To go along with losing two consecutive games at home and firing offensive coordinator Marc Trestman on Monday, the Baltimore Ravens have now been hit with some key injuries leading up to their game this week against the New York Giants. Players like Steve Smith Sr., Elvis Dumervil, Rick Wagner, Marshal Yanda, C.J. Mosley, and Devin Hester have been sidelined during the first two days of practice. Even safety Kendrick Lewis left Thursday’s practice with an injury.
However, the Ravens did get some good news Thursday and some much needed reinforcements on the left side of the offensive line. Rookie left tackle and the 6th overall pick in the 2016 NFL draft Ronnie Stanley returned to the practice field for the first time in three weeks after missing the last two games due to a foot injury, per the Baltimore Sun’s Jeff Zreibec.
While the Ravens could very likely be without the starting right side of their offensive line this week, it looks like the left side of guard Alex Lewis and tackle Ronnie Stanley will be back together in full force for the first time since Week 3 against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Stanley's return should help an offensive line that desperate needs it as they go up against a strong Giants defensive line at MetLife Stadium.
