New Offensive Coordinator Marty Mornhinweg will be facing a very difficult challenge today, with the Ravens offensive unit in bad shape.
This was Ravens starting OL in warmups: LT Alex Lewis, LG John Urschel, C Jeremy Zuttah, RG Ryan Jensen, RT James Hurst— John Eisenberg (@BmoreEisenberg) October 16, 2016
Once more the rookie star Ronnie Stanley is sidelined. It’s been tough without the sixth overall pick, but Alex Lewis has fared well. The biggest problem is now the right side of the offensive line. Marshal Yanda, the best guard in football, is now out due to a shoulder injury. Ryan Jensen is filling in.
Right tackle Ricky Wagner is also not playing. The Ravens will be using James Hurst at the right tackle spot now.
The Ravens are in big trouble. Both starting tackles are not playing, and the All-Pro guard who bails the line out on bad plays is gone. Expect false starts, expect holding calls and expect Joe Flacco to be on the turf horizontally.
Good luck to Marty Mornhinweg on the trial by fire.
