Todd Heap said he's day to day with a hamstring injury and it has improved every day. But the Ravens tight end isn't going to rush back after his experience in 2007. He played in two of the next five games after injuring his hamstring before sitting out the remainder of the season.
"I'm going to be smart," he said. "If anything, over the last 10 years, I've learned a few lessons. The last time I did hurt my hamstring, I came back too early and re-injured it, and that pretty much cost me the rest of the season. So there's a fine line you have to walk there, and I'm trying to be a little bit smart about how I go about it because of the situation we're in as well. Where we're at as a team – record-wise and being in the hunt – I want to make sure that I do what's right for me and the team."
