NFL: Baltimore Ravens at Cleveland Browns Scott R. Galvin-USA TODAY Sports

As if it wasn’t enough already, the Ravens offensive line may take the biggest hit possible against the New York Giants. There is a big possibility of not seeing right guard Marshal Yanda play on Sunday.

Yesterday Marshal Yanda did not practice due to a shoulder injury according to the Ravens official report.

The man has played in 131 games in his NFL career and started in 120 of them. Losing the four time All-pro creates Sunday into a lop-sided affair. Both Jason Pierre-Paul and Olivier Vernon will be thrilled with this news, as both defensive ends can produce on the right side with the best NFL guard absent.

As La Canfora reported, Ryan Jensen is the expected back-up. Jensen has played in 11 games, starting in six. His play is adequate, but going from the best in the NFL to average in one area really depletes the offensive capabilities.

This first game for Marty Mornhinweg will be a tough one. As it stands Steve Smith Sr. and Rick Wagner joined Yanda in the ‘Did Not Participate’ category of practice yesterday. Surely a tough game to coordinate when you lose the two starting pieces to your offensive line and also a top receiver on the team.
