Found August 12, 2013 on Pro Football Zone:
According to the Baltimore Sun,  Ravens tight end Ed Dickson is still out with a hamstring injury and is not ready to rush himself so he can get back on the field. “You can’t rush back those things,” Dickson said. “I’m trying my hardest to get back out there. It kills me. I’m hard on myself. I want to get back out there today, but I don’t want to go out and hurt the team and be out for weeks during the regular season. “It’s one of those things where you got to look back and see if you did all the right things to prevent the thing. You never know with a muscle pull. You have to make sure that you take care of it so it’s not recurring all the weeks in the season. You have to make sure you’re on top of those things. I’m pretty sure that we pinpointed it and we’re just trying to get it as healthy as we can.” Dickson can’t committ to being ready for the Ravens season opener against the Broncos. “I can’t make any predictions but I’m working hard to do that,” Dickson said. “It’s one of those things where it was really sore and I tried to prevent it by doing other things. The doctor said it went all the way through, so it’s not lingering through the season so I can  get all the way healthy and make me back to 100 percent.” This is exactly why the Ravens signed Dallas Clark over the weekend.

Dallas Clark still has a lot left in the tank for Ravens...
