Ravens right tackle Michael Oher's sprained ankle not serious

The Ravens are fortunate that Michael Oher will probably not miss any game time with a sprained ankle. - Evan Habeeb-US PRESSWIRE

The Baltimore Sun's Aaron Wilson reported that the Ravens' right tackle should be OK following a sprained ankle sustained against Denver.

Ravens right tackle Michael Oher will probably not miss any time due to the sprained ankle he sustained during Thursday's game against Denver, according to a report from the Baltimore Sun's Aaron Wilson.

Oher injured his ankle on Ray Rice's 1-yard touchdown run in the first half of Baltimore's 49-27 loss to Denver. As Rice was sweeping to the right side, guard Marshal Yanda crashed into Oher, which rolled his ankle.

Oher had to leave the game and was unable to return to the field. The Ravens were forced to plug in rookie tackle Rick Wagner, who couldn't handle the Broncos' pass rush as well.

The difference as night and day with Oher out of the game. The Broncos began to attack Joe Flacco and the offense. Though Wagner had a solid preseason, it was evident he's not ready for major minutes yet.

Getting Oher back this week against Cleveland will be a huge lift for an organization that suddenly is low on quality depth at both receiver and tight end.

Oher has a reputation for being one of the tougher players on the team. He's yet to miss a game since the Ravens drafted him in 2009.
