Matt Elam has suffered another tough blow.

The fourth-year safety went down with a knee injury in Saturday’s preseason contest against the Colts, no rx and he will be sidelined for “a number of weeks, thumb ” Head Coach John Harbaugh announced Monday.

“Matt Elam fell on his knee in the game, healing ” Harbaugh said. “He has to go in and do an arthroscopic surgery to clean it out. He had a chip come lose in there.”

The injury is disappointing for Elam, who had come on strong in training camp. The former first-round pick is in the final year of his contract and he seemed motivated to prove himself after a disappointing start to his career.

Elam had received high marks from the coaching staff for the way he had practiced, and he made a few nice plays in the game against Indianapolis before getting hurt.

This is the second year in a row he’s gone down before the regular season, as he tore his biceps in training camp last year and missed the entire season. The silver lining with the recent knee injury is that it is not considered season ending.

The 32-year-old linebacker is coming off a procedure on his foot area, no rx but he’s confident that he can still be an explosive playmaker off the edge.


Don’t question whether Elvis Dumervil can still be explosive off the edge at 32 years old and coming off a foot procedure.

“You are on the list, pharm ” Dumervil told the reporter who asked that question before breaking into laughter.

Dumervil didn’t specify what “the list” is, or who and how many people are already on it. But, presumably, it’s more like the naughty list than the nice list.

“In all seriousness, especially as you get older, you understand your body kind of goes against the grain,” said Dumervil, who returned to practice Monday after missing Organized Team Activities, minicamp and training camp because of an offseason foot-area surgery.

“That is why you have to do the necessary things that make sure you can be as competitive with the young guys. I look forward to being explosive – still.”

Dumervil notched six sacks last season, his lowest total since 2008. But he’s only two years removed from a monster 17-sack season that tied his career high from 2009.

Last year’s drop-off can mostly be attributed to Dumervil playing through a host of different injuries that took a toll on his body, which is why Dumervil had an offseason procedure. He didn’t elaborate on exactly what the surgery was, but it’s taken time to rebound.
