Ravens lose CB Stanley Jean-Baptiste to broken arm, LB Kenny Young spotted in a knee brace

NFL: Baltimore Ravens-Training Camp Tommy Gilligan-USA TODAY Sports

While the Ravens finished perfect in the preseason, they lost multiple players to injury, including at least one tonight. Harbaugh announced Stanley Jean-Baptiste suffered a possible broken arm and rookie LB Kenny Young was spotted in a knee brace.

This is a big blow to the Ravens roster as Jean-Baptiste looked like a possible candidate to replace Jimmy Smith after he received a four-game suspension for violating the NFL’s personal conduct policy. Only goes to show the Ozzie Newsome mantra, ‘you can never have enough corners,’ is always true.

Another disheartening loss could come in the form of Young missing playing time this season after he was spotted in a knee brace. There hasn’t been an update yet and Harbaugh said he didn’t receive an update at the podium, but he was looking capable of overtaking Patrick Onwuasor for the starting linebacker position beside All-Pro C.J. Mosley. Hopefully, both Young and the team receive positive news tomorrow.

Due to these injuries this could further shake up an already tight roster position between the linebackers, defensive backs and and even ripple into some offensive depth players making the team. If so, expect some interesting moves the following two days as every NFL club cut down their respective rosters’ to 53 players.

UPDATE

Kenny Young spoke to reporters following the game.
