The Baltimore Ravens already have the best kicker in the NFL, Justin Tucker, but lately, it's been their preseason backup kicker, Kaare Vedvik, who's been garnering the headlines and not for a good reason.
Vedvik was found in East Baltimore early Saturday morning with head and upper body injuries. His phone and wallet were also missing and police said the injuries were consistent with an assault.
Although we may never know for sure because Vedvik doesn't even know himself.
According to Baltimore City Police incident report, Ravens kicker Kaare Vedvik told team's VP of security that he was with a couple of teammates in Fells Point earlier in the evening and they wanted to leave. Vedvik wanted to stay out longer with "a couple of ladies he was with."— Jamison Hensley (@jamisonhensley) September 4, 2018
For those not from Baltimore, there's quite a bit of distance between Fells Point and the area where Vedvik was found, but no one has any idea how he got there.
According to police report, teammates called Vedvik at 3:09 a.m. and Vedvik said "he was good." Vedvik told Ravens that he doesn't remember anything after that or how he ended up at the East Baltimore location where he was found. Vedvik said his wallet and phone were missing.— Jamison Hensley (@jamisonhensley) September 4, 2018
So all that's known for sure is Vedvik decided to stay out by himself after his teammates went home and eventually ended up battered, bruised and robbed in East Baltimore.
We can assume all we want about Vedvik's injuries and why he doesn't remember anything, but the only person that would know for sure is Vedvik himself (and his assailants). As long as he doesn't remember what happened, then the events that occurred between 3 a.m. and 4 a.m. Saturday morning will probably forever remain a mystery.
