Vedvik injured; Litton waived
Baltimore Ravens rookie kicker Kaare Vedvik from Marshall University was being treated at Maryland Shock Trauma Center after being found injured in east Baltimore early Saturday morning, police and the hospital confirmed, The Baltimore Sun newspaper reported.
Vedvik, a kicker and punter from Norway who impressed in the preseason, was placed on the team’s reserve non-football injury list Saturday.
In a statement to the newspaper the Ravens said, “We are aware that Kaare is being treated for head wounds and we are monitoring the situation.”
Vedvik, 24, was listed in stable condition at Shock Trauma on Saturday afternoon, the hospital said.
Police confirmed that Vedvik was found suffering from “upper body injuries” around 4 a.m. in the 2000 block of Boone St., in the East-Baltimore Midway neighborhood. They said they have not yet confirmed how his injuries occurred and are continuing to investigate.
NFL teams trimmed their rosters to the 53-player limit Saturday.
The Kansas Chiefs waived rookie quarterback Chase Litton from Marshall. The Kansas City Star newspaper reported Litton had a solid camp and is a good practice squad candidate if he clears waivers. In three preseason appearances, Litton completed 24 of 41 passes for 299 yards and one touchdown.
