OWINGS MILLS -- Baltimore Ravens rookie linebacker Sergio Kindle might not be allowed to play football next year after fracturing his skull in late July.

Kindle disclosed that doctors have expressed concern that he won't be medically cleared for next season.

"Dr's up here make'n me nervous bout my chances of come'n back next yr!!" Kindle wrote on his Twitter account. "dey aint say'n i wont play but dey aint say'n i am eitha!! KING SERG ..

"yal know its a business so if i cant play next yr, dey aint gon keep me here!! But [expletive] IT i gota keep grind'n so i can ball out next yr!!"

Kindle has previously told 24x7 that he expects to take part in offseason minicamps, if there's no lockout.

Signed to a one-year minimum contract with no signign bonus, Kindle is on the reserve non-football injury list and isn't allowed to practice.

He attends meetings and practices, lifts weights and goes to therapy.

The Ravens can retain Kindle's rights for next season as an exclusive-rights free agent.
