The Baltimore Ravens have had injury problems in 2021, but they’re still getting some big wins. Somehow, one of those big wins directly led to an injury on Sunday.

The Ravens beat the Detroit Lions 19-17 thanks to a record-setting 66-yard field goal by Justin Tucker as time expired. That was certainly worth celebrating. Unfortunately for the Ravens, linebackers coach Drew Wilkins celebrated a little too hard and hurt his hamstring.

Usually it’s the players who go down like this. Nevertheless, the coaches tend to be a little older and not in peak shape. Maybe it’s surprising that this doesn’t happen more often.

Wilkins’ injury may have been prevented if the refs had gotten a key call right. We’re betting he’s just fine with things working out the way they did.
