BALTIMORE -- The Baltimore Ravens team plane was forced to make an unscheduled landing early Tuesday in Pittsburgh so injured cornerback Corey Ivy could go to a hospital.

Ivy was in stable condition at UPMC-Presbyterian hospital, where he was expected to stay at least through Wednesday for testing, observation and examination by renal specialists, according to a team statement. Ravens spokesman Chad Steele described the injury as a kidney tear.

Ivy was hurt in Monday night's game at Denver when he was hit during a punt return in the third quarter, the Ravens said. He was evaluated on the field and again after the game, when X-rays were taken, said the Ravens' head physician, Dr. Andrew M. Tucker.

"His status changed during the flight when his discomfort became more significant," Tucker said. "Although he was stable, we decided that we should get him to a hospital, where more sophisticated testing could be given, sooner rather than later."

The plane landed about 4 a.m. and Ivy and Tucker went to the hospital. The plane resumed its trip to Baltimore with the rest of the team, landing there about 5:45 a.m.

Ivy, 29, signed a three-year contract with the Ravens in March. He has also played for St. Louis and Tampa Bay.

Bad news for a former Buc.  Best wishes for a speedy recovery, Corey.

between this and Chris Simms' spleen, you can bet there's going to be a lot of talk about MRI machines at NFL stadiums this offseason.
