Eugene Monroe, Rick Wagner undergoing tests today on injuries

The Ravens will hope for good news for their starting tackles.

Having to deal with Sunday's loss to the Texans, the Ravens will be hoping more bad news doesn't follow them.

During the game, both left tackle Eugene Monroe and right tackle Rick Wagner suffered injuries to the foot and ankle area and were spotted wearing walking boots after the game. Earlier Monday, The Baltimore Sun's Aaron Wilson revealed that both will undergo tests to figure out the status of each tackle moving forward.

It doesn't appear that either injury is season-ending, which is obviously good if the Ravens are able to get into the playoffs. Of course, the Ravens need a win over Cleveland next Sunday to be in the possible position of being in the playoffs. Having these two tackles available for that game will be important.

The Ravens could probably get by with having just one available. They won't be going against a J.J. Watt kind of player, though Cleveland's front seven is formidable. That said, only having to plug in James Hurst would be a much better situation than having to shuffle the line around with both players out.

We'll likely know more about the situation at tackle during John Harbaugh's 4 p.m. presser today.
