Gooden Has a Mild Sprain

The Ravens don't consider starting inside linebacker Tavares Gooden's sprained right knee to be a serious injury.

Gooden was slated to have a magnetic resonance imaging exam on Monday. Initial X-rays revealed no ligament tears or significant damage.

"We think right now it's a mild knee sprain," Harbaugh said. "We'll just see how it responds this week.

It's unclear, though, if he'll be ready to start this week against the San Diego Chargers. If Gooden can't go, then Jameel McClain would likely fill in for him.
