Ravens Head Coach John Harbaugh revealed that defensive lineman Paul Kruger will miss at least two weeks with a knee injury suffered in Sunday’s 17-14 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Kruger had a magnetic resonance imaging exam on Monday to determine the severity of his injury.

“Paul’s got a little strain in his ligament,” Harbaugh said on his weekly radio show on WBAL 1090.  “He’ll be out for probably about two weeks minimum.”

Kruger saw his first live action of the season in Pittsburgh after he was deactivated for the Ravens’ first three contests.

The 2009 second-round draft pick did not record any tackles, but did bat a pass from Steelers quarterback Charlie Batch.  Kruger also notched a sack and strip of Batch, but the play was negated by a penalty.
