Baltimore Ravens rookie left tackle Ronnie Stanley will not play today for the second week in a row due to a foot injury as the team gets ready to face the Washington Redskins. Ravens rookie left guard Alex Lewis will start at left tackle today instead of James Hurst.

Lewis missed last weeks game against the Oakland Raiders as he was under concussion protocols. Lewis has been cleared this week and with him starting at left tackle, it remains to be seen who will start at left guard. It could either be John Urschel or Ryan Jensen. Jensen didn’t exactly have a good game against the Raiders, but the Ravens might give him a chance to redeem himself.
The injuries that the Ravens are having along the offensive line especially at left tackle is a risk that the Ravens were apparently willing to take. The team had an opportunity to sign a veteran in left tackle Jake Long before the regular season started but both sides could not agree to a deal.
