Ravens mascot injured in halftime football game
Injuries are often the most important news National Football League preseason.
Sometimes even the mascot is not safe.
Baltimore Ravens mascot Poe was taken away with an apparent injury at halftime of Saturday night’s game against the Washington Commanders.
ESPN reports The mascot is injured in the midfield football match between the mascot team and the youth football team.
Poe was on the court for nearly five minutes as observers reportedly weren’t sure if he was actually injured.
One report said the person in the lawsuit may have suffered a torn ACL.
An update on the mascot’s injury is not expected to be released Saturday night.
The Ravens will win 17-15, extending their preseason winning streak to 23.
The commanders tied the game with 5:31 left when Sam Howell threw a 13-yard touchdown pass to Reggie Bonnafon. An incomplete 2-point conversion pass helped keep the streak alive, but Baltimore defensive back Kevin Seymour injured his ankle in the game. Teammate Zacoby McLean appeared to fall on Seymour’s right leg.
it is in last year’s preseason The Ravens lost running back JK Dobbins to a season-ending knee injury. They appear to have avoided anything serious this year — although in addition to Poe’s injury, Baltimore announced defensive tackle Aaron Crawford was down with a groin problem.
Neither team took many chances: Neither quarterbacks Lamar Jackson nor Carson Wentz played.
