Ravens WR Michael Campanaro has herniated disc, no surgery required, week to week, sources say
Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Michael Campanaro has a herniated disc and doesn't require surgery, according to sources. Campanaro is regarded as week to week. The injury has been estimated as taking anywhere from a few weeks to as many as six weeks to recover from. Campanaro got injured during an overtime win over the Pittsburgh Steelers on Thursday night. He was in a wheelchair after the game, but is no longer in one Friday and is walking under his own power. Campanaro scored a touchdown on an end around against the Steelers. Campanaro caught two passes for 16 yards and returned a kickoff 24 yards and a punt 14 yards. A former Wake Forest standout and seventh-round draft pick, Campanaro had a strained quadriceps in the spring that sidelined him and a hamstring injury as a rookie. The back injury was sustained on a hit. He has five catches for 35 yards this season. Campanaro is an athletic, versatile slot receiver and return specialist who has battled injuries during his first two seasons in the NFL.
