Baltimore Ravens rookie kicker Kaare Vedvik was transported to the Maryland Shock Trauma Center to treat non life-threatening head wounds, according to hospital's medical records and the Baltimore Police Department.
The 24-year-old was listed as being in stable condition on Saturday afternoon after police officers were called to a residence around 4 a.m. to tend to Vedvik, who was suffering from "upper body injuries."
"At this time, we have not confirmed how his injuries occurred," the Baltimore Police Department said in a statement issued to the public, also noting that the Baltimore Fire Department initially hailed officers to the scene. "Investigators are conducting follow ups in reference to this."
Vedvik, a kicker and punter from Norway and Marshall University, was placed on the Ravens' reserve non-football injury list Saturday. He'd impressed in preseason contests, connecting on a 56-yard field goal in Thursday's 30-20 win over the Redskins. Justin Tucker is the team's longtime kicker.
In a statement, the Ravens said: “We are aware that Kaare is being treated for head wounds and we are monitoring the situation.”
