Baltimore Ravens linebacker Malik Harrison shot in leg by stray bullet; injury not life-threatening

The team announced Monday that Malik Harrison, Baltimore Ravens' inside linebacker, was not suffering from a life-threatening injury following being hit by a stray shot in his left calf.
Harrison, 23 years old, was hurt during a gathering held in Cleveland Sunday night as the Ravens were out of town.

Harrison, a third-round selection in 2020 is expected to return to Baltimore Monday after he has been treated at a Cleveland hospital.

Harrison played in the first five games, but his play has declined significantly since then. Harrison has only taken 20 defensive snaps since the start of the season, as Josh Bynes, a veteran at the middle linebacker position, has started to get more attention.

Harrison is known as an inside thumper and ranks ninth among the Ravens, with 22 tackles.

The Ravens (5-2), lead the AFC North, and will host the Minnesota Vikings (3-4) on Sunday.
