The Ravens wide receiver Michael Campanaro sprained his toe during Wednesday’s OTAs practice last week. Head Coach John Harbaugh announced that the injury is not severe and he is expected to be back before the start of training camp. The wideout is entering his fourth season and has been often injured since he was selected in the seventh round (218th overall) by the Baltimore Ravens back in the 2014 NFL Draft.
Coach Harbaugh said that Michael Campanaro sprained his toe in practice and will be out a little while. Not serious, but a nuisance.

Campanaro’s injury history started early as he played just four games as a rookie, mostly due to a thigh injury. He was proving to be useful in Baltimore’s offense until injuring his hamstring in a Week 8 matchup against the Cincinnati Bengals. He did return from injury in Week 17 against the Cleveland Browns, recording one catch for 17 yards in a 20-10 win. His second season was cut short after just four games after he had scored an impressive 9-yard touchdown on a jet sweep vs Pittsburgh, He was placed on injured reserve officially on October 3 due to a herniated disc.
Michael Campanaro missed practice today with a sprained toe suffered yesterday. It’s just OTAs but the history here is daunting…

Last year, a calf injury also suffered during OTAs knocked him out of offseason work and lingered into training camp. He re-aggravated it and was released with an injury settlement, but re-signed to the practice squad and was activated to the 53-man roster on December 14th, 2016. On April 6, 2017, Campanaro signed a one-year contract worth up to $2 million with a $250,000 signing bonus and a $250,000 roster bonus. the 5-foot-9 receiver has shown some versatility when he is able too to stay on the field totaling 56 Rushing yards, 1 rushing touchdown, and 145 Return yards but only has 12 career catches for 137 yards and 1 touchdown.
