With the Ravens season circling the drain, and many players suffering season ending injuries, the Ravens could use some good news. 2nd year backup running back Lorenzo Taliaferro and Will Davis are the latest Ravens to end up on  injured reserve, ending their seasons early.

However, those who are worried about the team can take solace in the fact that the Ravens top 2 receiving weapons look to be on the road to recovery:

If Gillmore and Smith Senior are able to play in the next week or two, it will provide a boost for an offense that already has the run game clicking and has received recent contributions from #2 wide receiver Kamar Aiken and the backup tight ends, especially Nick Boyle. Let us hope for a speedy recovery for both players.
