BALTIMORE – Ravens wide receiver Mike Wallace went to the locker room late in the second quarter to be examined for an undisclosed injury.
Wallace was seen talking with medical staff on the sideline, acting like he was trying to talk himself back into the game. After sitting out one offensive series, Wallace was taken to the locker room, with no word from the team as to why.
Losing Wallace for the second half would be a blow for the Ravens.
He scored the only touchdown of the first half – an electrifying 95-yard catch and run that was the longest play from scrimmage in Ravens history. The Ravens only have six touchdown receptions all season, and Wallace has four of them.
UPDATE: Wallace is back on the field after what is being described as an undisclosed illness.

Steve Smith Sr. returned to the lineup Sunday after missing the last two games with an ankle injury. Smith four catches for 47 yards in the first half, while Breshad Perriman had three catches for 33 yards.
However, Wallace has been productive all season, and has quickly established chemistry with quarterback Joe Flacco after being signed during free agency. Wallace’s status was expected to be updated after he was examined.
