrings can linger if they don't properly heal. It sounds like the Ravens will take a cautious approach so that Dickson isn't rushed back to the field too soon.
