Ravens Injury Report


The Baltimore Ravens expected to have a lot of players back against the Texans after their bye week. Unfortunately, many didn’t heal up enough and weren’t they weren’t read to hit the field. Another week has passed since Ravens’ fans hope to see some new faces return to action on Monday night against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

More after the jump…

First round pick Jimmy Smith injured his ankle on the season opening kickoff against the Pittsburgh Steelers and he hasn’t seen the field since. He’s progressed tremedously since then and was a full participant at practice on Friday and Saturday. He’s listed as probable for the Jaguars but with Cary Williams and Lardrius Webb playing so well, it may not be neccessary to risk another injury with the young corner.

To round out the secondary injuries, Chris Carr and Tom Zbikowski are not expected to play. Carr said that he will not play unless his hamstring is 100% and Zbikowski has still not been cleared for contact after suffering a concussion against the New York Jets.

Both Ben Grubbs and Lee Evans are ruled out for Monday. Grubbs has a bad toe injury that has kept him out since week one. Evans has been out for the same amount of time with an ankle injury. Evans said earlier this week that he expects to come back sometime this season which wasn’t good news to many Ravens’ fans who thought that he’d return within the next couple of weeks. Although Andre Gurode has done a great job of stepping in for Grubbs, his prescense has been missed.

It would be a great sight for fans to see the Ravens’ first round draft pick return to action this week, but there’s no promises thus far. I’d like to see what Smith can do after he impressed me this preseason. He’s a natural athlete and looks to have a promising future with the Ravens.
