What Injury Would Hurt Ravens the Most, Besides QB

New, comments

Thinking of some positions that could trouble us with injury problems

Patrick Smith

Offense

Marshal Yanda: He is the anchor of our offensive line. He is the best guard in the NFL. He basically makes everybody on the O-Line better. We might have a decent backup, but there is no replacing Yanda.

Torrey Smith: This is obvious. He is the only proven WR on our roster. If we lost him, Joe and the rest of the team would probably fall apart.

Defense

Haloti Ngata: While we do have depth on our defensive line, Ngata is also irreplaceable. He is one of the best of the D-Line in the whole NFL. I'm surprised we even made it with Ngata having injury problems.

Michael Huff: This might make some of you question me. He is the only safety that we have that has lots of starting experience. If we have an Matt Elam/James Ihedigbo combo at safety, we could be in trouble. Don't get me wrong, I believe in Elam and am fine with Ihedigbo. It's just that Elam's a rookie and Ihedigbo has never been that good.

Players that we might be okay with if we lost

Ray Rice: We have Bernard Pierce to rush and Bobby Rainey/Kyle Juszczyk to catch passes.

Dennis Pitta: Ed Dickson/ Matt Furstenburg would be okay.

Terrell Suggs: Courtney Upshaw/John Simon for run downs and Pernell McPhee for pass downs.
