Once he was back in Baltimore, Ravens right tackle Michael Oher caught the replay of Ray Rice's 1-yard touchdown during last Thursday's 49-27 loss to Denver.
In the background of the run, right guard Marshal Yanda fell back onto Oher's ankle, which sprained it. Due to the injury, Oher was unable to the game. On tape, the injury looked a bit serous. But Oher has earned a reputation as someone with a high pain tolerance.
Being unable to return certainly gave some cause for concern.
But Oher was able to fully participate in practice Wednesday, which means he'll most likely be able to go this Sunday against Cleveland, barring any setbacks.
"Looking at it on film, [I] definitely got let off the hook and got lucky," Oher said. "I just thank the man above."
Oher was drafted in 2009 in the first round of Ole Miss. He hasn't missed a game in Baltimore and has been a mainstay on the offensive line, whether it's been at left or right tackle.
Though he's played through injuries in the past, he mentioned he hasn't sustained one quite like this.
"I just work hard to be out there every Sunday," Oher said. "But this is one of the worst sprains I've had."
Oher will be needed this Sunday against a Cleveland team that held Miami to 20 rushing yards on 23 total carries.
It would appear Oher's done everything possible to get ready for Sunday's game, despite the injury. He's taking a cautious approach, though
"It definitely hurt me pretty good, [or] pretty bad," Oher said. "I'm getting a lot of treatment, trying to stay on top of it. Hopefully I can go Sunday."
