Ravens: Mason jarred

The suspense continues to build at Ravens training camp, where veteran wideout Derrick Mason had to be helped off the field with a twisted right ankle. It doesn't appear to be a serious setback, but the Ravens will just have to wait and see.

If there is a bright side to this particular injury -- regardless of the severity -- it is that the Ravens have decidedly more depth at wide receiver this year with the addition of veterans Anquon Boldin and Donte Stallworth and rookie David Reed. If Mason misses a lot of time, it could create more reps for Demetrius Williams, who may need to move up the depth chart at least on slot to make the team.

There is a wide range of possibility here for Mason. If it's a garden-variety ankle sprain, he shouldn't be out for more than a week or two. If it's a high ankle sprain, that's a much more time-consuming injury.
